Cesare Prandelli praised Roma Coach Rudi Garcia for his “innovative ideas” ahead of the Rome Derby.
The Italy boss spoke to news agency ANSA and is looking forward to Sunday afternoon’s huge clash between local rivals Roma and Lazio.
“I expect a spectacular game and a lot of quality, but above all for this to be a great sporting event,” said Prandelli.
The Giallorossi have been very impressive so far under Garcia, top of the table alongside Napoli with a 100 per cent record.
“Garcia did important things at Lille. His main characteristic is giving teams balance and in my view he is a Coach with innovative ideas.”
