ROME – Interviewed by the Gazzetta dello Sport, the coach of the Italian national team Roberto Mancini takes stock of the situation a week from the start of the championship.
What is Inter missing to get closer to Juventus?
"It's early to say, let's wait. Juve is by far the strongest, let's not forget that he has been winning for eight years and has also strengthened himself: even Inter, but Juventus has not stopped. And as a Juve deputy, I see Napoli as dangerous: he has the same players who have been playing together for years, while Inter has already changed 4-5 and loses important players like Icardi and Perisic ”.
Is Brescia the right solution for Balotelli?
"If it is a good solution, it will not depend on Brescia, but on him: perhaps by playing closer to home he will feel more comfortable, but it will not be enough. I love him, but for him I can't do anything anymore ".
Are you curious about Fonseca's Rome?
"He's a good coach: Portuguese football philosophy, he has a brilliant game concept. It is true that in Ukraine Shakhtar almost always wins, but his team has always played good football ”.
De Rossi chose Boca Juniors: was it early to join his technical staff?
"Daniele still wanted to play and Boca's chance, a team with an incredible story, can be a great experience for him. He is young, I also: there is time to work together ”.
