ITALIAN SUPERCUP MALE 2020: Interview with the referee Antonio Talarico

Sunday – 11 October – the Italian Men’s Super Cup will be played in Granozzo with Monticello (NO): we made some commands Antonio Talarico, appointed to referee the match between Ticinia Novara and Ispra C5.


Will you come if I sat down for Sunday’s game? Referee a final and a great responsibility, do you feel the weight?
I feel good and soon enough. I try to live the game with complete peace of mind. I am now 10
years of experience, I think I am up to it. Of course, I feel the responsibility, the weight is there and you need the right concentration. We referees also pose and we must give the best of ourselves. Personally I am happy to be able to say that this is the final score of the final and that I saw the ballot with Other Colleagues “won”. I will do my best.


You live near Novara, is it exciting to judge the finale in this city?
Yes, I looked happy and excited. The structure is beautiful and offers a grand finale.


In your opinion, what will the festive atmosphere be like due to the Covid 19 health emergency?
The virus is undoubtedly a problem. I don’t know how much audience there will be, people are a bit worried and prefer to stay at home. I think it communicates that I will give a return after hearing the initial whistle, if they don’t give a great show. Being filmed by Legnano Web Tv presents a great thing to create the great atmosphere!
