Inter Boss Spalletti Hails the Leadership of Croatian International After Victory at Crotone

Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has heaped praise onto Croatian winger Ivan Periši? after the 28-year-old took charge and guided the Nerazzurri to victory on Saturday, according to ?ESPN.

Summer signing Milan Škiniar opened the scoring for Inter in the 82nd minute, with Periši? easing concerns of a late Crotone comeback in added time by smashing the ball low beyond the Pitagorici’s captain, Alex Cordaz.

Periši? sacrificed himself a lot,” Spaletti said. “Leaders show themselves when the team needs them and Ivan has shown that he is important in these opening matches.

Teams that want to get results think this way, by dividing up strengths and weaknesses and by taking on responsibility when their teammates are in difficulty.”

The former AS Roma manager also said that he was proud to see his side adapt to overcome their difficult opponents at the Stadio Ezio Scida.

“It was not easy and our players were very professional, adapting to a style of game they were unaccustomed to,” he said. “It was very hot in Calabria, the pitch was very dry and slowed down the pace of the ball, while the wind also created problems in the first half.

??“We were a little more fluid after the break, then Crotone tried to get it on second balls, flick-ons and Ante Budimir did a great job. Adapting to all of this is a sign of great quality.”


Liverpool to Move for Young Fiorentina Hot-Shot Federico Chiesa Within the Next Year

According to Calciome?rcato, Liverpool could be set to move for Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa either this January, or in next summer’s window.

The 19-year-old has recently burst onto the scene in Italy and is the son of former Italy international, multiple Serie A winner and prolific goalscorer Enrico Chiesa.

Despite being a teenager, the winger has established himself in the first team and.has impressed since breaking onto the senior scene in Serie A.

Although he plays mainly as a right winger he can also be deployed in behind the striker due to his goal threat.

The forward is fast and skillful, with those qualities helping him score three and assist twice last season, in 27 appearances for Fiorentina in Serie A.

Last season’s performances were said to have attracted the interest of a host of European clubs, but with Chiesa having already hit the ground running this season Liverpool are now thought to be seriously considering a move.

The Italian under-21 international has played in three out of four Serie A games this season and has already scored for Fiorentina this campaign, after he netted against Bologna in a 2-1 victory last time out.

Liverpool are reportedly set to make a move within the next 12 months, however Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli, Inter Milan and rival Everton have also all been touted as potential destinations for the youngster.

Apparently Inter had mentioned Chiesa when negotiating and then signing, Borja Valero and Matias Vecino, from Fiorentina this summer.

However, the Italian side reportedly set a high price of over £35m, something Inter were unwilling to pay at the time, although they are expected to go back next summer.

Fiorentina’s high price suggests that they have no plans to part with Chiesa and see him as a big part of their future going forward, so if Liverpool want to get their man they may well have to pay a premium price.


Inter Milan Eyeing PSG Prodigy Adrien Rabiot Amid Interest From Tottenham and Arsenal

Italian giants I?nter Milan are reported to be keen on signing Paris Saint-Germain’s French midfielder Adrien Rabiot amid interest from both Tottenham and Arsenal, according to website Football.London. The 22-year-old has been on Inter Milan’s radar for some time and the club previously attempted to bring him to the San Siro back in 2014. 

Despite Inter’s long-standing interest, as well as that of Arsenal and Tottenham, the Frenchman has continued plying his trade at the Parc des Princes, making 39 appearances and scoring four goals last term. However, with his contract running down and due to expire in 2019, all three clubs have been alerted and are in a battle to secure his services. 


According to website Calciomercato, Inter Milan are first in the queue of admirers and will aim to beat competition from Spurs and Arsenal to sign Rabiot. 

PSG are fond of developing their homegrown talent and may be unwilling to sell Rabiot considering the midfielder is one of the most gifted passers in Europe and has potential to be a big player for the club in the near future. 

FBL-FRA-LIGUE1-PARIS-TOULOUSE’s Paper Round editor Alexander Nethertonhas been following the story and stated

“[Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy and [Arsenal boss] Arsene Wenger would first of all be delighted to sign Rabiot in these circumstances—any contract problems means that the club could pick up Rabiot on the cheap compared to if he had a secure future at the Parc des Princes.”

It is unlikely PSG will let such a talent leave on the cheap, but with Rabiot’s contract running down Inter Milan may yet be able to sign him for a bargain.


Luciano Spalletti Praises Goalscorers After Inter Milan Beat Crotone 2-0 to Top Serie A

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti praised Milan Skriniar and Ivan Perisic after his side’s 2-0 win over Crotone on Saturday.

The centre-back opened the scoring in a scrappy affair before Perisic sealed the points with a strike in injury-time and Spalletti thanked his two match-winners, admitting Inter laboured for large periods against the Serie A ?strugglers.


He told Inter’s ?website“Skriniar is a player who is always alert, he’s physical and he has personality. We put faith in him and he’s a tough starter for those who show faith. 

“Perisic sacrificed himself a lot. Teams that want to get results think this way by dividing up strengths and weaknesses and by taking on responsibility when their teammates are in difficulty. 

“Leaders show themselves when the team needs them and Ivan has shown that he is important in these opening matches.


“We won a match that was crucial for us, we kept saying that all week.

“We struggled a bit, Handanovic made two important saves but to win like that is a sign of adaptability, mental toughness and great personality.

“The road is still long, we have 34 games left and we have to be ready to play them in such a way that we can look to win as many as possible. We’re not getting carried away. We are on the right road but we have to keep quickly making steps forward.”

Inter are now top of the Serie A table, with title rivals Juventus and Napoli playing on Sunday.


Inter Manager Luciano Spalletti Insists Captain Mauro Icardi Needs a Higher Value Release Clause

?Despite stirring controversy with fans in recent years, Mauro Icardi has done well as striker and captain for Inter Milan.

Inter Boss Luciano Spalletti acknowledged the Argentine’s outstanding performance in Serie A in an interview with ?Premium Sport, where he stated that Icardi’s release clause should resemble that of Real Madrid’s Isco.
