The PSG Italian goalkeeper, who will play his first game Tuesday in C1 under his new colors, finds that his team has learned the lessons of the draw conceded to the first leg against Naples.
"You know San Paolo stadium well: what did you remember before you met him again tomorrow?
Yes, I know him very well. It's a very hot stage, with a complicated atmosphere for the opponent. The team and the fans have a great feeling. For us, it will be important to try to win but it will be very complicated. The Naples I saw in Paris is a team that deserves respect.
Do you feel that a big pressure is weighing on the club on the eve of this important meeting for the rest of the European season?
Yes. It's not a normal game tomorrow. Winning would be a big thing. But the important thing, first, is not to lose because we can win at home against Liverpool and Belgrade.
"If I chose to continue playing at 40, it's for emotions"
You return to Italy a few months after leaving Juventus. Is it a special feeling?
They are always emotions. If I chose to continue to play at forty, it's because football is the only thing that can provide such. I just hope we have a good game tomorrow.
Is Ligue 1 a championship that penalizes PSG in the European Cup?
But I do not know if the adjective "easy" is appropriate. In France, I can just tell you that we see players who have qualities superior to those we can see in Italy, but they seek above all to express them in the offensive field leaving to lose sight of the defensive part. In Italy, that would not happen, it's true. After, in Europe, I find our team much more balanced, much more compact in recent weeks. In fact, after the match against Naples, I saw some changes. And what we saw against Marseille and against Lille has launched us on this good path.
Carlo Ancelotti said he still had so much fun finding you. What do you answer him?
I answer him only me too. Carlo is someone special. He always manages to make his team the second one that we endure after the one we have always supported, wherever he goes. Afterwards, when we talk about Carlo, we always talk about the grown-up, but I want to talk about the very great technician. Just see his record. "
