Falco dreaming of Barca

Playmaker Filippo Falco has revealed he is dreaming of a future at Barcelona, but insists he is "only focusing" on keeping Lecce in Serie A this term.

Pippo Falco gives Fabio Liverani credit for helping his development at the Via del Mare and the 28-year-old has been applauded for his performances this term.

After contributing three goals and three assists in 18 league games, the attacker admits that he still dreams of a move to one of the top clubs in Europe.

“I have improved a lot. I worked hard and I always believed I could reach this level,” he told Tuttomercatoweb. “It is also thanks to the advice from the coach. I must keep developing.

“I want to continue having fun, scoring and assisting. As a child I liked Juventus. But the dream is to play for Barcelona.”

Lecce are preparing for an important game against bottom-placed SPAL this weekend and Falco insists that he is “only focused” on the Giallorossi, despite his personal ambitions.

“It’s the most important game, it can allow us a calmer second half and maybe give SPAL a big blow,” he added. “We want to do well.

“There are three months left of the campaign and I am only focused on keeping Lecce up. I would love to take some big steps, but today I only focus on Lecce."
