Marchisio has been outstanding for club and country this season.
âI am moved at the comparison with Tardelli,â said Marchisio.
âHe was one of the greats of Italian football. I hope to have a career where one day someone can say âthat lad is the new Marchisio.â
âWe stepped on to the field in Belgrade and told each other weâd play without fear. I was so concentrated that I didnât even hear the crowd jeer the Italian anthem.â
