Good morning Fabio, the grenades have conquered three very heavy points against Brescia and now space for Inter. What time is it for Taurus?
“The Bull is back from a precious victory, a direct clash that he could not lose. Very little is missing to achieve salvation. The success with Brescia has given enthusiasm “.
How do you explain the disappointing Turin championship?
“There are vintages that are born badly. When there is a change of technician during the current season, it is clear that things have not gone well. Torino was not built to save itself, it was on the left side of the standings. There are years that are particular and we must try not to make them tragically sporting, at least by saving salvation. Then, we will wonder what went wrong. ”
One of Turin’s major problems with both Mazzarri and Longo was the defensive performance, completely at the antipodes compared to the previous season.
“Yes, however, when it comes to defense we cannot speak only of one department but of the whole team. Both one of the old guard like Mazzarri, very tactically prepared, and a young man like Longo have tried to work in this direction but something has not been implemented in the best way and the team has always seemed a little unbalanced. The strange fact is that taken individually, the Torino players are very good, even in defense. People like Izzo, Bremer and Nkoulou are top-notch, without forgetting some outsiders like Ansaldi. Behind them there is also one of the best goalkeepers in Italy, Sirigu “.

After the forced break due to Covid-19, Inter had some difficulties, which emerged clearly with Bologna and Verona. How do you judge the first season of Conte on the neroazzurra bench?
“It is never easy to judge. The minimum has been reached, confirming the Champions League qualification. With the arrival of Conte and many other level players, something more was expected. It is clear that a vote cannot be given today, as there will still be Europa League matches in August, which could be worth the first trophy of the Zhang era. You don’t build a big company out of nothing, but step by step. I think Inter are maturing as a brand and as a playground. The future is bright and on the side of the neroazzurri ”.
Finally, leaving the context of Inter-Torino, over his five seasons in the grenade he has always declared that they cannot be forgotten. Because?
“Because when I think of Taurus the first thing that comes to my mind is the passion and attachment of the granata people. And then I had the good fortune to live many good moments, starting from the Derby that will be remembered even in a hundred years, from 0-3 to 3-3 with penalty missed by Salas. In addition, I got a promotion with Camolese and a tenth place in Serie A. I was also able to play Intertoto qualifiers “.
