On October 16, 2020, the Fiorentina Club officially held a press conference on the joining of Italian defender Barreca. Barreca said frankly that he wanted to prove his worth and hoped that one day he could join the Italian national team.
"The club has a long history and is very well-known. As soon as I heard that Florence was interested in me, I immediately said it was good. I am very happy to come and I am also grateful to other clubs that like me."
"Thanks to Chairman Comiso, to the manager and Antonioni for their trust. I will use performance to repay my trust. Returning to Serie A after a lap abroad is also a fresh start. I am now very motivated and want to perform well. "
"He is very strong and worthy of the name of the international. All I have to do is train well, go all out, and be ready to respond to the needs of the coach."
"We met in Genoa and he immediately impressed me. Kwame is very young and I think he has fully recovered. He can still make progress and achieve great achievements!"
"Everything was fine at first, then ups and downs, coaches changed and changed, it was a mess. Overall it was a good experience. It wasn't very smooth, but I grew up anyway."
"I still care about Turin. I grew up there and hoped to work for Turin for a long time. I couldn't do it for various reasons. But there is no regret, I am honored to have it.
"There are some differences, it is not easy to keep up with the rhythm. The pace is especially fast in the UK. So these experiences have allowed me to grow in all aspects."
"The goal I set for myself is to play as many games as possible, fight for more opportunities, and prove my worth. I hope that one day I can enter the national team. People may have forgotten my potential, and I hope to show it again through hard work. "
"There is no particular reason..."
"Jovititch advised me to come to Florence. He told me it was a great platform."
