Mister, as ever, is not continued the relationship with the notts county?

Then however are you also satisfied of the way to the play-off?

Do you have any regret?
“Perhaps the fact that, if he regained the championship, we could improve a little bit our position in the standings. Difficult, however, to complain because the situation was the same for everyone. We went in the final of the Cup and not far away from the final play-off, I would say that I have no regrets for this season.”
However they were play-off very special.
“Everything was abnormal, only to start the preparation and get started right away with a game as delicate as the Cup final. It has been interesting, different, and difficult to manage.

In theory, the budget to finish the season would have to be already there, at least in part, then I think they’re jumping the teams that already were evil, beyond of the Covid. The quarantine has simply exacerbated a problem for those companies that they needed to put money, while companies that were strong before the will even after”.
You already have some program for the next season?

“I think sincerely the team the most beautiful in Europe, you always makes me want to watch it. As you are competing in the Champions league, I think that Atalanta will be a nasty scab for all”.
