Former Inter defender Ivan Cordoba discussed some exciting Colombian talents and which players he’d like to join Inter in an interview with Colombian radio station Radio Caracol earlier today.

“I really like Luis Diaz, who is doing very well with Porto. As for the defenders, I must mention Davinson Sanchez and Yerry Mina, both would do very well in Italy.

“A particularly interesting player is Daniel Muñoz from Atletico Nacional, he has a different style, I’d like to see him at Inter. In Argentina, on the other hand, there is Jorman Campuzano. I like him because he is very good at build up play.”

Finally, Cordoba spoke about his time at Inter and how his speed helped him in his career.

“Playing alongside defenders of the caliber of Samuel and Yepes was very stimulating for me, people who exalted their team-mates. If I played at a high level, I have to say thanks mainly to my speed, a skill that allowed me to be a full-back. It happened, for example, in 2002, when Cuper placed me against Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League preliminaries against Sporting Lisbon.”

Cordoba spent the last 12 years of his career with the Nerazzurri, quickly becoming a core part of the squad. He made 454 appearances in that time, for a total of 37,903 minutes. In that time, he scored 19 goals and provided five assists. He won a large number of trophies with Inter, namely five league titles, five Coppa Italia, four Supercoppa Italiana, a Champions League and a FIFA Club World Cup.

Inter are looking to strengthen their squad in the upcoming summer transfer window, as coach Antonio Conte looks to fight Juventus and Lazio for next season’s league title. The Nerazzurri are currently nine points behind the Bianconeri, but have a game in hand and could still win this season’s title as well.
