Francesco Magnanelli, captain of Sassuolo, spoke to Sky Sport about his team’s performance in 2013 and its rise from Lega Pro to an eventual promotion to Serie A. “The difference from Serie B? Little has changed, the spirit of the team is always the same. Berardi? I always said that he is not ready to play for Juventus. He has all the potential to play for Juventus, but he still needs time to grow and improve. Only he will be able to lead us to avoid relegation. Memories of 2013? Having been promoted to Serie A with the team of my dreams. 7-0 loss to Inter? That match we were not ourselves, we looked at each other and we decided that going forward we will give everything we’ve got. ”
The 29 year old midfielder has played 13 games so far this season and has scored 0 goals. Sassuolo is currently in 18th place in the relegation zone, 1 point behind Chievo and Bologna.
