“When I put my mind, my chips, Claudio, calm because now there are the camera want to see if you cry and then I say “no”., today “no”, I stay there. But the emotion inside me was at the top, at the top.
“I’m a very calm man. Also when I was young man, no more than ten times I’ve been to a disco. You can imagine me now go to a disco? No, no. Now I go upstairs, there is a little party with the chairman and all the families and then I go home. I hope to sleep but, i think so.

You can watch the feeling, how they played and how they will play next season. I ask to the players, show me you are the champions, the stadium is full. There are all the world behind you to watch how do you play. Our strength was our concentration, show me the concentration today. And they mad a fantastic, afantastic match.”
