Build-up to Pescara v Roma: Frederic Massara

Interview with the Giallorossi’s chief scout: “I played in the 1-1 at the Stadio Adriatico in ’93, but my best memory comes from the previous game between the sides, at the Olimpico: it was my debut in Serie A. It was a hot, late summer’s day. We won 1-0 with a goal from Nobile but I’ll never forget the atmosphere in the stadium that day. We went out to look at the pitch an hour and a half before kick-off. The Curva Sud was already packed to the rafters, an impressive sight.”
