Tardelli: ‘Italy must rebuild from Barella, Zaniolo and Tonali’
The Azzurri are in flux after winning the European Championship and then failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Their results in the Nations League have been mixed, beating Hungary 2-1, drawing with Germany and England, but also losing 5-2 in Monchengladbach.
Speaking to news agency ANSA at a sponsorship event, 1982 World Cup winner Tardelli was asked if Italy are suffering from the lack of a block of Juventus players who are accustomed to each other.
“It’s not there now and never will be again, more than anything Juve have a block of foreign players,” he replied.
So who should Roberto Mancini look to in order to rebuild the next era of the Azzurri?
“Barella, Zaniolo and Tonali,” said Tardelli.
Roma forward Zaniolo saw his career stalled by two devastating knee injuries, but still scored two goals in nine caps.
