The aging Leonardo Bonucci gradually bids farewell to the national team. Luciano Spalletti, the new coach, has to think about appointing a new captain. National team agent Mario Giuffredi recommends Giovanni Di Lorenzo.
Mario Giuffredi is certain that Giovanni Di Lorenzo would make the ideal captain for the Squadra Azzurra. He’s also convinced that new national coach Luciano Spalletti should choose him. The two men worked together for a long time in Naples. “Spalletti knows that, but if it were Di Lorenzo, it would really be the right choice. Spalletti is the man who will revolutionize Italian soccer, and Gravina couldn’t have chosen better,” Mario Giuffredi told Il Mattino.
