Mancini: 'Uncertain Scudetto race'

Roberto Mancini believes Juventus face an ‘uncertain’ and open Scudetto race from Inter, Napoli, Milan, Lazio, Roma and Atalanta.

The Italy coach spoke at an awards ceremony and was asked about the 2020-21 title race.

“I am thinking of Inter, Napoli, Milan, Lazio, Roma, but also Atalanta, who could confirm their status among the top teams.”

PSG and Arsenal ask after Jorginho?

Telefoot Chaine in France claim that PSG and Arsenal are interested in signing Italy international Jorginho on loan from Chelsea.

It seems an unlikely turn of events, especially as the Blues wanted at least €50m when Juventus attempted to get the midfielder for then-coach Maurizio Sarri last season.

Immobile: 'Best moment of my career'

Lazio forward Ciro Immobile said he realised ‘a personal dream’ when he picked up the Capocannoniere title in 2019-20.

Immobile scored 36 times in Serie A last season and helped Lazio reach fourth and qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 13 years.
