Zaniolo: 'Better with each day'

Roma midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo admits his ACL injury felt like “a hammer blow” but assures “I feel better and better with each day.”

Zaniolo remains on the mend after rupturing knee ligaments against Juventus in January and had been due to miss Italy’s Euro 2020 campaign.

Bastoni: '10 years at Inter'

Alessandro Bastoni says he can see himself at Inter for the next 10 years, “with some trophies in the cabinet and maybe the captaincy.”

Bastoni returned to Inter last summer after a loan spell at Parma and has gradually broken into their first team, displacing the vastly-experienced Diego Godin at the back.

“At first I was scared, I was afraid of not being good enough for Inter,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Glik 'frightened' by news in Italy

Monaco defender and former Torino star Kamil Glik has admitted he follows the “suffering” in Italy with a heavy heart. “The number of deaths is frightening”.

Since then, he had a loan stint at Bari and moved to Torino in July 2011, where he spent the next five seasons. After playing 171 matches for the Granata, scoring 13 goals in the process, he was picked up by Monaco for €11m in 2016.

The tournament was due to kick off on June 12, but has been postponed to the summer of 2021, something that could well transform the Azzurri squad.
