Pippo: ‘Dedicated to Bologna fans’

Pippo Inzaghi dedicated the victory over Roma to Bologna fans who cheered them on throughout their crisis. “I didn’t expect it.”

The Rossoblu had one point and not a single goal from their opening four Serie A rounds, yet ultras flocked to the training ground to encourage them on Saturday and were out in numbers at the Stadio Dall’Ara for today’s 2-0 victory.

“The fans have been simply extraordinary,” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“I’ve found an atmosphere that I frankly didn’t expect. Even when we had such bad results, the fans would stop be in the street and thank me. I didn’t know what I’d done to warrant such affection, so this victory is dedicated to them.

“We put in the perfect performance and the lads showed a lot of quality. It was also such a revamp, as Arturo Calabresi was making his Serie A debut, while it was Adam Nagy’s first start of the season.

“It’s a win that makes me proud, but I know we’ve got to have the same attitude against Juventus on Wednesday.”
