“We had the right attitude today and we controlled the match. Like last week’s match with Udinese, we encountered another side that defended well, and we found it a bit harder in the first half, but in the second we managed to create more chances.”
The captain on the progress made these past few months during the solid run of form:
“In the past few months, the team has made the step-up and our mental approach is making the difference. We are now playing with more confidence and that is down to us.”
The club faces a tough task next week when they battle Napoli. The former Fiorentina man on the upcoming battle with the Scudetto contenders:
“Up next is Napoli, one of the in-form teams in the league, but we are ready and we have what it takes to make it hard for them.”
