Pavoletti: 'Hope Cagliari fans are proud'

Leonardo Pavoletti is glad Cagliari managed to turn the Parma game around and “deserved the win. I hope the fans are proud of us.”

Juraj Kucka’s header had given Parma the lead at the Sardegna Arena, but a late pair of Pavoletti goals secured a 2-1 result.

“It wasn’t easy, as Parma are a great side and very dangerous on the counter,” the striker told Sky Sport Italia.

“We did well to stay in there, get the game back on track and it’s wonderful after so many slaps in the face that we managed to complete a comeback too.

“We struggled for a few minutes after conceding the goal, but other than that we fought hard for the entire match. We wanted this win, we worked hard for it and we deserved it.

“I work hard for this team and give my all to score goals. We are a good team and probably haven’t got as many points as we deserved, but I hope the Cagliari fans are proud of us tonight.”
