Mauricio Pinilla is 19 years old and last summer he left Universidad de Chile with many dreams for a big european career as he was bought by Inter Milan.He was the most famous young player in his country and was called "the new Zamorano" by many.

...But he was loaned by his club to small Chievo Verona.And not only this,but till the time i write this post he played only 8 games for that club,and none of them in the first eleven."The last months i cried,as i never have cried in the past,i try to find the way to end this bad serial but i can't" he says...He wants to play football and surely,in Chievo this wish seems very,very difficult.Coach Gigi Del Neri has no trust on "Pinigol" and we saw this in the club's last game before Christmas when he was not even included in the 18-man squad."When i learned that,i left the field feeling i was lost"...

And it's not only the "playing" part that is bad for Pinilla.He is alone in Italy as he made no friends in his club and the atmosphere in the dressing rooms is not good."They don't like me.Especially Roberto Baronio uses to fool me in order to make everyone there laughing.They call my country as Chievo (Kile)..."

"We have many disagreements when i tell my teammates,that Chile has the best wine and they say the opposite.I want to go back,and bring them tones of our wine to show them what i mean.But surely i will not bring a bottle for Del Neri.This man is evil,i could say he hates me.He could even throw the bottle on my head!"

Pinilla waits that things will change as he gets playing opportunities only in the Chilean NT.

Those things are part of growing up in SerieA. He got to learn to deal with it HIMSELF.

Good exposure for him anyways.

But it's a fact that in Serie A,Italian youngsters are given many more opportunities than foreigners,especially those from "small" countries.Maybe that's good for Italian football,but what if Recoba hasn't opportunities when he was on loan to Venezia?He would be a lost football talent....and surely not the one who impresses today in Inter.

Oh please. Del Neri is known for giving chances to young players. If Pinilla is not playing it means he is not good enough or not motivated enough. If he fights with his teammates over wine, how does he expect to have a good feeling with them? :rolleyes:

He sounds like a brat.

Della Rocca,
which statement is wrong?
I can name you examples of Italian players that are under-average but play for their club (cause they are Italians),and some other foreigners who do not take the needed opportunities for one or the other season.
As for the second statement,i don't think Recoba would be the same if he hadn't games on his feet at his youth.This is a FACT.A fact that go for every footballer.

Amoroso,
I said nothing about the managing personality of Del Neri and if he gives chances to young players.I wrote specifically for Pinilla's case.....About the wine thing,maybe he just refered to one recent incident.;)But generally,if a whole dressing-room is against you all the time,even a joke for your country's wine will seem big disagreent ;)

I can name you examples of foreign players that are under average but play for their clubs instead of italians that are better as well.
