About Roberto Baggio
- The angels sing in his legs.

- One games stands out in particular, one against Ancona which we won 5-1. Baggio scored four goals in the first 20 minutes and killed the game off. I don't think I've seen a better performance from any player in any game I've ever played in. For half an hour, he was on fire. As footballers go, he's a genius.
