KUCKA AFTER PARMA 1-0 GENOA: “WE’RE VERY HAPPY TO HAVE WON AT HOME”

Parma, 9 March 2019 – After scoring his second goal for Parma, Juraj Kucka spoke to the press after it proved decisive in beating Genoa at the Tardini.

“With the goal, it was enough to just hit it well and it went in. These were three very important points for us, especially after the recent period where we only got one draw. Now, we have to think about the next game straight away. It was a very tough game, both sides wanted to win. Desire proved decisive. You don’t go anywhere without it. It’s still not over and we’ve not achieved our goal because we have eleven games left. That’s still quite a lot. We need to stay focused and think about one game at a time. Let’s now think about the Lazio game. 33 points? We’re not counting them. Let’s keep going forward! We’re thinking about getting as many as possible. We’ve finally won again at the Tardini, it was the first time for me. It’s always a nice feeling to play against your old team and Genoa was my first team in Italy. I enjoyed this match. I certainly didn’t expect to start so well on a personal basis because I hadn’t played much for six months before. I must thank Parma for giving me this chance.”
