Pirlo hits out at Italian Coaches

Andrea Pirlo has hit out at Coaches in Italy for prioritising foreign players who ‘aren’t as good as our own’. “They lack courage.”

The topic of Italians not being given more chances in Serie A is back on the agenda for this international break, and Pirlo made it clear he agreed with Azzurri CT Roberto Mancini.

“Italian coaches lack courage. It’s been like this for a while: many foreigners aren’t as good as our own,” the former Juventus and Milan midfielder told La Repubblica.

“it also happens in Serie B and even in the lower Leagues. They probably cost less, otherwise I don’t see any reason for it.

“I think that for a CT, the problem refers mainly to the big teams: Inter, Juventus, Napoli and also Roma don’t play many Italians. The exceptions are Milan and Fiorentina.”
