Giaccherini and Sunderland: updates
Yesterday some media wrote that here had been a request from Sunderland to Juventus for Emanuele Giaccherini.
Born in 1985, Giaccherini started playing in lower division teams before arriving, in 2008 at Cesena, in Serie B.
With the team from Emilia Romagna he was promoted in Serie A and he played very well in his first year in the top Italian division.
His performances drew on him the attentions of some of the biggest teams in Italy: Juventus bought him in 2011.
Right winger, but very versatile, he won 2 times the Italian Serie A, scoring 4 goals in 40 matches played and gaining the call for the National team.
With the Azzurri he played 14 times. He has been one of the best players in the last edition of Fifa Confederations Cup, scoring a wonderful goal against Brazil.
Di Canio wants him for his ambitious Sunderland. I’ve asked around to a lot of agents and experts of transfert market and all of them told me that the interest in Giaccherini by the English team is real and concrete, but that Conte won’t deprive himself of a player so tactically important because able to play different roles.
