GIUSEPPE PEZZELLA AFTER PARMA 2-1 NAPOLI : “A LIBERATING VICTORY, WE’RE A VERY UNITED GROUP”

Parma, 22 July 2020 – Parma defender Giuseppe Pezzella had the following to say to DAZN after the 2-1 victory over Napoli this evening, a result which mathematically ensured the Crociati’s Serie A status:

“Yes, it was certainly a game which was of particular significance to me,” explained the no.97. “I’m very happy, even more so because survival is now a mathematical certainty. We’ve achieved three important points after seven matchdays where we perhaps haven’t performed really well but certainly didn’t deserve to suffer so many defeats. This is a liberating victory. We are a very united group, both on and off the pitch. Our embrace at the end was a real release following a vital win. The Coach spoke to us and reminded us of all the sacrifices we’ve made to reach 43 points, a tally which ensures survival. It was a great feeling. Kulusevski? He’s a very humble guy, he’s only focusing on Parma and will continue to do so until 2 August. After that, it’ll be time for him to concentrate on his next adventure. It’s very difficult to mark him in training, he’s such a strong player.”
