National, Toloi: “I feel Italian, I have Venetian origins” – Sport

FLORENCE. “I never had any doubts as soon as there was the possibility of wearing the blue shirt, my ancestors are from Treviso and I feel Italian”.

Thus Rafael Toloi one of the new faces of the national team in this first meeting of 2021. “Brazil never looked for me and in any case, even before coming to play in Italy in 2009 I had moved to have citizenship, it’s not something now – explained the Atalanta captain – The only news is that only two months ago I had the approval from Fifa and my family was also happy “.

Then the inevitable thanks to Gasperini: “If I play in this way in defense it is thanks to him. And I am very happy to be part of a serious and healthy club like Atalanta which has everything to become even stronger”.
