Côte d’Ivoire, how does it feel to join the national team on the eve of such a big game?
Indescribable. I feel great. These guys are great, the training courses are great, and the best part is that the atmosphere in the team is great. We know who the Spaniard is and how strong the Spaniard is, but we know that we also have qualities, and I believe there can be anything in a game. I know the Spaniards want gold medals, but we were also asked something, we want victory and semi-finals.
Are you talking to Igor Bišćan? Did he tell you what he expected of Fury?
We did not talk about the special features of football. We talked more about life. We met and he let me know that he was counting on me and the fact that I was invited is really great. Thank you for your hard work throughout your life.
Verona is the favorite team in Serie A. It was particularly noticeable in the final round against Naples. After the game, the reporter angered Yulić to play for Juventus. Are there tensions between players on the court after the game?
Not at all. We went there to play for ourselves and ended a great season. We came to Naples to play for our fans, not for others. We played very well in the game. Naples played an important role in the game. I would even say that they must be more satisfied than us in the 1:1 game. But for us, this is also good. As for the Napoli players, they felt sad and disappointed, but there was no pain. They know that we are playing for ourselves, this is a sport.
When Juric was selected as the world’s 50 best coaches, he has recently gained great recognition. What kind of person is Ivan Juric?
He deserves it. On the eve of the season, everyone was convinced that we would quit the league, and he did a miracle. Over the years, he has proven that not everything is money. It is amazing that he focuses on football. The first one came to the camp and the last one left. The players like him because he shows that he believes in them and will always stand by their side, looking at their backs. It is an honor to play for such a coach.
It is said that his departure from Turin is a foregone conclusion, and Igor Tudor is about to come to Verona. Do you know more about this?
To be honest, I know as much as everyone else. I read something about it, but before the official release, I think Ivan Jurić is still the coach of Verona.
What is your plan?
I am currently a Verona player. What’s next, I don’t know, and I won’t care about it now. The national team is now the most important to me. We will sit down later and arrange everything.
