Exclusive interview with the Sassuolo talent: “Without words for the call-up, I think I can handle the pressure”
“I’m still a moment in confusion …”. To say it is Giacomo Raspadori after the debut with the National major in last night’s friendly match against the Czech Republic in Bologna. These are intense days for the young Sassuolo talent that Mancini wanted to include in the group of 26 for Euro 2020. “The comparison with Paolo Rossi it’s a lot of stuff – he continued the striker to SportMediaset – Would be really beautiful to do like him but for me, being here is a dream come true and I am proud of it. I thank the coach Mancini for this opportunity, I am truly speechless “.
It was an intense and growing end of the season for Raspadori, but from here to the head it runs: “I consider myself a quiet boy who tries to give their best every day and who thinks every day to try to improve, I think that’s the most important thing. I have come from a very good time but I have to always keep the right balance and take everything as a starting point and not an arrival point “.
How to handle the pressure? “If you do this job for so many years you have to be able to handle it. Of course it’s not easy, but if you take things in the right way trying to have fun and always giving everything for what we are passionate about, I think you are ready “.
