The following quotes are from Darmian, Eriksen, Sensi, Pinamonti, de Vrij, Skriniar, Sensi, Young, Kolarov and Padelli, exclusively released in the film of the season: You can find them in the video at the bottom of the article.
DARMIAN: "WORK AND SACRIFICE, WE NEVER GAVE UP"
“When you can help the team and score goals, that's great, especially when they are crucial to getting the victory. I’ve always tried to be ready, to make myself available to the coach, to the team and to give my contribution. I’m happy to have scored important goals but the fundamental thing is that the team has achieved such a hard and difficult objective with so much work and sacrifice. Until it was mathematically certain, we never gave up an inch and we always tried to bring home as many points as possible”.
ERIKSEN: "THE GOAL IN THE CUP AGAINST AC MILAN WAS A SPECIAL MOMENT"
"I’ve scored a few goals from a free-kick in my career, but I was certainly very happy about that (the free-kick against AC Milan), as well as for the moment: Scoring in the last few minutes of a Cup game to qualify was special. I think that has changed the perception of me from the outside since then, I think it has shown that I’m a player you can count on”.
SENSI: "EXTRAORDINARY FANS, WE CAN’T WAIT TO HAVE THEM ALL BACK IN THE STADIUM"
“We can say that this year we have been the best after nine years of Juventus domination and this is the result of all the great work we have done. The fans are fundamental for us, all of us can say that we have missed them a lot and that we can’t wait for them to come back. After all this time without them, hearing their chants again and the inspiration that they've always shown us will be fantastic”.
DE VRIJ: "A GREAT UNDERSTANDING WITH SKRINIAR, IT’S A PLEASURE TO GROW TOGETHER"
“Our defensive gameplan starts with the attackers and our offensive plan starts with the goalkeeper, we always say this because that’s how we work and because we are united. Skriniar has made important steps forward as a player, he has improved a lot and this year he has been a rock! He stops everything, he’s very strong in one-on-ones, he has lots of strength, you can't get past him. For us it’s a pleasure to work together, to grow together, and now that we know each other better, we talk a lot on the pitch, and we have improved a lot. He has scored important goals for us like against Atalanta, it was a very crucial goal and it led us to victory. Behind this Scudetto there is a lot of work and sacrifices, so they are unique emotions”.
PINAMONTI: "THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HURT GAVE US THE ENERGY TO CARRY ON"
“The moment that changed our season was the exit from the Champions League which hurt us a lot. We love each other, we did a great job this year, so the group has come together more and more to get to victory”.
SKRINIAR: "THE BIG MATCHES THAT WE WON GAVE US CONFIDENCE"
“The big matches we won against Juventus, AC Milan, and Atalanta gave us confidence. Those were the moments in which we decided the season. We’ve always been united, this has been fundamental, I’m proud of this team, we are a great group”.
KOLAROV: "THE DIFFERENCE IS MADE BY MEN"
“To win you definitely need quality, but the difference is made by men. The season has been long, but I think that the awareness of how really strong we were came with the win over Juventus. They were the team to beat and deservedly did it in the match in which we crushed them. I think after that game something clicked inside us, then it was a matter of time to win the Scudetto”.
YOUNG: " PROUDNESS THAT’S HARD TO DESCRIBE"
“I'm not sure if there is a particular Scudetto match, maybe against Sassuolo. I'm incredibly proud, I can't explain it, it's hard to describe, I'm proud of myself, the team, the staff, and everyone who works for the Club. From the day I arrived they were fantastic with me, and we had the goal of winning one day, we did it and it's incredible”.
PADELLI: "A GREAT FAMILY"
"It would have been wonderful to celebrate with all the fans at the stadium, but they still made us feel their warmth. Before each match, a player talks and says something to the whole team and I said that this year we’ve shown that we really are such a great family, especially in such a complicated year. It's something for us all to be proud of".
