"Lazio in the last six or seven games they recovered seven points, eight points and we lost the title in the last game against Perugia. I was captain of the team. I remember after this game I must go in the Europe with the national team.
"I didn't sleep for six days because it was a shock for me to lose the title. In another situation I won the title to recover against Inter eight points. We won the last game against Udinese and Inter lost the game against Lazio.
"The day after [everyone thought] we lost the title. I'm not surprised. I have experienced this. When I continue to repeat there are 13 games, there are 39 points. There is a long time before we can say we won the title.
"We must be focused, we must go step by step. Now I'm sure to win the title we must get 32 points [to be mathematically safe]."
