"He gives us the freedom to go out on the field and express ourselves, this is why we're giving our best.

"I've had a lot of Coaches in my career, and Inzaghi reminds me a little of Ancelotti, who coached me at Chelsea.

"He also gave us the freedom to express ourselves on the field, and that's what Pippo does. I think it's the right way to do things."
