Hellas Verona coach Ivan Juric spoke to gathered reporters at a press conference today, ahead of the Gialloblu’s league clash against Bologna, where he discussed Inter target Marash Kumbulla. His words were noted by Italian media outlet FcInterNews.
“Everyone has made progress, from the oldest to the youngest. Marash is an example, he’s a very serious guy, he’s focused on work. He must continue like that.”
The 19-year-old Kumbulla, who is contracted to the Veneto club until 2022, has made 13 appearances across all competitions for the Gialloblu so far this season, scoring one goal in that time. In his 1106 minutes on the pitch, the Albanian teenager has impressed a lot, owing to his strong defensive performances and his calmness on the ball.
His performances have been so impressive that even Premier League side Manchester United began following him. The Nerazzurri consider the player a strong investment for the future, but Juric’s squad aren’t likely to give him up for a low price.
