The Roma full-back writes on social media the day after the rupture of the Achilles tendon: “The blue dream continues”
FROM THE ENVIRONMENT TO MONACO. A deathly silence. The president of the FIGC Gabriele Gravina opens the doors of the blue locker room in the belly of the Munich stadium and discovers the deep sadness of a group that instead of celebrating the entry among the four queens of Europe has only one thought: to stay close to his friend Spinazzola struck once again by bad luck.
The fastest and most brilliant winger at Euro 2020 has stopped and in the next few hours he will be operated on for the Achilles tendon injury: the image of his tears coming out on a stretcher from the field are entering the homes of millions of Italians. «It was emotionally engaging to return to the locker room at the end of the match and see an atmosphere as if we had lost because a teammate was injured. It is one of the moments that I will most remember in my sporting career: there was a dead silence in there and only the desire to share the pain … », says the number one of our football.
Spinazzola is in Rome where he will decide the timing of the surgery and, above all, by whom to have the operation, perhaps in Finland by Professor Orawa the same one to whom David Beckham addressed in the past. To the career of the player, now the Giallorossi, is added a further load of bad luck because Spinazzola has found himself on the ground many times already knowing, however, always getting up. «The blue dream continues, I will come back stronger than before …», his thought. Inside the blue dream, for him, there was a place among the noblest if not the noblest: the European arrived at the final crossings was knowing the strength, and the quality, of a boy who knows how to put the arrow.
His wife Miriam Sette encouraged him with a touching message entrusted to Instagram: «Nothing and no one will lift a smile from your face and you will soon be back on the pitch. We are all proud of you ». In the picture, the couple’s eldest son, Mattia, pointing to his dad on the screen. «How many times have you dreamed, imagined this European … nobody knows. But today the train for you stops here … the famous train driven by you, has stopped. You made us live 20 wonderful and unforgettable days, those who know you know what you are worth and in these days you have shown it to all of Europe », writes Miriam. “Now another battle awaits you, but you have already been through it, you are strong, you will overcome it with your head held high with heart and determination, and the smile, your magnificent smile that despite life is putting you a little too often to hard try … nothing and nobody will ever take it off your face, Never! And soon – he adds – you will be back on the pitch to rejoice with your teammates ».
«The last thing but the most important … you made everyone proud – concludes the wife of the Roma player -, but above all our 3 year old son Mattia is proud and proud of his father from start to finish. I believe that in the face of this there is nothing else to add. After the storm there is always the sun, and we know it well. You are strong my love. Stronger than before. Always with you”.
