“Penalty taker? I’m ready.” See Arthur again on the eve of the Conference League final


On the eve of the match against Olympiacos in Athens, valid for the Conference League final, the Fiorentina midfielder, Arthur Melo, spoke about how the Viola are preparing for the match, with the aim of bringing the trophy to Florence to take revenge after last year’s defeat against West Ham. Watch the video again with the words of the Brazilian: “”I feel good in this final part of the season, I hope to score tomorrow too. The match is difficult, but the important thing is not my possible goal, the important thing is to win.”

How do you experience a final, is it a different match from all the others?
“Everything changes, it’s a different game. We work all season to get to this moment. It will be a dry game, we will have to do our best to win.”

In Cagliari he took the responsibility of taking the decisive penalty in added time. Are you Fiorentina’s penalty taker now?
“We train a lot during the week, there isn’t a player who necessarily has to shoot, there are five or six of us and whoever feels like it goes and shoots. You always have to be ready to kick.”

It will be played in Athens, are you worried about the environment you might find?
“No, many of our fans will also arrive and then there will be our families. It will be a nice atmosphere.”
