The outspoken Italian has slammed the local media in an extensive interview with Gazetta dello Sport this week.
He said: “Adam Johnson has great technique and Emmanuel Adebayor is the funniest. Patrick Vieira and Aleksandr Kolarov really helped me out when I first arrived.
“However, England is far ahead of the rest in terms of stadia and far behind in terms of its media. The newspapers are just trash."
