(ANSA) – FLORENCE, JUL 15 – “It’s true, there were other teams who were interested, but for me the right place was Florence.

I am very happy to be here, it was important to return to a special place. I wanted a very important challenge and I think Florence was the right place both technically and mentally. I didn’t want any shirt to wear: I’m going back to where I played in purple just a little more than a child. “So the new Fiorentina goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini, in the Viola’s summer retreat in Moena (Trento). For Gollini, who will play with the shirt number 95, the one at Fiorentina is a return after a season in the Viola youth teams.

“Coming back has a certain effect on me, I only spent a year here, but that’s what helped me to make all the subsequent steps – said Gollini -. The year I did here was very formative, I was very well and not randomly I’m back! “.

Then, again: “Fiorentina are a strong team, with a great management and last year they did very well. The fact of having been here as a child and having lived in the square has had an impact, then we aspire more and more but surely I would do everything I did “.

He returns to Florence after years at Atalanta: “My farewell to Atalanta was not a technical choice but personal reasons with a person. What I did I proved it on the pitch, I had a lot of experience in Bergamo and I can only be grateful to Atalanta – underlined the goalkeeper – I’ve been in Europe for five years, not a year in which I played less to make a difference. ” Tottenham? “In the Premier League I had a fantastic experience. Sometimes even not playing, if you take it constructively, makes you grow. The Premier League is a very difficult, more physical championship, it has given me a lot.” (HANDLE).
