Verratti hails young Italian duo

Marco Verratti is convinced that former Pescara teammates Lorenzo Insigne and Ciro Immobile will be stars of the future.

All three Italian Under-21 internationals were key figures in the club’s promotion to Serie A last season before leaving the seaside outfit.

“I’ve played with Insigne and Immobile and I can tell you they are great players,” the Paris Saint-Germain playmaker noted.

“We know what each other will do with our eyes closed and I’ll tell you that they will become great champions.”

Insigne is currently at Napoli, while Immobile – part-owned by Juventus – is now playing his football with Genoa.
