What role do you play? Does Sabatini help with the Primavera?
“I am the head of the youth sector. Overall I have a great relationship with Sabatini and Massara, Ricky is more attentive to the Primavera, I work more with the Allievi. We work as a team.”

Benatia seems to want to leave…
“I knew Benatia well, he’s a great man before he is a great player. I’m convinced that he’ll stay. He always makes himself available to the younger ones, he’s a great leader.”
