Bologna fullback Aaron Hickey: Serie A? Sensational, fantastic, the most beautiful

Bologna fullback Aaron Hickey is thrilled with his first months in Italy.

The Scotland international signed for Bologna over the summer from Hearts.

Hickey told Gazzetta dello Sport: "For me, Serie A is like having landed on the moon. Sensational, fantastic, the most beautiful tournament in the world. In Serie A, if the games last 97 minutes, you have to stay focused for 97 minutes. There is nothing else. Tactics is something that must always be learned, it is a great commitment."

Hickey and Bologna will face Inter Milan tomorrow.

He added: "San Siro is the Colosseum of football, I can't wait to experience it. Inter? I really like (Romelu) Lukaku and (Christian) Eriksen. To be able to achieve a result you have to stay calm and believe in your teammates."
