Capello: 'Zaniolo like Savicevic'

Former Roma coach Fabio Capello believes Nicolò Zaniolo has similarities to Milan legend Dejan Savicevic. "That's where his talent lies."

Capello was talking to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper about the Roma star, and believes he's matured over the last several months.

"Zaniolo has understood what it means to be an important player. His maturation is in process," said Capello.

The 20-year-old has been used both in attack and midfield, including both roles during Italy's 9-1 victory over Armenia.

Capello: 'De Ligt better with Chiellini'

Fabio Capello believes Matthijs de Ligt would've enjoyed a better start to his Juventus career had he played alongside Giorgio Chiellini.

De Ligt was signed from Ajax for €75m last summer, but has been scrutinised for several mistakes made during the opening months of his Juve career.

The defender was initially supposed to bide his time and be eased into the first team, however the injury to Chiellini after the first game of the season catapulted the Dutchman straight into the side, alongside Leonardo Bonucci.
