Italy coach Cesare Prandelli is eager to cool expectations around PSG midfielder Marco Verratti.

Big things are expected from the youngster.

"As for Verratti.... let's take it slowly. He paid for the old Italian routine where people fall in love with a new face and after 15 games look at him with different eyes. At the start everything seems great, then they become more demanding," said Prandelli.
