Leonardo Bonucci and Matteo Darmian during today’s press conference at Coverciano:

I don’t want to appear presumptuous, but Buffon, Barzagli, Chiellini and myself are the best defence internationally: the figures show that. We all have to thank all the managers who have taught us so many things, especially Conte. He taught us a new way of defending. If you get your positioning right on the pitch then everything gets easier. - L. Bonucci

What I do know is that to stay in this Azzurri group you have to work hard and it’s exactly what I’m trying to do every day. I am very attached to the Azzurri shirt. - M. Darmian
