Mandorlini: Difficult to replace Iturbe

Andrea Mandorlini has conceded that it will be ‘difficult’ to replace Juan Iturbe, with the youngster set for a move away.

The Argentina trequartista is seemingly on the verge of a transfer away from Verona, with Juventus, Milan and Atletico Madrid all in the running.

And the Coach has admitted that finding a playmaker of that quality will be difficult.

“Iturbe is a young player who shone in our shirt,” he told reporters. “I am proud to have coached him and wish him all the best for the future.

“It’s going to be difficult to replace a certain starter like him – someone who has given so much to this club.

“But new faces will come, and we’ll start again. One thing is for sure – every team who we play next season will know they’re in a game.”
