Last month, former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Walter Zenga took charge of Venezia, who are currently playing in the Italian second division.
After six matches commanding the team, the 28-year-old has given an interview to Gazzetta Dello Sport to talk about his start and his adaptation to the city and Serie B.
There were also a few more questions about Zenga’s career, especially because he’s played and managed in so many countries, including United States, Romania, Serbia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and England. Quizzed about what he’s learned in all these places, he said: “Everything. From how we deal with situations and how we compare. Crucial for a manager.”
Then Zenga was asked that among the many experiences, which was the one that hurt him most: “Samp and Wolverhampton. Ferrero admitted he was wrong, in England I replaced Lopetegui and I paid for the results, not the performances “.
Zenga probably refers to Wolves’ chase for Julen Lopetegui in the summer of 2016, when the Italian manager ended up getting the job.
The boss was also quizzed about a manager who he admires: “Pochettino, I went to see him, very kind. I’m a Tottenham fan: against Chelsea it was extraordinary.”
