A meeting with the media in the Unipol Domus press room for Andrea Petagna, one of the latest arrivals in the last days of the summer football transfer market. The forward, who has already made his debut in Bologna, took stock of the team's momentum and analyzed aspects related to his arrival in Sardinia.
DESIRE TO PLAY
"I'm fine, I had a problem in Bologna but there is no injury so I continued to work, I don't know yet if I can be available against Udinese. I like to put myself at the service of the group, there is a good mix of experience and youth, led by a real legend like coach Ranieri. We had a difficult start, but we must not get down. The team is well organized and has important values, the calendar has not been kind, but every day we improve and chase our goal."
"He wanted me strongly, a phone call from him was enough to convince me definitely: he wanted people who fight, who love to fight, I gave full availability. My goal is to get salvation with Cagliari, score more goals than last year and give everything for these colors. Me away from Monza? There were no longer the conditions to continue, I left many friends and I have great respect for everyone, from the fans to former teammates. Not forgetting Adriano Galliani who has been a second father to me since he brought me to Milan when I was 13 years old."
HIGH LEVEL FORWARDS
"Here I can improve, playing with Lapadula and Pavoletti is a privilege, I think we can coexist on a technical and tactical level, I have no problem adapting with anyone, like Lapadula, Pavoletti and also a very interesting young man like Luvumbo. For me Cagliari is an important choice, I hope to play a significant role and maybe taste again the joy of the National team."
"When I came here as an opponent it was always beautiful and challenging, and difficult because the fans push their team so much. So many passionate fans who will only help us get our goal."
