“We are very pleased to have been victorious against such high-level opponents in the space of just a week. Paradoxically, at the close of a busy week, we gave a performance that was the best. That’s why I want the focus of attention to be on the boys — when I had to yell at them, I never pulled back, but today they deserve only the highest praise. We played a good game, in its entirety, we were focused and we definitely put the pressure on Venice, who is much more of a team than we are.”
