Aquilani found his first Serie A hat-trick â€śsatisfying,â€ť but was impressed by Genoa in a 3-3 draw.
â€śIt is satisfying to get a hat-trick, but a shame about the result because we really wanted the result. Thatâ€™s football,â€ť the Fiorentina midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śThis was my first hat-trick, so Iâ€™m taking the ball home.â€ť
The draw is a missed opportunity, as the Viola wouldâ€™ve moved to within a point of third place with a victory this evening.
â€śIt was important to win today and go within a point of Napoli, but in Serie A all the teams are very difficult to beat. I donâ€™t know if we have something more than Napoli, but we want to catch them and if possible overtake them.
â€śWe have to take it day by day, in my view we are having a strong season and hopefully weâ€™ll win the next one.â€ť
