Barella was interviewed by DAZN on the eve of Torino-Inter. The midfielder, who arrived from Cagliari in the summer and decisive before stopping with Verona, talks about his career and how he is entering the Nerazzurri.
OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED – Nicolò Barella starts talking about his goals as a child: «Surely they were dreams, which then gradually I understood that they could be objective. That is to become a footballer, to debut in Serie A with the Cagliari shirt and play a hundred games, one day to wear the captain's armband. Then there was also playing in a great team, in one of the top teams in the world, I think I got there now. I must have been twelve, maybe fifteen. The Nazionale perhaps was there, but I still didn't think so big. Before being a job it is a passion, infected by my father and handed down by the family. I will say (to the daughters) that it will be difficult, then when it comes true your dream is the most beautiful job in the world. The more challenging it is, the more beautiful it will be to move forward " .
PREFERENCES – Barella talks about what he likes most in football: «Surely the excitement of entering a stadium, first in Cagliari and now at San Siro, to feel the affection of the people and the audience that sings your name that is the what is more beautiful than football for me. After the goal I did (at Verona , ed) I liked it, but when I hear the roar I recover the ball I like it. The slip will always remain in my heart: you must always keep your arm resting when you slide, to be ready to get up, and put the right wickedness into it. Without taking admonitions (laughs, ed) . How do you get into a slip? I always think of doing it with the outside leg to reach the ball, always with the tip. If you take the opponent this is football, he will understand (smiles, ed).
LIBERATION – Barella returns to the feat of two weeks ago in Inter-Verona : "It was a goal I had been waiting for a long time, because the goal in the Champions League (at Slavia Praga , ed) I could not cheer as I wanted, because it was a difficult game for us. It was an important but not very important goal, but this was very important so I think it was a liberation. I was waiting for it to arrive, not because of personal joy but because I wanted to give the team as much as possible. The words of Antonio Conte ? Maybe some bad word started, but it was with a smile. I don't remember, I was cheering with my companions and I greeted Lautaro Martinez first. He wanted to give me the jacket because I was without a shirt, but it was a happy moment » .
GROWTH – Barella is asked if it is more instinct or rationality: «Surely there is a lot of instinct, but the coach and his companions help you for so many days. They have great experience, however of champions, you try to learn certain things from them too. I'm still improving. I played in Cagliari, but it was my home and everyone loved me. It was an important step for me to leave home and get away from it all. At the beginning it was no longer difficult but more complicated, they are all champions and they wanted to earn their place. Then I am happy that, little by little, I have shown what I am worth " .
ADDIO – Barella returns on his transfer away from Cagliari , with some fans who have not spared criticism: «There have been so many, I'm honest. Because anyway I had a good relationship with them, still with someone there is a good relationship. Maybe some fans were upset because I didn't show up, but this is football and the transfer market. Things are always done with a company, with a middle player, with prosecutors and with other companies, I could not expose myself or speak. I refused proposals where I probably would have earned even more, but people don't know this. I don't care . "
THE PRESENT – Barella closes talking about his new reality: «I know how I did it and why I came to Inter. Because? I wanted to grow, it's an important company, there's a coach I think among the strongest in the world that can make me grow. There are champions, we want to build something important. Surely now is not the time to look at the standings, we just have to continue our roadmap, as the coach asks us, and do even better. Then we will see in the end if the ranking was true or it was just the beginning. Two new goals? I wrote two. One in the short term, hopefully (to win the Scudetto with Inter, ed) , and one in the long term (to win the World Cup , ed) ».
