Italia national team coach Cesare Prandelli sat down for a brief moment to give an interview on the week’s highlights of Calcio. When asked about Andrea Stramaccioni, he technically briefed: “Inter are going through a tremendously difficult time, one that he is taking much of the blame for. He is very young and has had to find solutions in tactics match-after-match. They have not come out as he expected, but it is not his problem entirely. Inter leave the pitch with sights and hopes set on the third-place Champions League position and everything is still in swing and entirely possible. 10 games are decisive.”
The next topic of much subjective speculation was Antonio Cassano and whether his time for the Azzurri has ended. Prandelli downplayed the rumors respectively. “No more international call-ups? Absolutely not true. Cassano is an excellent player that is a part of the national team. However, I have had to deal with branch the team out and play with multiple options. As such is true, had Cassano continued to play, for example, I would have never had the chance to discover Stephan El Shaarawy. Antonio is doing very well at Inter and for him, like others, the doors will always be open.”
FantAntonio has showcased and spoken about his desire to continue playing for the Azzurri countless times during his spell at Inter.
