Very good news.
Yes, agreeGood together with Barella he needs to be the core of this team for the next 10 years.
😆Nikola Iliev is by far considered to be the biggest prospect of Bulgaria's players born in the new millenium. I truly hope that he will develop there (but not as much as to be offered to play for Italia ).
That's a nice story. And I have to say I was always impressed by his physical appearance... Nice pick-up for Inter, can only add leadership.😆
I wonder how this will pan out. Of course, I hope he'll develop and Inter will eventually bring him in to the 1st team...but it's more likely he gets loaned out for experience. Or even sold to another team first where he'll shine and make us want to buy him back later (e.g. Pandev).
A live example of our Primavera players making it into our first squad is Alex Cordaz. He joined in 2002 and I don't think you can count his 1 and only appearance ever for the first team in 2003 (Coppa Italia vs Juventus) "making it". But after being farmed out and sold, lost and forgotten, we signed him again...just days ago...at the tender age of 38!
Correct; it's not official yet. But it seems safe for us to treat it as done with him going to HQ last week to sign and with Crotone's Sporting Director saying he's pleased that Cordaz will be joining us.Cordaz isn't official yet though?
Anyhow he is good enough as backup. And yeah, there is a romantic aspect to his comeback, especially as he had a big car accident and then he left Inter.
He's an affordable and willing replacement for Padelli. I'm guessing he was hand-picked specifically because and Zanetti and Oriali would already know him from 2 decades ago. They know he's the right sort of person from personal experience and the relationship with him would help in making a quick and easy deal too.That's a nice story. And I have to say I was always impressed by his physical appearance... Nice pick-up for Inter, can only add leadership.
