Former Lazio attacker Paolo Di Canio shared his thoughts on the tense situation between Roma and Nicolo Zaniolo who recently expressed his desire to leave the club.
Di Canio specifically addressed Mourinho’s words from last night’s post-match media appearances, where the Special One admitted to feeling sorry that Zaniolo’s main wish was to leave so abruptly.
“Zaniolo has a problem of constantly being distracted by what happens on social media,” Di Canio said at Sky Sport Club. “Mourinho is right in feeling like he’s owed a bit of gratitude as he’s always protected Zaniolo no matter what.”
“Mourinho is right to feel betrayed by Zaniolo after having protected him all the time,” he added. “Mou wants to win, and wants to qualify for Champions League football, but he knows that if Zaniolo ends up staying, he will have to take care of that situation first.”
