The Bari defender played regularly during the warm-up friendlies, but with Giorgio Chiellini‚Äôs recovery from injury was pushed on to the bench.
‚ÄúThere is great disappointment, not so much because I didn‚Äôt play as the fact this adventure was over all too quickly,‚ÄĚ he said as the squad flew back to Italy.
‚ÄúI was at the disposal of the Coach and he thought other decisions were the right ones to take. Of course I have absolutely nothing to say about that.
‚ÄúUnfortunately this World Cup went badly both on a personal level and for the team, above all.
‚ÄúNow I will go home for a couple of days before setting off on vacation. After such a tough year I need a break to recharge the batteries so I can be ready for the new season.‚ÄĚ
