On Depay and Wijnaldum
«Memphis and Wijnaldum are very good players, but they play many more games than in my time. It is logical that they can also score more goals, however I am not envious, quite the contrary. It is good to see that players like Wijnaldum and Depay are thinking of coming to Italy. Although I must say that in Barcelona the fans are pressing to keep Memphis, which showed good things here. Gini and Memphis are different, they will have or would have different coaches, Mourinho applies a system that is not that of Juve and not even the one to which Wijnaldum was used. I can’t make any predictions. But they are good and I don’t see why they should fail in Italy. In the year of the World Cup we must try to play as much as possible, I think this is an important motivation for Memphis, which in Barcelona is closed by many forwards. But it is certainly not the only one and indeed, from my point of view it is nice to see that players of such quality are happy to move to Italy ».
“If Zlatan feels it, I don’t see why he shouldn’t continue. He is a winner, a leader, he talks to young people, he is a character and in the history of football he has already shown a lot. At Ajax it is good to play for a striker, but there are many stories to evaluate and Ibra has been successful everywhere. Like me he played with Ajax, Milan, Barcelona. We have something in common, you know? But he has had a longer career. He is an exemplary professional and above all he understands football. I don’t see why he should stop if he feels good. Age is just a number on the documents ».
On the Scudetto
«We will have to see some real matches, not the friendlies. Milan, Inter, Juve and Roma seem to me on the same level. Atalanta was a good case at European level, now we have to wait to judge the future ».
