Domenech hails Euros form of Sassuolo midfielder Locatelli

Former France coach Raymond Domenech has hailed the form of Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli at the Euros.

Domenech rates Locatelli as a big story from Euro 2020.

He explained, “His first goal against Switzerland was fantastic, the way he spread the play for Domenico Berardi and then sprinted forward to follow the move and score.

"He has all the characteristics of the modern midfielder, who few big clubs have around Europe. He's athletic, solid physically, has technique and is quick. Locatelli is the real surprise of the Euros for me."
