In the press conference ahead of Italy’s next international games, Roberto Mancini also spoke about Florenzi’s situation.
Alessandro Florenzi is not playing much with his beloved side Roma but he is an important piece of Mancini’s puzzle. The coach of the Italian national team firmly believes in the quality of the Italian fullback.
“Florenzi is not a problem. He got rest and will be fresh for these matches and for the European cup. He can play in different roles,” said Roberto Mancini to the press that attended today’s press conference at Coverciano.
In reference to Florenzi’s role on the pitch, the Italian coach sees him on the offensive side: “He has been playing as a fullback for many years and he is better when he attacks rather than when he defends. He is an important player to me.”
Accordo to Mancini, the captain of the Giallorossi can play as an offensive winger or in midfield because “he has experience and many years of football.”
