Enrico and his son are very different-Roberto Mancini

The Italian national team head coach believes that Chiesa and his father have nothing in common and Mattia Zaccagni and Matteo Lovato should join a better team.

Federico Chiesa, who joined Juventus from Fiorentina last summer for 60 million euros, scored two goals in Wednesday night's game against Milan and ended the Rossoneri's winning streak. Mancini believes that Chiesa should not be compared to his father, the former star of Fiorentina and Parma.

"Enrico and his son are very different. Enrico arrived at Samp when he was very young, I remember he went out on loan at Modena after his first season at the club and he started scoring goals.

"When he returned, he was more complete, everyone wanted to sign him. He is a very nice person too.

"Physically, Federico is different from his father, technically they are only similar for the last touch before a shot on target.

"Enrico was a striker, Federico is a winger, he runs more than his father. Juventus is an important step for him. The club will help him improve, also on a personal level.

"WHe is doing very well with the National team, we have some interesting young footballers such as [Mattia] Zaccagni and [Matteo] Lovato.

"It would be important for them to join a top club when the right moment comes. Now it's Hellas Verona who must enjoy two players they have invested in."
