To make sure that Kondogbia will be able to express himself at his best in Italy as well, Mancini has chosen his Monaco midfield partner João Moutinho as the ideal “tutor”. Moutinho would also serve as a leader in midfield, able to catalyze the play around him and vary the tempo and control the team from midfield.
