The words of Adam Lallana, Brighton footballer, on Roberto De Zerbi’s influence in England. The details
Adam Lallana is one of the columns of the Brightonthe man “Important on and off the pitch” according to master Roberto de Zerbi. He won’t be on the pitch tomorrow FA Cup semifinals against Manchester United and gave an interview about it Gazzetta dello Sport.
I LIKE DE ZERBI – “Because he sees the game the way I see it. Not just tactically or with the ball, but in what he asks the players how they live the game. Even though he doesn’t speak English well and I don’t speak Italian, we understood each other just by looking at each other.”
Knew him before he arrived – “NO. And I’m embarrassed to say it.”
HISTORICAL SEASON FOR BRIGHTON – “There was no disclosure match. We’re still building our team and adding something every week. Roberto always adds a few details and when we see it work on the pitch it gives us even more confidence and spurs us on to work even harder to play the kind of football he wants.”
