Turin, Lukic: “I’m not afraid to take penalties”
Sasa Lukic, new captain of Torino, gave an interview to La Gazzetta dello Sport, where he spoke on various topics including the captain’s armband and responsibility for taking penalties. Here are the words of the Granata midfielder:
On the captain’s armband:
“Captain? I got into this role following a basic principle: I have to help everyone, but at the same time all my teammates have to help me. The first thanks go to the club and the coach for their trust. Very nice sensations, because at Toro I feel at home. Being the captain is a great honor, a pride and a great responsibility. I feel ready, I have no doubts about this: I will continue to be an example as I have been so far, even more so. Now the responsibilities increase but we will overcome them by helping us all together. I will not be more important than my team mates just because I have the armband, we all have to be captains to help us ”.
“Defensive midfielder or attacking midfielder? I have to do what Juric asks of me. I showed everyone that I can play anywhere, against Roma I also played central defender… Having played in many roles gives me an advantage, and it is important that the coach can count on me for any eventuality. I like to play more as a halfback in a two-player line, where my best qualities emerge ”.
“When I learned that there was a possibility that Radonjic was coming, I immediately spoke to him and told him all about the Bull. From the first phone call, he told me that he only wanted Taurus. Nemanja is a good boy, we played together from an early age: he will have to adapt, as soon as possible, to Italian football by listening to the coach. He has enormous potential, now he has to express it. I’m sure he will do well because he has everything to do it. And then don’t worry, I’m here ”.
