Genoa coach Prandelli excited by Romero potential

Genoa coach Cesare Prandelli rates Cristian Romero among the best young players he's worked with.

The Argentine defender is being linked with a summer move to Juventus.

“Never before have I coached a 20-year-old with his quality," Prandelli told Telenord.

“He needs an experienced player alongside him to help him get to grips with the pace [of the game] and situations.

“Playing in a back three or four isn't a problem for him. if a player is limited to playing only in one way, that's not a good thing.

"He has the ability to recover quickly and has physical prowess. He still has to improve technically, speed up his play and change his game, but he has an extraordinary base to work with."
