Bari; after salvation, the team needs to be refounded

We’ve suffered a lot and tonight we have to give everything. We shouldn’t have any regrets.” , we just have to think about leaving the field in the 95th minute after having given everything we have”, concluded Di Cesare, receiving the appreciation of his teammates.
