Barella: 'Italy midfield works together'

Nicolò Barella thanks Antonio Conte and Roberto Mancini for helping him to improve. ‘We all work well together’ in the Italy midfield.

The Inter starlet had another excellent performance in tonight’s 2-0 win away to Bosnia-Herzegovina, which sent the Azzurri through to the Nations League Final Four with Belgium, France and Spain.

“I am at the disposal of a squad, we’ve got a great group. Manuel Locatelli, Jorginho or Marco Verratti, whoever plays, we work well together regardless,” Barella told RAI Sport.

He has not only shown himself to be crucial for Italy, but also in the Inter midfield alongside far more experienced figures.

“Conte has been very important for me, as he helped me to be more organised, to read and choose the various moments of the match, so I can only thank him.

“I also can only thank Roberto Mancini for putting his faith in me and I hope to keep improving.”
