Capello: Barella like Tardelli

Fabio Capello says Cagliari and Italy starlet Nicolo Barella reminds him of 1982 World Cup winner Marco Tardelli for his ‘dynamism’.

Barella was considered among Italy’s best performers during the international break, having only made his Azzurri debut in the midweek friendly against Ukraine, before helping them beat Poland 1-0 on Sunday.

“Barella’s the player who can change the tempo in midfield,” Capello told Radio Anch’io Sport.
