Pettinari holds Roma dream

Stefano Pettinari, on loan at Crotone, spoke today to

“The national team? It’s normal to hope one day to play in the Azzurri, but I have yet to do so. Meanwhile, the immediate goal is to do well with Crotone in the playoffs and maybe win them. It’s clear that everyone’s dream is to play for a big club in Serie A. Roma? Well, it would be the icing on the cake. It’s where I started out in A and also in the Europa League. Totti is there and is a genuine example. I still remember the full Curva Sud when I entered the field in the second half of the match against Udinese. A return would be extraordinary.”
