LOOKING OVER LECCE
"We are facing a well-organised team with fast players in the attacking department. We have to react after the elimination from the Champions League and carry the anger with us throughout the Serie A season. We will have to play an unspectacular game if necessary. Up to now Lecce has always kept the games in the balance, we know the importance of tomorrow’s match, we will have to take it on as a team, with great consistency."
"Dušan Vlahović will not be available for tomorrow as he didn't recover from an adductor/groin strain, and neither will Manuel Locatelli for personal reasons, however we have enough players available, they'll be 19 of us departing for Lecce. We are ready to play, in these situations the team will unite even more. Federico Chiesa and Paul Pogba will not be called up tomorrow and it's impossible for them to be available on Wednesday night against PSG and a 99% chance that will not even be there against Inter. I will decide whether or not to play Nicolò Fagioli and/or Fabio Miretti tomorrow."
"Right now we have to do something more to get out of this situation. It's an opportunity for everyone, it's a time for growth, I have a group of guys who have important moral values. Talking about the Scudetto today is useless, now we have to react starting from Lecce."
