Mancini enjoys Frenkie de Jong: ‘Great, what a midfielder, one of...

Roberto Mancini was disappointed about his Italy’s draw against the Dutch national team (1-1). “I think we should have decided in the final phase,” said the Italian national coach, before he was so sporty as to hand out compliments to Frenkie de Jong and his colleague Frank de Boer.

“Frenkie de Jong played great”, said Mancini. “What a midfielder that is. One of the best at the moment. Of course I can enjoy it as a fancier. But despite his good game, I think we should have won. Especially that ball from Ciro Immobile would have liked it. ”

Mancini admitted that he was surprised by the way the Orange played with five defenders. “The Netherlands stands for offensive and dominant football. Not for playing soccer with five defenders. I did not expect that. We were certainly surprised by it and had a hard time with that way of playing. I think they were shocked by the duel with us a month ago. I did not expect my colleague to start like this. Anyway, they made it difficult for us. ”

Allessandro Florenzi agreed with his coach. “What I saw today was an Italy that forced the Netherlands to completely change their tactics. For the first time in a very long time they played with five defenders. That shows that they are afraid of us, that alone should make us proud. ”

Midfielder Jorginho agrees. “Both teams played well. What was the difference with the 0-1 in Amsterdam? It was mainly a tactical story. In addition, they put a lot of pressure on us and limited our options. Eventually we found a way to get out of that pressure, then they could no longer neutralize us. ”
