How do you leave? What do you expect from these two games?
“The outcome will be important, this is a group where anything can still happen. We have to try to win both games to try to finish first. Then, along with the more experienced players, there are also some young players who have been called up June” –
What are the criteria for these invitations?
“Spinazzola called me and told me he wasn’t feeling well, he needed to work for two weeks and I left him at home. I left the others at home because they’re two games, and I didn’t want to call much for them. They stayed at home different, but I thought it was right because they play so many races “.
There are many foreign strikers in the Italian league
“It is definitely an anomaly, unfortunately, the big teams have had many foreign strikers for quite some time. The only one who has been there for some time is immobile: Hopefully this is not an irreversible process and that the 2-3 attackers may be out soon. They give the national team a future. It’s not too small a problem.”
What’s on your mind from a tactical standpoint?
“You can do everything…I think you have to always try to have the same character in play, that’s the most important thing. Then I don’t think the system can change many situations, we have players who play for clubs in many cases. 3-5-2 but they are versatile players and the priority should be to play well.”
What does it tell us about the new?
“Regarding the goalkeepers I say I wanted to evaluate them, we want to evaluate them and see them. At the moment we have a lot. Mazzuchi is not a kid, but he is doing very well and we are happy to see him live.”
What are your thoughts after Germany won 5-2?
“It’s never good to lose 5-2, but even in that game there were good things. Sometimes you need games like this to see where you have to improve, we were in the fifth game at the end of the season and we were suffering a little bit. But I think the match helped us. , especially for young players with experience. In the first matches of the Nations League, given the situation and the absence of Europeans, we performed well with five points.”
How is the patient?
“Verratti cannot succeed, he took a hit. I think Tonali is not a big problem, Pellegrini we evaluate him between today and tomorrow, while Politano is doing well.”
Can you move to 3-5-2?
“I don’t reject this premise in advance, but there must be a reason to change the shape. My fear is that by changing the shape, the team stretches a little, we are physically not very strong and we need to dribble. But it is not eliminated..”
Would you call someone instead of Verratti?
“Yes, we may call Fratesi…”.
What do you think of the Skamaka track?
“We are playing against a team that is physically strong enough… Scamaka has had a difficult league and it will take some time to understand English football: 3-4-5 months it will take him to understand and play in the Premier League, the time his team plays and I think the tournament can be help him.”
What would you like to see improve in this retreat? What do you like about Udinese?
“Udinese is a team with a few Italians, but they are playing well, they are physically fit, they have high quality players and they are well deservedly there at the moment. We need to improve in all aspects, we need more enthusiasm because we are clearly not in A very happy moment and we have to go back to have a little fun.”
What is your mood?
“It won’t be easy until December. The players have the clubs, but it will be very difficult for us. But, as I said earlier, we have to find the enthusiasm and we have to give that support by the fact that we have won the European Championship. This is since we started before 4 years until today, the number of Italian players is down, but we can’t do anything more than they do. As we call those in Serie B, we have some difficulty but we have to go our way.”
Want to comment on what happened in the Marche?
“I was there, I hadn’t seen much rain before. The disaster happened 10 kilometers from my house, it shouldn’t happen anymore, but we always say it later…we should fix things first. I really feel good and regret.”
What news do you have about the possibility of voting in the elections?
“We can’t do anything right away… Now let’s first think about the win against England: anyone who is there can probably leave immediately, and on Sunday morning anyone who wants to go can go, I think they are also right.”
How did you find the Juventus players?
“We have two players from Juventus, Bonucci is an expert and I don’t think he will have any problems and Gatti is really happy to be here.”
TMW – Napoli is the most called up team, why is that? Is Rasbadore attacker convince you?
“It’s a team with some more Italians than others, 3 who have been here for a long time but also Politano has always been part of the project. I think it’s good for him to play in the Champions League.”
How did Milan and Napoli look to you yesterday?
“I watched several matches at the start of the season, some very strong. There are good matches, others a little less, but I think it happens in all the leagues. Milan and Napoli were great, but I don’t think it brings us any closer to the English championship because they are all in the Premier like this. , until the last against the penultimate.”
What do you think of young people who traveled abroad? And Juventus, who is the only one who led the U-23 team?
“Going to play abroad can help you, and hopefully they can also play a lot of games. Two years ago Meretti was in the U-23 team, and now he is a key player at Juventus. Of course, he can help.”
Have you seen Balotelli’s amazing video?
“No, I haven’t seen him. Who in life has never faltered? Honestly, I haven’t seen him.”
Who plays in the MLS has been disqualified?
“No, no one was left out. Insigne might have come, but he had a very serious family problem.”
