Last year I returned to the environments where I lived for a year and a half, not only in sports but also in accommodation. Honestly now it’s completely passed me – continues Bonatti -: I have wonderful memories, I have been well, I have found people who have been close to me with whom I have an excellent relationship and they still call me with pleasure. But we know what our goal is, we want to go through, we will not underestimate the opponent even if he is in Primavera 2 since he eliminated a Primavera 1 team like Lecce. We will be concentrated ».
