Former Inter defender Lisandro Lopez has insisted that his former Inter teammate and close friend Mauro Icardi must be part of the Argentine squad for this Summer’s Copa America.
“He is one of the best number nines in the world. There is no doubt about it,” Lopez, who spent the second half of last season on loan with Inter told Argentine broadcaster TyC Sports.
“He had some problems with Inter but now he is back on the field playing and he will soon find form again. In my opinion he must be called up by Argentine for the Copa America because he has a lot to give to the national team.”
This season Icardi, who has spent the past few months at war with the club, has made 31 appearances across all competitions for the Nerazzurri. In 2634 minutes on the field, Icardi has scored 16 goals and provided five assists to teammates.
