Marten de Roon has reiterated his pledge to make pizza for 1000 supporters if Atalanta manage to win this season’s Champions League.
The Dutch midfielder first made the promise earlier this year and received a question about it at a press conference before Wednesday night’s quarter-final against PSG.
"My promise to the fans? If we win the Champions League I'll make pizza for a thousand fans. Actually, even more than a thousand."

Leaving open the possibility for pizza next year, the former Middlesbrough player said:
As I said, if we win the Champions League there will be pizza for more than 1,000 people.
However, if we lose, we will try to reach that goal again next year. I can’t support us losing. We will try again next year and we will see how it goes.
