DF: Starts 15th European Championship. Who or what you think the team as a favorite?
R/: “Yes, this is the largest event of the year in football. I believe that the French national to be fought and its headquarters, has the first word. It has great talents like Pogba, Griezmann, that the coming years will hear to speak very often about them. Then there is the endless midfielder, Matuidi who do great work in midfield. Certainly one can not ignore the world champions Germany, but I think the players might occur tired of the many games. After Belgium has some very good players and certainly capable of great things. Of course we must not forget that if England find a solution to the defensive function has the potential to reach very high.

I trust that you will find a suitable solution and Milan will be able to rejoin the path of great success. Of course to do this need to solve the financial and get important players”.
