With a message posted on his Instagram account, Nicolò Zaniolo wanted to silence the rumors that he refused a call-up of the National Team for friendlies against Albania and Austria.
These are the words of the Giallorossi number 22:
“In recent weeks I had to deal with a blow suffered in Verona and a subsequent hematoma that did not allow me to be 100% of the condition. Nevertheless, I always tried to grit my teeth and put myself at the disposal of the coach and my teammates. In the meantime I was sorry to read that I would not be available for the National Team: as always I will respect the choices of the coach Mancini, but I never thought to spare me and not to answer a call. A hug”
