VERONA – "To win a game like this you need a solid defence. It makes the task a whole lot easier if you can keep a clean sheet, especially with such great players up front," smiled Rolando as he spoke to reporters following tonight’s match at the Stadio Bentegodi.
He added: "I understand that some people might not have had a lot of confidence in me when I joined because I didn’t feature much at Napoli. Besides anything else, I wasn’t properly fit after those months. But then, with the help of the coach and everyone else at the club, everything started going well for me here."
