“For me and my dad it is an important evening, I realized a dream that I had since I was little, but I weigh this defeat we did not deserve, we are a big group, even in the week we train with determination and we trust ourselves. I’m sure that with Chievo we will make a big game,” said Pellegri.
“I did not abandon school, this year I’ll join a private one to help me. I train in the morning.
“My Dad has followed me in football since childhood and it’s nice he has been thrilled for me. Since I started playing he’s always been following me in training in the cold and in the rain.
“My idol is (Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the strongest striker in the world.”
