Ciro Amore, the president of the boys club that Inter starlet Sebastiano Esposito began his footballing career with, has shared his delight following the 17-year-old’s first start and first goal.
After a handful of substitute appearances, Lautaro Martinez’s suspension opened up the opportunity for Esposito to get his first start at first team level. He got his first goal in the 4-0 win over Genoa too as strike partner Romelu Lukaku very kindly handed him the ball when a penalty was won and Esposito duly converted.
“We were excited when Esposito scored the penalty against Genoa, now we are even more so after he brought us his Inter shirt,” he remarked in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Sportiva.
“Esposito has always believed in himself. Since he was a child he has always had certain characteristics. It will be difficult for anyone to get into his head because he is serious and someone who want to get to the top.”
He concluded: “He has made so many sacrifices. Sebastiano is very close to the family, who also made great sacrifices, especially when he went to Brescia.”
