Vialli hails Sampdoria duo

Vialli and Mancini were a hit up front for the Blucerchiati as they won the Scudetto in 1991 and reached the European Cup Final.

“Are Pazzini and Cassano like me and Mancini? I really think they are,” said Vialli.

“Their understanding has grown spontaneously and is very natural. Cassano sets the tempo and dictates the passes, while Pazzini reads the game the same way.

“Besides, they both have the right mentality to wear the Sampdoria shirt and that is not an easy thing to find.”
