Rui Patricio on key factor to winning the game


After a spectacular man-of-the-match performance with three crucial saves in the second half to deny Sassuolo the lead, Rui Patricio spoke to DAZN and shared his thoughts on the team’s high spirits.

“I don’t like talking about individual feats, I prefer to emphasize the team’s performance.”

“We played with a mentality and a spirit of sacrifice. We must continue on this path, believe that we can win all the games, do as we did today and always seek the strength to score at any time.”

When asked whether he already knew some Italian, the Portuguese international added:

“It is easier to understand it than to speak it, but I hope to start speaking it and integrate as soon as possible with the rest of the team. (In Italian) It’s not easy!”
