Abete comments on “controversial” roster snubs

Vice president of the FIGC, Giancarlo Abete, was interviewed today in La Gazzetta dello Sport regarding the World Cup and Cesare Prandelli’s selections.

The choices of the manager…
“The controversies were expected because there weren’t any new names towards the end of the season. Immobile, Insigne, Destro, Rossi…it was natural that there would be some problems.”

Not to mention Totti, Toni, and Gilardino…
“The fact that they remained in contention tells us how great these players are, but it also shows how difficult change is in our football.”
