Her son calls her “daddy” and the accent is clear. But do you live in Tuscany or Milan?

“I am a small fruit merchant. Among other things, sometimes I have to get up at two in the morning, and this happened on Tuesday, the day of the match. At one in the afternoon, my son and I left to go to Milan, and at six in the evening we stopped before riding The bus. “In fact, I went to sleep 27 hours later without being able to rest much.”

If this isn't love…

“In this life we ​​need emotions: Inter cannot be to blame.”

Why did Arnautovic's goal affect you so much?

So joy, but also sympathy towards the footballer?

Did you know that you are now an example of real, healthy and romantic cheerfulness?

Do you often feel passionate about Inter?

“That's it. Anyone who wears an Inter shirt is the best in the world. Look at those who are there now, those who left did not understand where they were.”

In your opinion, does Inter transmit something special that arouses emotion, as in your case? Or are all teams capable of eliciting reactions like this?

“No, it's just Inter. Liverpool comes to me as a comparison. But in Italy I don't see a possible comparison: we're crazy, we haven't won and we haven't lost until the referee blows the final whistle. We fans have seen a lot.” :We are capable of doing anything. For us, May 5 is 2002 and 2010: opposites together. Before reaching the finish line, nothing can be said.

Now the team must complete the mission, and qualify for Madrid.
