Ricci: I hope to follow Florenzi

Federico Ricci spoke to Radio Mana Mana Sport about his loan move to Crotone.

Since you trained with the first team (with Roma), which of the new arrivals from last summer surprised you the most?
“They’re all very, very strong, but if I have to choose one: I’d say Gervinho because in addition to having a close relationship with him, I didn’t expect him to be so strong, many said it couldn’t happen, but it did and he scored a lot of goals from inside the area. For me, seeing him up close was an amazing thing.”

What do you expect in Crotone?
“I have a great incentive to go there, I hope to follow in Florenzi’s footsteps, I was strongly advised to choose this place and I hope to have a great year and I hope it’s what I need to return to Roma next year.”

Can Roma win the Scudetto next season?
“I believe that if they get some reinforcements they can, they’re missing very little. They need to make sure there aren’t any major sales.”
