âI saw him one day at lunch and I told him that it was perhaps the right time for him to speak to the Press,â the Italian national team official told Sky Sport Italia.
âI said that there was a good breeze in his direction and that there was a need for a new protagonist in the absence of Antonio Cassano.
âHe said: âIf you say that this is the right time then Iâll do it.â
âHeâs a very good kid with us. He laughs, jokes and plays. Heâs not one of those guys who causes trouble every now and again.â
