"At Manchester City I was coached by Pep Guardiola and De Zerbi, from the first training sessions, reminded me of him a lot.

"They are the only coaches who spoke to me about attachment to the shirt and dedication. Even though the infrastructure was different, in that period at Benevento I felt like I was still at Manchester City."
