Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo is happy to be part of Cesare Prandelli's first Italy squad.
Montolivo has played his best football under the former Fiorentina coach.
‚ÄúIt is a bit odd for me having Prandelli here as Italy Coach. I think he‚Äôs the first to be excited and fired up by this new adventure,‚ÄĚ said Montolivo.
‚ÄúThe World Cup experience was unique as far as I am concerned, but the results were disappointing and we‚Äôll try to make up for that.
‚ÄúSouth Africa taught lessons to those who remain in the squad and we won‚Äôt be making those mistakes again.‚ÄĚ
