APPIANO GENTILE – "I expect a great year." This is what Andrea Ranocchia, guest on Inter Channel‘s Prima Serata, said to host Roberto Scarpini.
"We are a new team in every area of the pitch, we definitely need a bit of time to get used to playing with one another. But I’m sure we’re going to be more consistent moving forward. I really expect a great season," added Ranocchia, who also spoke of how he’s "got bigger, because last season I was able to spend a lot of time in the gym. Not playing much last season meant I was able to work out a lot."
Andrea is ready to put last season behind him, in fact, he’s nearly done so already: "It almost seemed like in one bad season I’d managed to undo all the good work I’d put in over previous years, but I’ve started this season well and I’m enjoying my football. I hope to continue in this vein, and I’m convinced I will do."
The fans were very keen to know Andrea’s opinion on the best centre back he’s ever played alongside: "At international level, the centre-halves for the Azzurri are class. Here at Inter I’d say Matrix and Samuel. Wally is still one of the best in the world."
