‘Florenzi has tactical intelligence’

Former Italian Under-21 boss Devis Mangia has underlined the talent of Roma midfielder Alessandro Florenzi.

The latter, who worked with Mangia in the Azzurrini set-up, has made a fine start to the season for the Serie A leaders.

He has featured in all seven of the side’s League games and is their top scorer thanks to his four strikes so far.

“He is a young and intelligent lad,” Mangia told Fox Sports. “He has done well to take in all of the advice of the Coaches he has had up to this point.

“He always knows what to do on the pitch thanks to his tactical intelligence and he knows how to time his late runs which make him so dangerous in front of goal.”
