There are several approaches to anything, but I wouldn't be able to do it in his way, using all that technology, computers, e-mail.
He navigates the Internet, I navigate boats. But evidently he's able to do it.
We are playing in Florence where the people are passionate about soccer and a lot will depend on their support.
This is a big injection of confidence. I wanted a solid night of work, that was the plan. I'm glad we're moving in the right direction.
Tonight we showed we can play with three strikers.
First of all because we play them first, second because they have great players.

I have always received the maximum availability from Peruzzi, ... He is the right element to guarantee technical quality and charisma in this group.
[However, the coach expects to see an improvement from Cassano's team-mate Francesco Totti.] He is going through a good time, ... Finally, he is maturing alongside the team. But I don't want anyone to talk about leaders in this team, Totti is an important player.
When he has resolved his problems, Cassano will return.
