In a live interview which was broadcast on Autogol’s Instagram channel, Inter teen sensation Sebastiano Esposito has given an insight in what he has been doing with his free time whilst Italy is in lock down.
“I am doing fine in quarantine. I have been playing a lot of PlayStation. I mostly play Fifa but play Call of Duty if my friends want to,” he began the interview which was broadcast earlier on today.
“I am not crazy about watching series, I like watching movies more but I do like the series based in Naples and on the Camorra. I watched Gomorrah and I liked it.”
He then spoke on what he thought he would become when he was a child.
“As a child I thought about having fun and when I was without the ball I had a hard time. We footballers are in a privileged position because we get to work as what we have always dreamed of.”
Next Esposito spoke on how it felt to be included in the Inter first team for the first time and how it felt to make his debut in the Europa League knockout stages against German giants Eintracht Frankfurt.
“I wasn’t expecting it, I was on my way to represent the youth national team and whilst I was on the train the manager called me to tell me that I had been called up to the first team. I could not believe it.
“Making my debut was a fantastic feeling. I did not expect that either. My first goal in Serie A gave me the greatest feeling I have ever had in my life and I hope to score more.”
He then went on to speak on what it has been like to work under Antonio Conte since the former Italian national team manager took charge of the club this past Summer: “He always wants to win and has us playing at a very high intensity.”
He was then asked if he has any pre-match rituals he follows: “I believe in God, therefore I always pray before I go onto the pitch.”
In conclusion he was asked if Conte has ever gotten mad at him: “I don’t know if there is someone he has never been angry with [laughs].”
