For you it is a return to the club with which you made your debut in B1, what prompted you to make this choice?

I am really happy to be able to return here in Busto alla Futura because with this company I started my career and it was my first home, in every sense, away from my parents. In this club, in the 3 years of B1 in which I played here, I have grown a lot and they have been very important for my career. When I got this call I had absolutely no doubt in accepting because I knew it was the right thing to do. This club is a big family for me and my own family is also very close to all the people of this group, my sister Sveva also played in the youth teams here. I strongly believe in the project that the company has designed and I already have excellent feelings about it. I am very happy with the work done in the construction of the team, in the choice of the coach and I am sure that we will all start with a great desire to do well and obtain results because we are all aligned on these aims. “.

I played for many years in Serie A2 and this is absolutely the league I love the most. It is a very difficult championship where giving up is never allowed, there are many matches and it is necessary to maintain consistency throughout the course. In these years I have understood that truly incredible perseverance is needed to be able to do well. I think I have reached this point in my career to be a complete player, I have the same desire to start that I had as a child in my first experiences, on the other hand I have the awareness and experience that I have acquired over the years. I am convinced that work always pays off and it can only be done well if we remain compact and focused on the fact that we will always have to give our best on every occasion and I am absolutely ready for all this. So I hope to bring these sides of me into the group and be able to be of help to my companions “.

I believe that the most important thing will be to concentrate a lot on daily work because, as I said before, I am convinced that only thanks to this will the results come. The goal, of course, is to win as many games as possible and to do this you have to face it with the right spirit Sunday after Sunday. The goal, therefore, will be to always give the best in training so as to always be ready to take the field on Sunday, accumulating so many positive races. In short, I don’t want to go too far, but I’m sure that the small steps can lead to building something big “.
