“Let’s not throw a cross on Mancini – commented the former blue coach after the defeat against North Macedonia -. I would decrease Serie A by 2 teams”
“We have a good squad, but we’re not in the best shape, and yesterday we saw. But we can’t say that Italy doesn’t have players, we’ve always had those thirty important players and this group has them too”, so l former Azzurri coach Dino Zoff on Radio Radio broadcaster reflects on the failure of Mancini’s national team, which will not go to the World Cup in Qatar.
moment of passage
“Then there are also the generational changes that affect the results. I tried it in Munich 1974, there was a critical moment and we went home on our mobile phones, those of the police, after we had done amazing things before the World Cup “. “Yesterday we didn’t put her in – he adds, returning to yesterday’s match in Palermo – but we have strikers”. On young people: “If they are good in their teams – Zoff replies – they come out and we put them in the national team, then today they have strong personalities and it’s not like in my times when we were shy and the maturation times of a player are slower. Now it’s the On the contrary, after three matches a young player is in Heaven. In any case, the best players have to play in the national team, both old and young. Of course, when there are stops like this, you have to look around and think about what you will do “.
“In my day – explains Zoff – there were ten of my little Friuli playing in Serie A and four in the national team, now it is thirty years that, yes and no, there is one. The reforms? You can’t go from an extreme to the other, but perhaps two teams in Serie A would eliminate them “. On Mancini: “If after failing to qualify for the World Cup, Mancini has to resign? I don’t know, it will depend on him. I don’t want to throw crosses on him, it wouldn’t be fair and I don’t want to give these judgments.”
