Italy coach Mancini enjoying title race; laments lack of local talent

Italy coach Roberto Mancini admits he's enjoyed this season's title race.

AC Milan go into the final round two points ahead of Inter Milan.

Mancini said, “First of all, we have to say that it has been a great season, where many have fought for the Scudetto until recently. And even in the relegation zone there will be teams that will fight as well as those fighting for Europe.

“I don't know who will win, I think Milan have a bit of an advantage because they have two results in their favour. But matches must be played, then whoever wins will deserve it, be it Inter or Milan. Both have in any case had a great season.

“I sincerely hoped that more players would come through, but the situation hasn't changed in recent years, there are many good young players who can't find minutes.

“Being down to 32% Italian players is strongly limiting for all national teams. When (Nicolo) Zaniolo arrived for the first time at Coverciano, he looked like a child, after two months everything changed. The boys improve quickly."
