Zaniolo speaks out about his Roma future
According to reports in Italy, Spurs are very keen on signing Roma ace Nicolo Zaniolo and have €50m or so ready to spend on the highly-rated talent. However, it doesn’t appear he wants a move.
“I’d love to be a symbol of this club and my objective is to stay at Roma forever,” he told TV show Le Iene (via Football Italia ) back in February.
“I don’t feel that I am anything like Totti, but it would be a dream to spend my entire career at Roma,” he added. “I’ll certainly try.”
Quizzed a few days later by Roma’s official website about his comments, the youngster said: “Playing in the same team as [Daniele] De Rossi and [Alessandro] Florenzi, and looking at what Totti did, you realise just how close to this club and these fans you can be.
“It would be a dream for me to do the same.
“For now I’m just focused on training and playing my football.”
Champions League final blow
Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino have suffered blow ahead of Champions League final against Liverpool.
There’s still three weeks until the showpiece occasion at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium – home of La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid – and it’s now been confirmed that Jurgen Klopp’s side have been given the better dressing room.
Despite being the designated ‘away’ team for the final, Liverpool are to experience the facilities in which Atletico have become accustomed to over the past couple of seasons and this is because of security reasons as explained below.
“Before we took our decision, we made an evaluation between the away fans, the Spanish police and the city of Madrid,” Wanda Metropolitano Stadium manager Fernado Fariza told Sky Sports News.
“We took into account the number of fans of both of the finalists, the metro lines and the fan meeting points in the city.
“Taking into account all these issues, the final decision was that Liverpool fans should arrive at the south stand and they will have all their tickets in the south stand.
“On the other hand, Tottenham supporters will arrive at the north stand and they will have all their tickets in the north stand.”
Pochettino to Juventus?
Former Italy legend Andrea Pirlo has backed Mauricio Pochettino to become Juventus’ new manager amid doubts over his long-term future at Spurs.
Eyebrows were raised ahead of the Champions League semi-final triumph over Ajax when he claimed he would consider his future in north London if they lift the trophy in Madrid.
As a result, Corriere dello Sport reported at the weekend that Pochettino has been in contact with the Italian giants and that he has demanded a huge €20m a year to move to Italy.
Speaking about the possibility of the highly-rated manager taking on the top job at Juventus, Pirlo has stated that Pochettino would be the perfect candidate to replace Allegri.
“He has an identity like Juve, he is a modern coach who has done a lot in the English league,” the Italian told Sky Sport, as reported by Calciomercato .
“Modern coach does not mean only the construction of the game, but everything. It comes from Spanish football, it’s a collection of things.”
