(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 04 – “The value and attachment to the shirt is something that begins to fade”. Gabriele Gravina does not mince words to comment on the exodus of the Azzurri from Coverciano (in particular to discuss the case of Lazzari and Zaccagni on which coach Roberto Mancini had also expressed himself) in approaching the national team match tonight against Germany . “We are beginning to perceive a sort of detachment, there are external contaminations – underlined the president of the FIGC interviewed by Sky -. There is someone who is anxious to protect their interests, this is in the DNA of the football clubs.
Someone else does it out of grudge, someone else still has conflicting behaviors. The attachment to the shirt is something that begins to fade, in this we will need to do something more: it being understood, and I say it with the utmost respect, that the blue shirt can be left but those who do it then assume their responsibilities and we will go anyway forward “.
