"Not everyone can be sharing the locker room with champions like Zamorano, Zanetti and Ronaldo, they were real friends. And I do not forget Bergomi, he and Pagliuca helped me to get in. Simoni An incredible man I worked with many good career coaches, but nobody is like him. "

He was also asked about the influence of Massimo Moratti and lauded him. He said: "Daddy Massimo, what a man, he has such a big heart.
