Modena defender Giovanni Zaro spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport about his record, Serie B and the championship favorites
John Zaro, Defender of Modena, has a special record: in 2023 he didn’t miss a single minute, a total of 3420. La Gazzetta dello Sport he told how he did it.
RECORD – “I didn’t think I was the only one. The good thing is that I have been warned: now that I have set the record, I may even be disqualified.”
HOW DO YOU DO IT – “Luck definitely counts, injuries are just around the corner.” I’ve always been good and hope I can keep it up. I pray, but I’m someone who never misses a workout because I’m trying to ignore the pain and fatigue. And then the trust of those who coach me weighs heavily.”
EXPERIENCES – «At Pro Patria I was at home, I still lived with my parents, I didn’t see football as a job. When I first came to Modena, my responsibilities grew and I started to live it differently.”
THE FAVORITE IN SERIES B – “Parma and Cremonese. They have strong players and lots of options. They are the favorites. My Modena? He plays proactive football, he keeps the ball to develop the game. We play it with everyone.”
