Stefano Mengozzi (CMC Ravenna): “Our opponents have led from start to finish. We were forced to chase the score constantly, and that made our task very complicated. Monza is a complete team, they managed to play an excellent game even without Conte and Shumov”.
Sean Rooney (Acqua Paradiso Monza Brianza): “It was important to win 3-0, all the more so given that we’re off to Romania tomorrow for the Cev Cup. We worked and trained hard to get this result and we did it. Now our minds are already set on our European commitment, we know we have to stay focused”.
