Darmian proved the matchwinner against Cagliari on Sunday.
“We were up against a good team today that defended well from the start. When you're facing a team that closes the spaces, it's always difficult to break the deadlock, but it's a very important victory for our campaign," Darmian told DAZN.
“We all feel part of the group, we all feel important, and we know that we're all going to be ready when called upon, as there's still a long way to go before the end of the season.
“Everyone knows the coach is so passionate, he puts his heart and soul into it, and we are very happy with these fundamental three points.
“This win was an important sign on a psychological level to the chasing pack."
