Obodo: “I think the Italian championship will be affected by the farewell of Chiellini and Insigne”
Mancini is a high-level coach and is trying to launch many young players; I hope that he will be able to find the right players for his ideal team “. You are currently an assistant coach in America: what do you think of Chiellini and Insigne’s double arrival in MLS? How long will Lorenzo be missing from Napoli and Italian football? “I believe that the Italian league will be affected by the farewell of these two players, in particular Chiellini, who was Juventus captain for many years. The speech, however, also applies to Insigne: he was the symbol of a city for years, he made the difference to Napoli.
Fabian, Obodo: “It has great potential”
Football in America has some differences, the US league is lower than in Serie A. The two players, however, will have the opportunity to express their game in peace, without any pressure “. Since joining Napoli, Fabian Ruiz has changed his natural role, moving in front of the defense: do you think this is the right position for the Spaniard or is it more suitable for him to advance? “If a player like Fabian Ruiz can fill more midfield roles, it means that he has enormous potential. The Spaniard, in fact, is a very technical player, skilled in managing the ball. The important aspect for Fabian is that he perceives that he knows how to occupy that particular position on the pitch, not only for the team and for the requests of the coach, but also for his own qualities “.
