Team effort against Napoli
“It wasn’t just my substitution at half time that changed the game against Napoli, it was our sheer will to win. It was a difficult match but we managed to turn it around as a team.”
“(For the penalty incident) I wanted to get to the ball to score but I couldn’t because I was taken down. As for the contest as a whole, we produced a good performance in the second half and perhaps we deserved a little more than what we got in the end.
"The celebration with Dybala? He showed me a clip beforehand and we had even practiced it after training once…”
New system, same desire
“I like our new setup but the reasons for our results go beyond formations and tactics; it is hard work, determination and commitment than win you football matches. Every single one of us plays a key role in this squad, right from the first eleven to the guys starting on the bench.”
Back to Udine
“I will always have fond memories of my time in Udine. I made the transition from Colombia to Europe with them, and while it was a difficult period and I didn’t play much, it was a great experience from which I learned a lot.”
“There are some huge games coming up and we need to win all of them to keep the chasing pack at bay, starting with Udinese who will want to put on a show for their home supporters. We need to match their desire on the day."
