Pizarro: ‘Enormous Zanioo potential’

David Pizarro is very impressed with Roma teenager Nicolò Zaniolo. “He has enormous potential and I hope he can stay here for a long time.”

The creative midfielder is only 19 years old, but has already become one of the most reliable performers in Eusebio Di Francesco’s side.

Zaniolo scored his second goal of the season in yesterday’s 3-2 victory over Torino and ex-Udinese, Inter and Roma man Pizarro was in the stands of the Stadio Olimpico.

“Zaniolo has enormous potential and is only starting to show what he can do. I hope he can stay here for a long time,” the Chilean told Roma TV.

“It was a hard-fought game, but Roma seemed to be in control when Torino equalised with only two shots on target. I hope the Giallorossi have put the difficult period behind them, as the very least they can do is qualify for the Champions League.”
