Sassuolo boss Alessio Dionisi has taken aim at the press over reports that suggest Giacomo Rasapdori is unhappy at the club, according to a report in the Italian media.
Whilst speaking to Tuttomercatoweb.com, Alessio Dionisi said that whoever wrote the initial story did it to sell newspapers rather than because there was any truth in it.
“Whoever wrote that Raspadori complains about having played little did it to sell newspapers. Had he asked me or Giacomo he would have been denied.”
Giacomo Raspadori was heavily linked with a move to Inter during the summer and is still being linked with the same transfer for next summer or even January.
It is known that Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is extremely fond of the Italian youngster and wants to make him part of the Nerazzurri squad.
Alessio Dionisi is calm about the situation but feels it is damaging to the squad and the player to have constant reports about his future.
“There really is nothing true. He is good and has the future in his hands. If you talk about him it’s worse for Sassuolo and for the boy, a class of 2000 who must feel comfortable.
“The market is for journalists and managers. I don’t know if we will lose some big players, I hope not, but if the club, together with the coach, were to decide to sell a player, an equally good player would certainly arrive.”
There was also a mention for Gianluca Scamacca who is also linked with a move to Inter.
“He has potential and he has not yet fully expressed it. He must continue to work to improve further.”
