One of the most amusing parts of SportMob's article on the top
facts about Cristina Girelli
is a look back at her most interesting and controversial quotes about herself and other players.
On being called a veteran in women's football:
At Juventus, we are training where the men’s first team trained last year; we are training on the same pitch where (Paulo)Dybala
and everyone from Juventus trained. If you think about it, three years ago, you couldn’t believe that something like this could happen. I think a big step was made by this professional team who started to believe in women’s football.
On the experiences of three World Cups:
I am 29, but sometimes you recognise that you still have more to learn, and this year helped me a lot to do it. Also, Juventus gave me a different mentality. I hate to lose, even in training, but Juventus increased this even more. I think the national team will be grateful for this, because we have many players playing for Juventus; eight or nine in the national team. I think the national team will be happy, because this mentality will help in a game, or in a competition like a World Cup.
On the dramatic rise in media attention to women's football:
Doris Bacic, our Croatian goalkeeper, she’s funny, she’s crazy. To be honest, we are a team that likes to enjoy these moments, because having this helps to create the right atmosphere. You have to work, you have to train, but there is also a time to relax.
On her first goal for Italy national team:
I was born in Gavardo but I grew up in Novellara. I started to play football against boys until 14, so I think it helps me a lot, because when you play against boys, against men, you have to do more; you have to be stronger with the mind, with the feet. I was the captain and sometimes when I come here now, I see my ex-teammates.
On her goal scoring run for Juventus:
It’s my job. Juve pay me to score goals and I’m happy, because when a forward scores it means the team’s doing a good job. I miss the atmosphere in the stadium, the feeling of the fans cheering you on, we try to make them feel proud of us though. Playing football in such difficult times is reason enough for us to be happy, because we’re lucky.
