“Failure to qualify for the World Cup is the lowest point from which he has rebuilt”
The former national team coach, Gian Piero Ventura, had his say on the blue possibilities at the Europeans. “Italy can make a great European, there is great conviction and also of quality – his words to LaPresse -. There are prerequisites for doing well. This is my wish for the team and the federation. Too much expectation? I think it is due to the path taken. There was an incredible streak of results that brought conviction and serenity “.
“The pressure? In any tournament or league there is some, but you can breathe a positive and proactive air, you feel it in the players and in each component – he added – In this national team there are young people who have matured, see Barella and Chiesa who were with me at the beginning. There are players who I don’t say make a difference but are important and have had European experiences. This national team is not only able to make a great European but is the basis on which to build the possibility to be able to make a World Championship as protagonists “.
After the failure to qualify for the World Cup “it became clear that the path we were taking was not the right one. There have been radical changes, starting with the federation. We should go into details but it is better to avoid. That was the point. lower and from that point we started again with the conviction of doing different things. And when you do different things and do them well you carry out the reconstruction “.
