Italy manager and former Roma coach Luciano Spalletti paid special praise to Giallorossi midfielder Edoardo Bove.

In a recent interview with Rai 2, Spalletti was asked about the future of the Italian national team and the integration of younger players into the senior team’s squad including 21-year-old Bove who recently emerged as a reliable starter for Jose Mourinho’s side.

“In recent months, we saw the emergence of players we’d been tracking for a long time such as Kayode, Ranieri, Koleosho and Casadei,” said the Tuscan manager.

“Bove is now a certainty,” he added about the Roma man. “A very fine player.”

“I liked the attitude of Lucca in the last period, and then Prati, Calafiori who is a certainty on the left and in the centre of the defense, and is ready for the national team.”
