I did not know Sensi before but for me he is like an unbelievable young talent. He has so much quality, he is the little Verrati, I always say because he has everything like him and he just has to be constant and if he is consistent he can play any top team in Europe. He has everything, he is aggressive, he is skillful, he gives perfect pass, he has perfect control. He has surprised me a lot to be honest“.
