"The match in Olbia was a starting point and created a divide from the previous year. We all woke up after Olbia, where our season began." These are the first words from the director of the sports area, Fabio Artico, following the victory against Pescara that secured Cesena's promotion with four matches to spare. "I've always believed in promotion. I knew I was joining a strong club with a cohesive squad and a coach with clear ideas. I aimed to address the gaps from last year. I've been calm because I've always seen the squad as determined."

"Pierozzi's goal exemplifies the team's value. Throughout the week, there was great competition and unity of purpose. Every time there was a rotation, we always improved, and that shows the players have internalized this."

"The young players who have come up through the youth academy are a tremendous asset. The difference I've noticed here is that they are genuinely attached to the club; they have a special sense of belonging. You see it when they embrace; they dream of wearing the Cesena shirt, and that's something we need to nurture."

"I was fortunate enough to win in Alessandria, two completely different victories. Winning with four rounds to go is incredible; both are significant."
