Federico Balzaretti: “I am doing much better…”

Federico Balzaretti was interviewed for Sunday’s edition of AS Roma Match Program, here are his words:

How are you?
Better, much better. A few days ago I returned to training with the group and did all of the training with my teammates.

What do you expect now?
I don’t expect anything. I’m enjoying the moment, everything, until the end. A few months ago, I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to return and train at 100%.

What did you miss the most?
I missed the field. Being a part of the dressing room every day and returning to feel part of the group.

Who was close to you during this period?
So many people. My teammates and the club never left me on my own. And then above all, my family.

And now?
The uphill climb is not over, I’m keeping my feet on the ground, I’m enjoying the moment and continue to work with the goal of returning to the field. I will continue to support my teammates from the stands.
