Bari attacking midfielder Antonio Langella is upbeat about the season ahead in Serie A.

Langella said: "We have prepared well and we want to prove it on the ground. It's also true, however, that at the moment Bari is trying to prove everything that Mr. Ventura has asked us to do.

"Bari will be a close squad, we know what awaits us and we will battle like Empoli. Winning is always good, it can give confidence and that is what we want."
