🏆 Italy's manager Mancini on why he's not happy to face Spain in England

Roberto Mancini believes that having to face Spain in London for the 2020 Euro semi-finals is unjust.

The English capital was pre-determined to host two semi-finals as well as the final of the event after passing Covid-19 regulations, as well as the nation's overall success with managing the international pandemic.

After delivering a couple of highly inspired performances in Rome, Italy now has to see if the team can replicate the same class against Spain in London.

“I think it’s pretty unfair if I’m perfectly honest,” the Italy head coach said via the Guardian.

“We’re better off playing in front of any crowd as opposed to playing in front of a small number of people; that’s what’s great about football and entertainment in general.

"But I do think it’s very unfair that we don’t have half the stadium full of Italian fans and half the stadium full of Spaniards," the former Manchester City coach concluded.
