Verratti needs change, says Giresse
Nov 21, 2012 12:13 PM EST
Former Paris Saint-Germain coach Alain Giresse believes Marco Verratti must 'change his attitude' if he is to become a success at the club.
The 20-year-old moved to PSG in the off-season from Pescara and has been an integral part of coach Carlo Ancelotti's side.
But whilst Giresse admitted the midfielder is a gifted player, he reckons he must adopt a better approach to the game.
"It is clear that he must change his attitude," Giresse told Le Parisien.
"He is a player I like, he has quality, but believes he has already arrived. Verratti drifts in and out of games leaving his team-mates in the s*** and if it continues, he will be hated by many people.
"He has the chance to grow amongst these big players if he stays there. I hope Ancelotti will know what to do by putting him back on the bench."
Les Parisiens are third in Ligue 1 after amassing 23 points from 13 games and face Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League on Wednesday.
