Injury Zaniolo, the advice of Carlo Ancelotti: "Move back to midfield to extend your career".
Ancelotti encouraged Zaniolo and advised him to retreat his position on the pitch to avoid other serious injuries. The Everton coach made these statements during an interview with Andrea Schianchi for La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I'll call him on the phone in the next few days, but he has to rest assured. He will come back stronger than before, I guarantee him. I got hurt 40 years ago, now surgery has made great strides and rehabilitation techniques are constantly updated. I am sure that Zaniolo will become a champion and this, as well as for Roma, is good for Italy.
Zaniolo has impressive technical and physical qualities. He will be able to do whatever he wants on the pitch, I do not rule out that he may become a great midfielder, retreating his range of action.
After the injury I triumphed with Roma. Unforgettable moment. Which I wish Zaniolo to live, because winning a championship with the Giallorossi shirt on is something unique. You will see that he will make it and will drag the Magica again, I still call it that: for me it is always the Maggica, with two "gs".
Destiny always gives you something back in the end. You have to be ready to take it. I would like to give Zaniolo only one piece of advice: follow what the doctors tell him, do not rush and you will see that in the long run he will win the match ”(source La Gazzetta dello Sport ).
