Geoffrey Kondogbia is set to start his second game in a raw against Verona on Sunday afternoon, after being lined-up versus Chievo at San Siro this past Wednesday.

The Nerazzurri spent € 31 million to bring him to the San Siro last summer, deciding to let Mateo Kovacic joining Real Madrid for a very similar fee.

Selling Fredy Guarin to Shanghai Shenhua and deciding to sign Eder (striker) instead of Roberto Soriano (midfielder) in January window, was another proof that the club believes in Kondogbia’s qualities.

It useless to remember that the former AS Monaco’s star performances have been quite disappointing so far , to say the least.  

Mancini told journalists yesterday that the player “needs to settle-in well and that mistakes are part of the development of a young player”, but despite his polite words, Mancini is starting to lose patience with the Frenchman.

Kondogbia will have to show that he’s finally able to adapt and cope with the pressure coming from his expensive price-tag. That’s what makes the difference between a good player and a great champion and with the EURO 2016 just around the corner, Kondogbia can’t waste the umpteenth last chance given by Mancini.
