Roberto Mancini’s words

Roberto Mancini from the pages of Il Mattino has returned to talk about Gianluigi Donnarumma, in the crosshairs of critics after a few too many mistakes even with the national team jersey.

“I will never tell him to play less with his feet, but I will tell him to be a little more careful…. There are times you can’t: all the more so against strong teams like Germany, in a team with such young teammates, who have practically never played together.”

Chapter three-man defense: “You can work on that as well: you don’t necessarily win with one system. But recovering Chiesa, and with Berardi in addition, we can continue with that as well… What matters is to have people who play at a high level and get to the goal with the game, as we have always done.”
