President Tommaso Lanci: «We are still feeling the blow we took last season. We were convinced that we had set up a competitive team and in fact a lot was in the second round. However, in the key moments of the championship we did not withstand the pressure and we failed. There is no specific person responsible for this debacle. It was a general demerit. I do not want and we must not blame anyone for relegation. We need to think about working our best to return to Serie A2 as soon as possible.

Having signed an international player speaks volumes about how ambitious our goals are. ”
