Leonardo Nascimento de Araújo, former AC Milan footballer, spoke at the Adriano Galliani memorial ceremony. He spoke about the performances of Italian teams in Europe this season. He also warned the Italians’s opponents of the complexity of beating an Italian team.

“Italy has always been able to adapt to situations. The three Italians certainly weren’t the favourites even to reach the semi-finals, but Italy always have one more resource: they know soccer. They always manage to find a way to be competitive. It’s not the best moment in Italian soccer, but the results speak for themselves: there aren’t just three Italians in the final, even teams like Milan and Napoli have battled it out in Europe. Italy won a World Cup by playing the right way, Italy won in Europe even if they weren’t the best team, knowing how to adapt to situations, and Italy reached three European competition finals. Maybe they’re not the favourites, but there’s a chance of winning. It’s never easy to beat an Italian team,” said the former PSG sporting director.
