Andy Mattioli

Former Italy and Juventus manager Marcello Lippi spoke highly of Daniele De Rossi’s start to life as Roma’s head coach.

Lippi – who collaborated with De Rossi during their days with the Italian national team in 2006 and 2008 – was asked about De Rossi’s progress since his appointment in the Italian capital in January.

“De Rossi is doing really well at Roma,” Lippi said in an interview with QS.

“I am very pleased that these guys [the class of 2006] have also developed themselves as technicians with a mentality that I have tried to pass on to them during our run in that famous World Cup.”
