“Our second half was good, the first had a really slow tempo. It was also credit to Spezia for playing well, but we certainly need to improve so that we can play well for 90 minutes and not just 30.

“This is a fantastic group of players. With the arrival of the coach, we also have clear ideas. We might get them wrong sometimes, but the ideas are clear and there is this feeling of growth, although of course we need to do much better if we are to be competitive in Europe.”
