ANTONIO CONTE'S WORDS
“I regret to say that playing without the fans’ support is not an enjoyable experience. One forgets how much you work and sweat just to entertain the fans who come to watch. In the last Derby, the support of our fans was essential for our comeback. But in this instance, we have no choice but to get on with it and give it our best for the colours of our Club.”
