“I feel important here, for my teammates, the coach and the club. “I know that my teammates trust me and this allows me to give more,” the Italian national team player told Sky Sport Italia.
“We were talking today, when you win the first game 4-1, the second game is always a bit strange. You want to defend well, but Barcelona is so good at mastering and is the perfect team for that. “They make you tired so we could not resist as we wanted.”
“We also missed some important players like Neymar and Angel Di Maria, so their 3-4-3 formation made it difficult for us.”
