Sassuolo coach De Zerbi: Locatelli good enough for any midfield

Sassuolo coach Roberto de Zerbi says Manuel Locatelli could walk into any midfield in Europe.

The Italy international has been linked with Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus this season.

Discussing Juve coach Andrea Pirlo, De Zerbi told Sport Italia: “Pirlo is hardly judged: in the first team it is never easy, especially at the first experience, and not having retired is another thing that penalizes us.

“In any case, there have been matches in which Juve have been good, it shouldn't be seen only this year."

When asked if Locatelli was ready for Juve, he added: “Ready for any midfield “.
