Albania Coach: It's Easier To Get Hold Of The Pope Than Speak To Adnan Januzaj

Albania boss Gianni De Biasi says he can get in touch with Pope Francis easier than speaking to Manchester United youngster Adnan Januzaj.

The Italian hopes to hand the wonder kid his first international cap – beating Belgium and Kosovo to the player.

But, so far, that has been a tough task.

He said: “We’re stuck. We just don’t know.

“I and the heads of the federation have made every effort to contact him but the problem is his father, who does not give us even a normal answer.

“By the way, I find it easier to get in touch with Pope Francis than Abedin Januzaj (his father).”

It’s thought the 18-year-old attacker will decide on his international future before the World Cup in Brazil, and Belgium – who qualified for the tournament – appear to be in pole position to get him.

Januzaj was born in Brussells, where his Kosovar-Albanian family migrated in 1992, and spent six years at Anderlecht before moving to Manchester.
