The man who pulls the Bull for a win, the young striker Andrea Belotti. Author momentary 14 goals in Serie A, while thinking of primacy among the shooters, but more importantly for him, the success of the team. "If I won the trophy for the best scorer in the league, of course it would have been for me a great honor and a great achievement, but never those goals do not shoot himself. It's always teamwork, so in the first place is always the team.
