Udinese president Giuseppe Pozzo discussed the future of Inter linked goalkeeper Juan Musso in an interview in today’s paper edition of the Mestre based newspaper Il Gazzettino.
“We fully share the opinion that another year here would be good for his growth. He’s still young, he has plenty of room for improvement. He has an excellent physical structure and I think he’s very similar to Handanovic.”
Pozzo moved onto discussing the possible restart of Serie A, which could start in the second or third week of June.
“I’m not the one who asked not to start again on 13 June, but later. The athletic trainers are asking for it. I didn’t invent anything, I simply gave voice to a physiological need of the players and those who have to prepare them.”
Finally, Pozzo spoke about another player linked with Inter in the past, Rodrigo De Paul. The Nerazzurri considered signing him in the January transfer window before they secured the signature of Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen.
“He’s matured and now he’s a very reliable player. It’s useless to hide the fact that he’s a player who will one day sign for a top club.”
Inter have been looking for a long-term replacement for captain Samir Handanovic. The Slovenian shot stopper will start for the Nerazzurri next season as well, but may be phased out over the coming seasons as he looks to retire. The Milanese club have been searching hard for the perfect replacement and believe Musso may be that player. The 26-year-old Argentine goalkeeper has kept nine clean sheets and conceded 38 goals in 27 appearances so far this season.
