Verratti: 'Perfect understanding with Pirlo'

Azzurri talent Marco Verratti praises his newfound partnership with Andrea Pirlo: 'We work well together'.

The Paris Saint-Germain player and the New York City Football Club representative were fielded together in a pairing that brought together a promise and a veteran for Italy's game against Malta.

After the game, La Gazzetta dello Sport reported some of his words on the partnership.

“We work well together, as we cover different tasks,” he said.

“He directs play, I stay a little bit closer to the goal.

“Now we must work to develop a perfect understanding between us.”
