Gabriele Zappa was a great protagonist at the Unipol Domus: he came on at the start of the second half and found his first goal in Serie A, a heavy goal that gave Cagliari their third consecutive victory: "I'm very happy for the three points, for the first goal in Serie A: it was a unique emotion, it's what I've always dreamed of as a child. I dedicate it to my family, especially my girlfriend Sara and my brother Fabio. Sara herself told me yesterday that I would score: so even when I missed the first time in front of the goalkeeper, the next time I believed it".
"I would like to congratulate the whole team, we deserved this victory: I would like to mention Simone Scuffet among my teammates, who saved the result with a great intervention in the dying minutes. In general we were compact and we suffered little, it was a good performance'.
ON THE RIGHT PATH
"The match against Frosinone gave us a big boost on a mental level: commitment and work were never lacking, now we are reaping what unfortunately had not come before. We must continue in this way, after a difficult start we are only at the beginning of our journey towards our goal'.
THE COACH'S QUALITIES
"Serie A is tough, we all have to give 110% otherwise it's not enough. The coach had asked us not to concede goals, we didn't succeed. We're sorry, we have to improve. We rely on him 100%, since he arrived at Cagliari he has never done anything wrong. Everything he says comes true. He's teaching me a lot, I thank him. We have to keep listening to him and that's how we'll save ourselves'.
THE TWELFTH MAN
"Our fans once again proved to be an extra weapon today: the stadium was sold-out, when our fans push us like that they are dragging, they really become the twelfth man on the pitch'.
Him again, Nicolas Viola again: third goal of the season, once again decisive as a substitute. These are his words at the end of the match.
"We are very happy, we gave continuity to the match against Frosinone by playing a great match. Last Sunday's match can be a turning point, now we have other important engagements ahead of us. We started with some difficulties, you can see the strength of the group'.
GIVING OUR BEST
"Our secret is to always give your best when you have minutes available. I'm happy with what I'm doing, I want to play and I show it in training. The coach is noticing this, I will continue to give my best as always'.
MATCH AFTER MATCH
"The team has made a leap in quality, but we think game after game, strong in the experience we gained last year and the difficult start to the season'.
