He told Bobo TV:
"Let's face it: our national team is a mediocre team and Mancini took them to the top of Europe last summer, making a miracle, playing in a way never seen before.
"I am truly sorry for Roberto, whoever asks for his resignation should be ashamed.
"We should all pray that Mancini will remain at the helm of the national team, he is the lifeline of Italy.
"[Ciro] Immobile, [Lorenzo] Insigne... many players seemed to me in difficulty. Italy has a mediocre team and Mancini had worked miracles so far."
