Zaniolo: 'I was ready to quit football'

Nicolò Zaniolo revealed the incredible turnaround from almost quitting football altogether to making his Champions League debut for Roma against Real Madrid.

The creative midfielder had yet to make his senior debut when he moved to Roma as part of the deal taking Radja Nainggolan to Inter in 2018, but now aged 20 has become a key figure in the Giallorossi squad.

“I knew that I could do all these things, but I didn’t realise that I could do them so soon,” he told DAZN.

Entella lose final Serie B appeal

As expected, Virtus Entella lost their appeal to the TAR tribunal, won’t be allowed into Serie B and have to catch up nine Serie C games.
