Bari midfielder Massimo Donati is angry over his Italy snub.
Donati insists he deserves a place in the Azzurri squad ahead of several of Marcello Lippi's selections.
âWas I angry? On Sunday I was a little bit, yes,â he confessed to the Corriere dello Sport.
âOn the other side, there is the awareness that if players from Cagliari and the other provincial sides can get into the Nazionale, then eventually someone from Bari could get in thereâ¦
âBefore the end of my career, just once, Iâd like to wear the Azzurri jersey. I do have regrets in leaving Milan too early, but thatâs water under the bridge.â
