Revealed: Four strict rules all Italy players must follow during Euro 2024… as Luciano Spalletti’s sidekick to defend his crown in Germany


Italy manager Luciano Spalletti has reportedly tried to instill discipline in his Euro 2024 squad by laying down four strict rules.

Spalletti, 65, will lead the Azzurri into the tournament in Germany this summer as they hope to defend the crown they reclaimed at Euro 2020.

However, Spalletti, who took charge of the national team after leading Napoli to a historic Serie A title last season, will be hampered by Italy’s status as the fourth seed, having been drawn in the group alongside Spain, Albania and Croatia.

And in an effort to help his team in Germany, Spalletti introduced four strict rules to his team.

According to EuroFoot, the 65-year-old has banned his team from using PlayStations and they will also be banned from playing games after midnight.

Players will also reportedly not be allowed to wear headphones when with the rest of the team and will be banned from using their phones while on the massage table.

Spalletti’s ban comes after compatriot Enzo Maresca was appointed as Chelsea’s new boss, with the Italian expected to impose strict discipline at their Cobham training base.

Marcos Alvarez, who previously worked with Maresca in Leicester and is moving to Stamford Bridge, has reportedly banned things like fried eggs, ketchup, salt and pepper from several clubs during his career as a notorious dietician.

Meanwhile, Spalletti has won six of his 10 games in charge of Italy since taking over following Roberto Mancini’s shock resignation in August.

Arriving in difficult conditions, Spalletti helped lead Italy to Euro 2024 by finishing just ahead of Ukraine in qualifying despite an excellent head-to-head record.

The Azzurri are currently in transition and Spalletti is aiming to cement his authority in a new team with some talented young players.

Despite automatically qualifying for Euro 2024, Italy drew 0-0 with Turkey and narrowly beat Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-0 last week in an unconvincing warm-up to the tournament.

They open their campaign on Saturday night when they take on Albania in Dortmund.
