Luciano Spalletti’s daring statement


By: Manu Tournoux

Luciano Spalletti, the Italy coach, does not deny himself any dreams for the continuation of his adventure with the Squadra Azzurra.

Luciano Spalletti is now the boss of the Italian national team. Last summer, he succeeded Roberto Mancini in this role. Even if the Azzurri are coming out of a delicate period, the former Naples coach is thinking big for the future.

Spalletti wants to take Italy to the roof of the world

“I need a strong national team, I am not satisfied with the few, he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. I want to win the European Championship, then the World Cup. But the speeches I give to the team are those that all Italians are waiting for: we are going to Germany to win, not to participate. Our history demands it.”

Nations League – Heavy for the Blues

While setting the bar very high, Spalletti insisted on the fact that his players will have to raise their level of play during the next continental events. “For that, I need the players to become better than they are. I don’t have time to train them: I need something that goes into them and lights a fire in them, that makes them open their eyes, that gives them the belief that they can do it. »

As a reminder, Italy is one of France’s next opponents for the next edition of the Nations League. And at the Euro, of which they are the defending champions, the Azzurri will face Spain, Croatia and Albania.
