Italy Under-21 boss Devis Mangia wants to see the hype around Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne cooled.
There are already calls for the attacker to be promoted to the full Italy squad.
â€śMy primary objective with the Under-21 side is to ensure that as many young players as possible go on to Cesare Prandelliâ€™s full national side,â€ť Mangia told Radio CRC on Monday.
â€śThe Coach will make his decisions, but there is a total understanding between us.
â€śHowever, Insigne is a boy who needs to grow and we shouldnâ€™t put too much pressure on him right now.
â€śLorenzo is a splendid youngster and heâ€™s trying to showcase everything he can do to achieve something important.
â€śHeâ€™s growing very quickly, but he needs time and patience.â€ť
