NAZIONALE BEZZI – At “1 Football Club”, a radio program hosted by Luca Cerchione broadcast on 1 Station Radio, the Rai journalist Gianni Bezzi spoke.
Nazionale, Bezzi: “It is no coincidence that Italy has not gone to the world championship for 8 years. Changes are needed, starting with the youth sectors and the nursery “
National team outside the World Cup?
“There is a very important underlying problem… to build something good you must first make a series of changes, starting with the youth sectors and the nursery. We cannot think that Italy does not go to the World Cup for 8 years and that it is a coincidence. We were not only unlucky, it is that the generational changes are made by building from below, by the courage to field young people with great prospects. There must be a new job that must start from the choices of the coaches, who should not be criticized when they go to field young people in club teams. The fans want established names but that’s not the way it is, we are paying for this. We have always had a great tradition by winning great events with great defenses, I am thinking of Nesta, Cannavaro… but now we need a different evolution. Knowing that there are children who have never seen a World Championship is a serious matter and the responsibilities are ours. I would like to add another thing: how is it possible that Italy had the most prolific striker in the Italian league between the European Championships and World Cup qualifiers and that the latter had so many difficulties? The answer for me concerns the characteristics of Immobile. Let’s take Ancelotti for example, who won the Champions League and spoke clearly. He ruled that it is not the team that must adapt to the coach, but the coach who must adapt to the players. But if Immobile has scored so much in recent years, why didn’t Mancini adapt his game to such a striker? There is too much obsession with schemes. “
