In the national team there is a technical sector and a sector manager. – Camossi explains – I live in trust and I give a lot, it is the second time that she is betrayed and it will take a while to clear up. You don’t need to be friends you can have conflicting ideas but clear primary objectives “.

Let’s see if he’s a little more than fatigued or if there’s a small injury. In the first hypothesis we lost days.
