Legendary Inter midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron has dismissed comparisons being made between his compatriots, Juventus’ Paulo Dybala and Inter’s Lautaro Martinez.
“They are different. Dybala can play as a second striker and also as an attacking midfielder, Lautaro cannot but inside the box he is a player who regularly finds the back of the net,” he started an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia which was broadcast earlier on today.
“They can play together, they are young and still have many years to improve everything they have already shown in these years.”
Veron was then asked if he could name the best midfielder that he played with and he went on to admit that there was no shortage of top midfielders that he played with during his playing career which spanned two decades.
“It is difficult to name just one. In the midfield when I was at Lazio I had Mancini, Simeone, Nedved, Conceicao, whilst at Parma I had Fuser and Fiore. At Inter I had Davids, Gonzalez, Cambiasso and Figo.”
Veron then went on to discuss comparisons that have been made between himself and current Inter and Italian national team central midfielder Stefano Sensi: “Maybe Sensi does have some certain characteristics that are similar to mines.”
In conclusion Veron went on to reveal that he still holds Italian football close to him having spent a large chunk of his career in Italy.
“I always follow the Italian league, I spent 10 years there and I cannot detach myself from it. I’ll be back when I can to watch, I like Italian football and the league is recovering. In the past it has been among the best, we hope that everything can pass soon and that it can recover.”
Veron spent two years on Inter’s books between 2004 and 2006 and made a total of 74 appearances across all competitions for the club in which he scored four goals and tallied 11 assists.
