Emiliano Rigoni: “I have another chance”
The Argentinian midfielder has returned to the club from Atalanta and spoke to us about his plans for the season.
I'm happy to return here. I understand that this is another chance for me and I hope I can use it.
Tell us about the last six months in Atalanta, have you added to your game?
Serie A is a fairly strong league. I feel that I have developed both technical and physical. There is a slightly different game system, I played at a slightly different position compared to Zenit. I feel like a more valuable football player compared to the first zenith stage.
What are your hopes for the UEFA Europa League?
We are always aiming for the highest goals. Zenit are a strong team that wants to succeed in Europe. We should think like winners and not lower the bar. We have a wonderful and high-quality squad. Overall, the Europa League is one of the most important tournaments this season for us.
You're playing Fenerbahce next, what do you know about this team?
I know this team and they are one of the strongest in Turkey. We are waiting for a tough game. Fenerbahce have extensive international experience and regularly play in Europe. We will start preparing for this match right now and be ready.
