I want to get back quick. And we’ll be looking at things day by day with the medical staff. Now there’s the match against Udinese which is an important match and we want to go into it in the best way possible. I’ll be trying to get back for the match on Saturday and after that the game against Atletico.All the messages I’ve got have been very encouraging. Since I’ve been here, I’ve always felt the closeness of the fans and it’s something that’s a real source of pleasure.It was emotional to play at the Marassi stadium, a place where I spent important years in terms of my professional development. The fans welcomed me very well and it’s an emotion that I’ll always carry inside of me.I’m playing in what’s a new position for me. I feel good and I feel I can play an important role for the team. We want to continue improving. This is an important week for us. Udinese area tough team to face in their stadium, even in the difficult moments but we want to get a result. Against Atletico, it’ll be a great game and we want to get into the next round. We showed in the first leg that we can do it”.
