Verratti from bad to worse

Marco Verratti, who grew up in Qatar, is not part of the new Italian selection.

This is confirmed: Marco Verratti is part of Luciano Spalletti’s plans, the selection of the Azzurri on October 18, a success for Roberto Mancini. In this case, the launch of the call for the international race takes place every October. And like a month earlier, the former Parisian is not part of the party.

To face Malta in Bari, on October 14, and England at Wembley, three days later – two matches counting for the Euro 2024 qualifiers – the Transalpines will do without the fresh midfielder being transferred from Paris to Doha , in Qatar, be your Al-Arabi club. And this despite the playing time recently accumulated by the native of Pescara.

In midfield, Luciano Spalletti would prefer to hear Nicolo Barella, Giacomo Bonaventura, Bryan Cristante, Davide Frattesi, Manuel Locatelli and Sandro Tonali.
