“It was a great joy for me to see him again on the field,” Feix told Corriere dello Sport as quoted by Roma Press.
“I’ve told myself so many times that I shouldn’t have felt guilty because his injury was caused by a clash, not by an intentional foul of mine. Obviously, however, I was very sorry for Gini, who deserves the best and will be able to give Roma great help from now on.”

The 20-year-old forward is enjoying a good run in the Cup competition, having netted all his Cremonese goals in the Coppa Italia. He has scored two goals for the Serie A strugglers.
