“It happens, it's not just the fault of coaches or scouts. One can understand the talent, not predict the future," said Oddo.
“Italian clubs didn't entirely believe in Fernandes, that's true, but he even returned to Portugal and then something changed. Environment, language, style of football, who knows…
“He is a versatile talent, he can play as a Mezzala, but I also see him in front of defence. A bit like Rodrigo De Paul, who played as an attacking midfielder when I was in charge of Udinese," he continued.
“Now he plays in central midfield, even if I've seen him struggle with Argentina in that position."
