Italy boss Roberto Mancini: “Zaniolo has ample room for growth”.


Italy boss Roberto Mancini held a press conference today on the eve of the Azzurri’s Nations League clash against the Netherlands.

The former Inter manager was asked about Roma attacker Nicolo Zaniolo, who came on as a substitute during Friday’s 1-1 draw against Bosnia.

“Zaniolo and Kean? They have both grown a lot compared to the past,” said Mancini.

”They are young and still need to improve, but they are on the right path. I am happy and I think their clubs are too”.

”Zaniolo can improve a lot. He can play as a right winger or mezz’ala. He is still young and has ample room for improvement as a person and footballer.”.
