In a recent media interview, Ciro Immobile spoke of his appointment as captain by Luciano Spalletti. He also spoke of Spalletti’s relationship with the team and put to rest rumours of a possible problem between him and the Tuscan. As far as he is concerned, he has simply been the victim of a lot of criticism for some time now.
“I was very happy that he gave me the captain’s armband, it’s an important gesture that I wasn’t expecting. I called my family straight away, I was so excited. He’s going to do well because he talks a lot with the players, motivation is fundamental and he always manages to give it to everyone. I’ve never had a problem with any coach, everything was created from the outside. These days, even those who don’t watch the games criticize me, it’s all the rage. When someone puts a mark on you, it’s difficult to take it off,” Ciro Immobile told Il Messaggero.
