Fiorentina owned Inter loanee and Italian international wingback Cristiano Biraghi, stopped by Italian broadcaster InterTV to share his thoughts going into match day 28 of the Serie A away at Parma at the Stadio Ennio Tardini, with kick-off scheduled for 21.45 CET.
The former Pescara man began by underlining that the most important job tonight was to get back to winning ways, following the poor midweek performance at home against Sassuolo which ended in a 3-3 draw.
“We hope to be able to start by scoring many goals but above all winning the match after the draw against Sassuolo.
“There hasn’t been a lot of time to work on the pitch but it is a positive thing that we return immediately to the pitch after a match that didn’t go the way we wanted it to. Today we can get back to winning ways without looking at what anyone else is doing.”
In conclusion Biraghi warned that the Nerazzurri are weary of the counter attacking threat that Parma pose and that they need to remain focused for the entire match.
“We are aware of their characteristics, we saw them already in the reverse fixture at the San Siro. We have to pay attention, we have prepared well for this match.”
Moments later he stopped by Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, adding that: “We are well aware that today we have to do what we failed to in the previous match.
“It is normal that continuity is important for a player, but today what is important is that the team wins so we get back on the right track.”
Cristiano Biraghi came up the youth ranks at Inter making his Nerazzurri first team debut as a substitute in the Champions League in November 2010 against Twente, replacing Goran Pandev.
Biraghi was sold to Pescara in July 2016 and subsequently to Fiorentina the following summer 2017. He rejoined Inter on loan last summer and has since his return featured 27 times across all competitions scoring two goals in the process.
