Marco Verratti: former agent doesn’t mince words
The words of Marco Verratti’s former agent
Marco Verratti’s former agent, Donato Di Campli, gave an interview to Tv Play where he did not mince words when talking about the Azzurri midfielder.
“Marco lacked the balls in having to hold out for eight months, because he was on deadline with Psg, he could have gone to Barcelona and made another career,” he stressed. “He was afraid to face those people in Paris and he bowed out. He was locked up in a room by former Paris Saint Germain director Antero Henrique and Al-Khelaifi and was told ‘Leave your prosecutor and we will renew everything you want.’ A guy who was 22-23 years old at the time, he was in trouble. And now we are in the same situation with Mbappé. Let’s also not forget the Rabiot situation, with the mother who didn’t care if the boy stayed on the bench.”
“I with Marco had chosen to go to Barcelona,” Di Campli added, “We probably would have seen him in Serie A as well. Now he goes to get a lot of money, but he goes to the middle of the desert with camels. Will he go to Arabia? Yes, from my information he will go there, we are at the details.”
Finally he revealed a backstory before Verratti’s arrival in Paris: “Marco has always been a Juventus fan and we had an agreement with Juventus before signing for PSG. Pescara wanted to monetize as much as possible on the transfer and we had to reconcile this need. With Juve the contract had already been signed.”
