Zaniolo ‘fascinated' by Premier League

Roma and Italy starlet Nicolò Zaniolo says he is ‘fascinated’ by the Premier League and admits he dreams of playing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Zaniolo is currently out of action with a knee injury and has just recovered from COVID.

“I’ve been training on the pitch for the last two or three days,” Zaniolo told fans in a Clubhouse chat.

“I think I’ll return to action in April,” he added.

“I often watch Premier League games. It’s quicker and more physical than Serie A, it’s a nice and fascinating league,” Zaniolo said.

“There are many players I’d like to play with, the dream would be [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic.”

What did he make of the derby Roma lost in January?

“I could do nothing on my own, I could have been an extra weapon, but a player doesn’t make a team. The team is the most important thing and we lost 3-0. We wouldn’t win 5-3 if I had played.

“It’s normal to make mistakes. In the derby [Roger] Ibanez made one, but it happens.”
