Inter Forward Colidio: “I’m Learning A Lot From Icardi, He’s Part Of Inter’s History”

Inter Primavera forward Facundo Colidio says he is ‘learning a lot’ from training with compatriot Mauro Icardi and has told Luciano Spalletti he is ready for the first team if wanted.

Colidio joined the Nerazzurri from Boca Juniors in a deal worth €7 million last summer and has scored 13 goals in 41 appearances for the club’s youth team so far, including one in the Primavera Scudetto Final against Fiorentina last season.

Speaking to Argentine newspaper Clarin, the 18 year-old said he is gradually adapting to life in Italy and described the opportunity to train with captain Icardi as the best thing that had happened to him since arriving.

“It would be impossible to take Mauro’s place in the team because he’s one of Inter’s historic goal-scorers,” he said.

“He’s the captain of the club and I’m learning a lot from him: when we’re together I can always receive advice. It’s great having a teammate like him.

“When I first arrived in Italy I realised everything was different here. I was mostly adapting in my first year because the way football is played here is not the same as in Argentina, here it’s much more tactical and physical.

“I was lucky enough to do preseason with the first team but you have to take one step at a time, that’s the best way to approach football.

“I’m feeling calm and I’m available for the coach if he wants me.”
