Former Inter Milan and Italy attacker Mario Balotelli shared his thoughts on Daniele De Rossi’s return to Roma in place of Jose Mourinho.

A few weeks after Jose Mourinho’s sacking, Balotelli spoked positively of his former Italy teammate – with whom he shared the dressing room in 2012 – as Roma’s interim head coach.

“Changing coaches always brings enthusiasm to the team,” Balotelli told TVPlay,“but then we must also underline that Roma had three easy matches against three weak opponents.”

“I believe that De Rossi can do well as a coach, I was convinced that he would have this type of career already when he was a player,” he added.
