"Personally I feel very good, it was a difficult period for me. But I worked a lot. Yesterday, I think I put in a good performance and I'm really happy. Speaking of the team, we're optimistic because we've already done a great job here in the training camp and we're almost ready for the championship to resume."
On the hope to the second consecutive Scudetto:
"We believe in it, we have to believe in it. We have to face each match as if it were a final. And in the end we'll see where we end up."
