I want to win and get back to the top in Italy. “

He is an example for many strikers and when I was young I loved him, both on the pitch and for his team. strong character, both for the fact of being demanding every day with himself and with others. It is a healthy competition between us “. Meanwhile, a bomber is about to arrive who only wants the Devil.
