Lautaro Martinez spoke with Inter TV prior to his official presentation as an Inter player following his arrival from Racing Club de Avellaneda earlier this month and firstly spoke on the origins of his nickname and what kind of player he is.
“It was the nickname given to me when I first arrived in Bueons Aires and it stuck since that day. I can play anywhere across the front lines, but in the end it will depend on what the coach wants.”
Martinez, who has signed a five year deal with the club, then spoke on the influence Javier Zanetti and Diego Milito had on him.
“They very much influenced my choice. They explained to me what this club means. Since the club came to Buenos Aires they have convinced me with the project and with the coach’s way of playing.”
The 20-year-old striker then spoke on what he thinks of the San Siro and how he is coping with the Italian language.
“It’s impressive. In Argentina I played in important stadiums like that of Racing, but I can not wait to see what it will be like to play in front of my new fans.
“I understand it but I do not speak it yet, I am trying to improve more and more in training and beyond.”
