The words of Peter Terracciano

Pietro Terracciano gave a long interview to Radio Serie A with RDS in which he touched on many topics, starting with the Conference League final. "The anticipation grows every day, in quiet moments you feel it even more – he admitted – Now we have an important engagement in Cagliari, then we will go directly to Athens to face a final that for us è very important".

"Meanwhile, we have to focus on the championship,” the Viola goalkeeper then stressed, “becauseé è that is what gives you the certainty of arriving in Europe, then è it is clear that some hint of the final has already been given: è a fundamental commitment both for us and for the city; so è it is normal that more than one thought goes there. After last year we already know what awaits us, what we experienced emotionally last year will have to give us a big hand, with the understanding that we played a great final, lost in the way we all know".

"On an emotional level we arrive moreù ready, it will be a different game from last year, also becauseé every final è a sé and it counts relatively little what you have done up to that moment. My parade in Bruges? È it was a great save on a deflected shot that I saw come up at the last with a change of direction: I am happy because é è it served to close out the game in the 90th minute and take us to the final after a great game. If Dodô thanked me? He pretended not to, but I told him that in case we win in the final he will have toé buy me dinner".

Honeyed words for Coach Italiano: "Definitely at this level è the one who gave me the most confidence. From this point of view I can only be grateful to him, he proposed me something different from what I had done before, è it was an enrichment. Italiano gave me a’different interpretation of the role from previous years: although I found him at a’mature age with him I had the chance’to improve".

"Italian in this three-year period has given us the conviction that we can play against anyone and on all fields, never speculating on the type of opponent we meet: I think that in any stadium we have gone, against any opponent, we have shown that we are up to the task. This, I think, can please the fans as well: seeing a team play it with everyone makes them proud" Terracciano commented.
