Agent: ‘Giovinco deserves Italy’

Sebastian Giovinco’s agent insists the Toronto FC man deserves to be called-up for Italy.

The ‘Atomic Ant’ has been excluded by CT Giampiero Ventura and his predecessor Antonio Conte, who see Major League Soccer as a competition which isn’t challenging enough.

Giovinco has 21 goals and 14 assists in his 31 games so far this season, and his representative says that should merit an Azzurri call.

“He’s very disappointed,” Andrea D’Amico admitted, speaking to SportMediaset.

Seba over Simone

Despite MLS detractors, Richard Thomas believes Sebastian Giovinco deserves an Italy call more than Simone Zaza.

Italy Coach Giampiero Ventura’s omission of Graziano Pellè, Mario Balotelli and Sebastian Giovinco, for differing reasons, from his 28-man Azzurri contingent to face Liechtenstein and Germany was probably the main talking point from his squad announcement.

Agent: Giovinco unfairly ignored

Sebastian Giovinco’s agent slammed Italy Coach Giampiero Ventura for discrediting Toronto FC without “knowledge” of MLS.

The Atomic Ant has been on sensational form in North America, but was ignored for international duty again.

Ventura explained his reasons in a Press conference, mentioning that “he plays in a League where the number of goals he scores has less importance.

Giovinco: 'No call from Italy'

Sebastian Giovinco stands up for MLS football at Toronto FC and hopes “sooner or later” he’ll get a call from the Italy squad.

The Atomic Ant has rather slipped off the Azzurri radar since moving to North America, but tonight faces Andrea Pirlo’s New York City FC in the play-off semi-final.

“It’s the first time we’ve faced each other in a knockout match with such high stakes. One of us will go home and I hope it won’t be me,” Giovinco told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Giovinco vs Pirlo for MLS history

With Sebastian Giovinco and Andrea Pirlo set to play the biggest match of their MLS careers, Marco D'Onofrio sets the scene. 

By 5.30pm on a Wednesday evening, you couldn't find a single seat in any one of the numerous pubs in Toronto's Liberty Village. Toronto FC was just two hours away from their first ever home playoff match, and fans left work early to flock to the neighbourhood surrounding the stadium in anticipation of the spectacle that was to come.

Don't ignore Giovinco

He may have left Italy nearly two years ago, but Marco D'Onofrio argues Sebastian Giovinco still has so much to give.

Unless you live in Toronto or follow Major League Soccer, it's easy to forget Sebastian Giovinco is even still playing professional football. Despite only being 29 years old, the Atomic Ant has become rather irrelevant to many who watch the Italian top flight. After all, he did leave Turin almost two years ago and didn't have the greatest of exits after struggling to solidify a spot in Massimiliano Allegri's side.

Samp and Torino target Bradley

Sampdoria and Torino are trying to bring ex-Roma and Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley back to Serie A.

The USA international turns 29 next week and left Italy to play for Toronto FC in January 2014.

According to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, both Samp and Toro are eager to lure him across the Atlantic this summer.

The main concern is represented by his current wages, which are out of reach for lower-mid-table clubs.

Bradley is well-travelled, playing in America, Holland, Germany, England, Italy and Canada.

Milan and Roma eye Giovinco?

Toronto FC star Sebastian Giovinco could return to Serie A for Milan or Roma, according to Italian reports.

Now calciomercato.it claim 29-year-old Giovinco is the subject of interest from two big Serie A clubs.

Milan have stated they want to create a squad based on Italian talent and have already snapped up Gianluca Lapadula from Pescara.

Giovinco: 'I'm happy at Toronto'

Sebastian Giovinco acknowledges being at Toronto FC hurt his Italy chances, as “unfortunately it wasn’t enough to go to Euro 2016.”

The Atomic Ant was not picked for the Azzurri despite the dearth of reliable forwards.

“Why am I not in the Nazionale? I asked myself that too,” Giovinco told SportItalia.

“I think it’s down to the type of choice I made. I think that I proved I am in good shape, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to go to Euro 2016.
