Despite arriving at Juventus as a teenager in 2010, Leonardo Spinazzola rarely appeared with the club. The right-back spent the vast majority of his stint in the Bianconeri on loan at various clubs.
Fortunately for the Italian, he was finally able to make a significant advance in the Italian league as part of Atalanta led by Gian Piero Gasperini.
After a two-year loan spell at Bergamo, Spinazzola returned to Turin, but only spent one season with the first team, before being shipped towards Roma in an exchange deal that sent Luca Pellegrini in the opposite direction.
Since then, the 28-year-old has made significant progress, cementing his place as one of the best winger players in Serie A, and he is now receiving global praise for his performance at Euro 2020.
Therefore, his agent, David Lippi – the son of legendary manager Marcelo – looked into those who did not have enough confidence in Spinazzola’s talent, without naming anyone exactly.
Libby said in an interview with Calciomercato.com, as translated by him football italy.
“So I’m glad he’s reaping the fruits of his hard work and some people are now kicking themselves.
“He’s played for some big clubs, he’s been close to others, but now he has to focus on his career path and hopefully we can make it even better.”
Lippi was asked if the player would be happy to stay in the Italian capital.
“If Mourinho is going to be his coach, yes.”
