Sassuolo: Berardi a phenomenon

Luca Antei is the latest Sassuolo player to sing the praises of 19-year-old teammate Domenico Berardi.

The forward, co-owned by Juventus, has netted six goals in his first eight top-flight games for the Neroverdi.

“He’s a calm and shy lad,” the former Roma youth team player commented. “He doesn’t act like a phenomenon, even if he is one…

“You can give him the ball in any manner and he will get it.”

The newly promoted outfit had a poor start to the season by losing their first four games, but they have picked up the pace following the 7-0 home thrashing to Inter.

“Coach Eusebio Di Francesco has done well,” added the defender. “He is one of the secrets to this side.

“The 7-0 reverse to Inter made us understand that we had to change in certain aspects and we have done that.”
