Contratto talks about client Mattia Destro

Renzo Contratto, the agent of Mattia Destro, Davide Santon, and Davide Astori, spoke today regarding Roma’s striker.

“The blow to Astori (by Destro)? These are things that can happen on the pitch, it was a completely accidental gesture. The two guys have cleared everything up peacefully. Mattia’s fine. He’s proving himself with numbers, because in the end, that’s what counts. Destro now deserves a call-up for the World Cup in Brazil? The head coach will make valuations, but I think Matt, by facts, is putting up a serious candidacy for the World Cup in Brazil and this is what matters most. It’s a scenario that was hard to see five months ago but now, again by the facts, I think he deserves the opportunity.”
