"I think we got off to a good start, especially the first 5-6 minutes, then the team was a little tense, they are there after 2 defeats, they felt the responsibility to have a good match and result and as soon as Cesena came here. We had a good match in the dribble phase, in the defensive phase we crushed ourselves too much, we had to have more courage to go forward, but it's not easy after 2 defeats in 2 games, but we have always been in the game. A victory that gives the boys confidence."
On what he said to his team before the match:
"I told them to free their heads because the performances were there and undoubtedly there must be no drops in pressure... During the week I saw them well , today apart from a few flaws they played a good match, now let's think about the next one which will be difficult."
On Youns El Hilali:
"I am talking about the team, he is an important element, just like there are others, the important thing is to make yourself available to the group. It would not be right to pick a name, because both the youngest and the oldest who are giving so much. We have to grow, then from the older ones I expect something more in terms of character to help and encourage the younger players."
Abate on Zlatan Ibrahimovic said anything to him:
"He wished me good luck. He was happy for me."
On the UEFA Youth League:
"A very important experience because it will make us understand that there are rhythms and quality abroad and beyond the result it will be a good experience because it will make us grow, but now let's think about Fiorentina."
