Collecchio23 August 2018 – It was a day of presentations at Crociati HQ today, with Francisco Sierralta joining Bruno Alves and Inglese out in front of the press.

The player is back after making 10 appearances for Parma last season, and this is what he had to say: “I am very glad to be back. Last year, I had the pleasure of training with and learning from Lucarelli. This year, we now have an experienced champion like Bruno Alves. I am very happy and I’m sure that I can learn a lot from him. I am convinced that we have a strong side and it’s one that can avoid relegation.

“I am a player that gives their all in training every day, and I want to make sure that I’m always ready. I train hard, always with the hunger to improve. To have a player like Bruno Alves in the dressing room can only help me. However, the group is always more important than the individual.

In terms of his shirt, Sierralta has picked the No.13: “It’s a number that I like. I wore it in Chile with the Under-20 National Team. The 13th is also the day that I got engaged, so these are the reasons behind my decision.”
