Atalanta, Scalvini’s remarks

“I am honest, I did not expect a season like this, it was above expectations. I was thinking of staying at Primavera and joining the first team from time to time, but instead I found a lot of space.”

“I live things step by step. I don’t know what to expect from the next tournament, I am thinking about the present and building a future for myself. Now this is the most important thing for me.”

“In terms of the team’s goals, it’s great to be in the Europa League quarter-finals. It’s a tough competition. In the next two matches we’ll face RB Leipzig. I follow the Bundesliga a lot and they are a team I know well. I think we can qualify, they have many things in common with Bayer Leverkusen.” Which we have already removed. If we can beat the Germans, there will still be a semi-final match. We had one between Braga and Rangers, and on top of all that, the Scots would be a team to be treated with caution. They are very cunning.”
