Empoli attacking midfielder, Tommaso Baldanzi, has named scoring against Inter Milan at San Siro as his favourite goal so far. In an interview with Italian television programme TG1, Baldanzi looked back on the moment, stating in a clear remembrance, “Certainly, the goal of my heart is the one I scored against Inter at San Siro. I will remember it forever.”
Seen as a shining gem in the Empoli line-up, Baldanzi is being closely watched by several Serie A clubs, and his playful and creative style of play makes him a favourite amongst fans and teammates alike. He further acknowledged his eccentricity and jovial character during the interview, indirectly implying, “I am very ebullient and extremely amusing. I know how to fit well within a group.”
Confronted with high expectations upon him, Baldanzi maintains a calm demeanour, insisting it is no burden. “I don’t see [the expectations] as a weight,” the Empoli midfielder said. “I think it’s a beautiful thing that people expect this from me.”
Baldanzi is committed to improving his game and working hard to maintain his form to merit such attention. His “I strive to always try to improve myself and work as much as possible to deserve this attention” attitude certainly seems to be paying dividends as he continues to be a subject of interest to numerous Serie A clubs.
