Crotone, Tumminello hit… the thirteenth


By John

Taking advantage of a sensational naivety of the Juventus goalkeeper Stabia Esposito, Marco Tumminello he was good and clever in putting the equalizer into the net. His thirteenth league goalfifteenth of the season, also considering the two goals scored in the Cup, giving the team a precious point.

«We achieved an important draw against the strongest team in the championship – declares the rossoblù striker Tumminello – we played a game of sacrifice, especially after we were down to ten men, on a difficult pitch, and after going behind. But we believed in it, we were united and as a team we brought home a fundamental point.”

But now it's time to think about the last home match in the championship, which on Sunday will see Monopoli fighting to avoid the playouts at the “Scida”. «We knew it was an important match for us – underlines the Pythagorean number 93 – especially after Brindisi, which was a match point for us. In Castellammare we took a small step forward, but we must not be satisfied. We must be ready for Sunday's match against Monopoli to necessarily bring home the three points. The captain's armband? It's always an honor, especially in such a historic club.”
Despite Crotone's disastrous return round, Tumminello has so far achieved a good personal haul, having scored 15 goals of the season, ending up in the sights of Trapani of the ambitious president Antonini. «On a personal level, 15 goals of the season are very important, also because they instill confidence in both me and the team – concludes the rossoblù striker – with Guido (Gomez, ed.) we have continued this series of consecutive goals which gives morale to everyone but we must look forward and do more and more.”
