Pochettino: 'Verratti a truly great player'

It proved a masterstroke, as Verratti provided an assist for one of the goals in a Kylian Mbappé hat-trick.

Thiago Motta favourite for PSG job?

A former Serie A coach is the favourite to replace Thomas Tuchel at PSG, claim RMC Sport, but it’s Thiago Motta rather than Max Allegri.

“I spent too much time at Inter, going out on loan all the time didn’t help me,” Longo told Tuttosport.

“I always have the same passion, the same desire. I never give up and you’ll see it here at Vicenza.”
