Both Giorgio Chiellini and Alessandro Florenzi reveal Salvatore Sirigu made Italy players cry on their way to Wembley last night: ‘He had prepared something special..’
Itay won the European Championship for the second time in history, beating England on penalties at Wembley Stadium.
After the game, Chiellini and Florenzi revealed how Salvatore Sirigu had motivated the Azzurri ahead of the Final.
“Sirigu has been one of the key players in the dressing room,” Florenzi said.
“Before the game, he gave each one of us a note written by him, with his thoughts about us. Every note was different,” the former PSG man revealed.
However, that was not the only thing Sirigu had prepared.
“Today, he made us cry,” Chiellini revealed.
“He showed us a video of our relatives before the game and made us cry.”
Sirigu only played one minute in the tournament, replacing Gigio Donnarumma in the stoppages of Italy’s last group stage game against Wales.
Donnarumma, who has been named Player of the Tournament, revealed the Torino goalkeeper had played a key role in helping him prepare for the penalty shootout against Spain in the semifinals.
