Paolo Nicolato, the U-21 coach, expressed himself about the situation with these words:
“I have no doubts about this guy. The first time he wore the blue shirt. he played with me in the Under 18, so I have known him and his qualities for a long time. I have to pay him a special compliment because Sandro, who had already breathed the atmosphere of the National First Team, had the considerable ability to then return to the Under 21. It is not an easy thing from an emotional point of view, and it is not so obvious. I have no doubts about him, he’s good, has great personality and he’s a guy with whom I also have a special affection.”
