Nicolò Barellamidfielder ofInter and of Nationalspeaks at the press conference next to the coach Mancini on the eve of Italy-Hungaryaccording to the commitment of Azzurri in Nations League: “There are many guys, like Locatelli, Frattesi or Esposito, who represent the present and the future of the national team, not just me and Tonali. Now that I’m among the most experienced I try to convey what the coach has given us in these years”.
YEAR OF JOY AND PAIN – “I’m so sorry not to have won the Scudetto and not to go to the World Cup, but it would be too easy if everything went well. Sometimes suffering strengthens you more than victories: since I started I have had so many disappointments and so many days of joy, but I try from every situation to learn as much as I can “.
HAS DECIDED NOT TO GO HOME – “I am not among those to whom the coach has given permission to go home and then when you wear this shirt everything takes a back seat, even if you are tired you come and play anyway”.
AMONG THE FANS PREVIOUS ENTHUSIASM FOR THE EUROPEAN OR THE DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE WORLD WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP? – “We can only thank the public, they have always filled the stadiums and tomorrow we will try to win for them”.
NATIONS LEAGUE – “It’s not for me to say if it’s superfluous, it’s exaggerated or you could do without these matches. We are in a period of the year in which a lot has been played and it is certainly a commitment, but wearing this shirt is an honor, never a burden. If there is something to play, I play and so do my teammates. “
WHY IS ITALY NOT ABLE TO CARRY FORWARD WHAT IT HAS BEEN DURING EUROPE? – “The non-qualification for the World Cup depends on a group in which we dominated all the matches, but there were episodes that didn’t turn us in favor … It means, however, that we didn’t deserve to go to the World Cup or it wasn’t ours moment. I’m sorry for the match against North Macedonia, we probably had to win 3 or 4-0: I’m sorry, I can’t give an explanation. We will try to do everything to go to the next one. “
HUNGARY – “I also followed her at the European Championship: she opened a cycle with Mr. Rossi, she is very compact and with our quality we will try to win this match”.
SALVATORE ESPOSITO – “He’s a guy who has great quality. He needs to be able to make mistakes, as he did me, and to have his experiences. I’m sure that in the future he will be able to give a lot to the national team: he plays a role in which making mistakes can compromise a lot, but he needs to grow and with maturity he will become a very important player for this national team for me. “
