😎I wouldn't say Barella is a leader in the normal sense currently. But he looks to be one in the future.
Padelli in goal due to Samir finger injury yeahI'd say Brozovic is the natural choice after Samir because of how long he's been at Inter (in a week, he begins his 7th year as an Inter player) and his role as a fulcrum on the pitch. He also takes younger players under his wing. De Vrij has to be in serious contention because he's the organizer of the defence and because of his age (months older than Brozo; both born in '92). And, of course, he's been Captain for both Feyenoord and the Netherlands.
I guess Conte sees Brozo as the natural choice as well and also places a lot of importance on how long one has been at the club (like most do). Skriniar captained the side before but neither Samir nor Brozovic started the match (away to Udinese last season; we won 2-0). Brozo was Captain when Samir was out in our 4-2 Derby win last season.
