Legendary Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso has come to the defence of Inter defender Diego Godin, who has come in for some criticism in recent weeks and months.

Godin joined Inter on a free transfer on a three year contract this past Summer after his contract expired with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid but has come in for criticism throughout his first season in Nerazzurri.

Cambiasso, who spent a decade on Inter’s books between 2004 and 2014, however believes that the criticism that the veteran Uruguayan centre back has been subjected to is unjust and dismissed the idea that Godin has failed to adapt to his new surroundings this term.

“Godin had the humility to try to do the best he could with what Conte asked him to do at Inter. In the three man defence he is not at ease, but often ends up doing well when playing at the centre of it,” The Argentine remarked in an interview with Spanish news outlet AS.

“He has made no serious mistake during the season and ends up going unnoticed in all games. There is no negative data to say that he has not adapted. He had the humility to accept everything that Conte asked him to do.”

This season Godin has made 25 appearances across all competitions to date. In just over 1900 minutes on the park he has assisted one goal and helped Inter to keep seven clean sheets in the process.
