“Roberto Mancini is the right man to start again. He played football, he knows what football is, he was a great champion and also a great coach. And it will still be. We must give him confidence and be patient in his work “. With these words, the attacker of Juventus wanted to start his interview with the magazine Undici : “If you want everything right away, in the end everything breaks down. If you immediately expect an Italy that wins 4-0 the first five friendlies, there is something wrong – emphasized the midfielder – When you touch the bottom you have to take each other’s hands, and together. We all have to go in the same direction: the press, the players, the insiders. We all have to make a mentality speech “.
LET THE YOUNG PEOPLE WORK – “We need a mentality that brings us back up, where Italy deserves to be. To make young people grow, to strengthen the relationship with the coach and the management. There must be a core that works for the same goal: to restart Italian football – he continued – This group of players is valid: there are many young people of personality and perspective, we have a healthy and strong group from which to start again. Obviously the young man can not be the veteran, it takes a little more time. Who has three appearances in the national team can not be like those who have eighty. What should not be wrong is the fact of criticizing a group of young people, criticizing the fact that these young people are not ready. We give them time to grow up. There have also been several Del Piero, Totti, Maldini. The player grows, matures: the experience is so much in football “.
AND JUVENTUS? – Arriving in his second year with the Juventus jersey, Bernardeschi finally defined himself by the mentality ready to stay in a company like Juventus: “At the beginning I suffered physically, not mentally. The first two months I have suffered a bit from a physical point of view. From the mental one I have to say that my classmates were very good at making me integrate. This is a context that helps you to grow a lot, and if you are a smart guy who learns things you understand much more than in another company – he said – I think one thing that distinguishes me is this: when I arrive in a team I look a lot new “.
CR7 EFFECT – “Cristiano Ronaldo immediately joined the group – explains Bernardeschi -. What he does in the field is under the eyes of all, but also outside is an exemplary professional as well as being an exceptional teammate. He is a great champion, one of the greatest in football history. I think we have to be good at understanding, and take as much as possible from him: his mentality, his desire to work – he said – I hope he continues to make us win, as we have already done, but with him we can take a road even more winning. The competition in pink? Help to win, help the whole team. When you have great players by your side is always an incentive to improve yourself “.
