“First of all I want to thanks to the Quattro Mori club for all the support they have give to me. I want also to congratulate the Budaorsi team for the second place, they have done a good job. I am very proud of us, we couldn't play better than this the second leg of the final. I was very nervous before the match but when I started my match I forgot about everything and I was just focusing on what I have to and to win. I played perfect today, so I am very proud of this final,” stated PLAIAN.

Quattro Mori President Mario GABBA said: “We have achieved a fantastic goal, no Italian team had previously won this event. It is a great satisfaction for our club and also for the Federation. Last year we had already faced Budaörsi in the quarter-finals and beat them twice 3-1, but this win is more important, because allowed us to raise the Cup. After reaching those semi-finals, I believed that this season we could go to the end and the girls and Stefano were wonderful”.

Coach Stefano CURCIO explains : “I am very proud of all of them. In the international field it was a season over the top, even in Champions League, because we won at the home against Berlin Eastside, the first in the European ranking. This Europe Cup is really a dream come true”.
