Roberto Mancini’s words

Roberto Mancini spoke to the microphones of Rai Sport after the win in Malta: “These are matches where you have everything to lose and they become bad matches. We did some good things and some less. It was important to win it, we unlocked it in the first half.”

“Can Retegui be an asset? Meanwhile, he unlocked the game. He was fundamental. He needs time, he still needs to know European soccer well. It takes time. The contribution of the flanks? I repeat. These are particular matches. You have no space to play. We could have done better. What could have been done better? Everything. Almost everything. When you go up 2-0 you have a chance to play with confidence. We had to do better.”
