“I can't forget about him, he was already amazing. He had the same physical strength as today, but he was 12," Ravanelli told Tuttosport.
"He was strong, explosive, impressive. It was impossible to score. None of his teammates was able to find the net, so we tried with several shots from the spot, but he was still able to save everything.
“He was different from the others. It's easy to say so now, but I knew straight away he'd become a top player."
Ravanelli urged Juve to snap him up.
“It's a pity because a small investment would have been enough to sign him," said Ravanelli.
“It's a shame, he would have been the perfect heir to Gigi Buffon. Now they have Szczesny, who is another great goalkeeper, so I understand the club and Allegri."
