22 July 2021

Riccardo Sottil pledged to repay the faith shown in him by Fiorentina as he appeared at a press conference during the club’s Moena training camp on Thursday.

Check out what the 22-year-old Italian had to say below…

On the club’s faith in him…

“I’m honoured and I’ll do everything I can to repay them on the pitch. Less talking, more doing.”

On his understanding with Dusan Vlahovic…

“I’ve known Dusan for years now. We have a great relationship and that helps us on the pitch too. We get on well and we’ll give our all.”

On his development…

“I’m a young player and I learn more every season – that was the case at Cagliari last year too. We’re enjoying our time here at the training camp. There’s a great relationship between the squad and the new coach, which helps.”

On his aims...

“I want to give the coach a headache every time I train.”

On the comparisons with Federico Chiesa…

“I don’t worry about it. Fede is a top player, but I have different attributes.”

On the dressing room…

“There’s a really positive atmosphere here.”

On Franck Ribery…

“He’s a great person as well as being a top player. It would be amazing to wear his No.7 jersey.”
