Ahead of the Milan derby on October 21, Milan based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport have examined it from a social media viewpoint.
In terms of overall followers across all platforms, Milan trump Inter with 36 million followers, the 11th most for any club around the world. Inter meanwhile have 14 million across their social channels and sit in 17th place globally.
Individually speaking, Inter’s top two at captain Mauro Icardi and Radja Nainggolan whereas Milan’s leading two are Gonzalo Higuain and Hakan Calhanoglu. Mauro Icardi is the best followed of all players between the two squads and this is largely down to the very social life he lives with wife and agent Wanda Nara.
The Milan based newspaper also report that support for Inter is growing in Ghana and Senegal with thanks to Kwadwo Asamoah and Keita Balde being at the club. Moreover, they are seeing growth from Mexico, Brazil and India also.
