APPIANO GENTILE – The next stop on a trip towards Europe. Tomorrow’s
opponents Parma are also looking to book their place, and Rolando spoke about
it on Inter Channel: "I ??think it’s going to be a very tough match for
us. We’ll be away from home and they’re in good form. We have to keep playing
the way we did in Genoa, where things went very well for us. The most important
thing is earning the three points.
"I believe it’s always easier to play at home rather than away, but
since Inter are a big team our opponents come to the San Siro and defend
heavily, which makes everything more difficult for us. There’s a bit more space
away from home, but I always prefer playing in front of our own fans. It’s never
easy, but we have to find a way to win these games, whether they’re at home or
away, and whether you have 10 or 20 players defending.
There’s always something new for Rolando, who is able to cover any role
in a 3-man defence: "It’s great for me because there’s always something
else I can discover. I’m always learning something new by playing in three
different positions, and that makes me a stronger player tactically.
"I’m happy with my season so far. There were some people who had
their doubts when I arrived, which I understood since I hadn’t played much in
the previous six months. But I was confident of my qualities as a player, and
the club knew I could bring something important. Now we have to win these games
and qualify for Europe, then we’ll discuss my future. What matters is that I
feel good here."
