Former Inter and Argentine national team striker Hernan Crespo has shared his thoughts and feelings on Lautaro Martinez’s decision to stay with Inter.

“I was really convinced by his decision to stay at Milan,” he explained in an interview with Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport, which appeared in yesterday’s print edition of the Turin based news outlet.

“Last season, which was very troubled due to the pandemic, was the first in which the management and the Nerazzurri coaching staff decided to bet heavily on him as a starter after Maurito Icardi’s departure.”

Crespo proceeded to discuss how he felt Lautaro dealt with being made a starter and being a player who was being heavily relied upon.

“El Toro did not hesitate, facing the challenge with determination and class and demonstrating his qualities. Ditto at the beginning of the season. He started well scoring, providing assists and showing off noteworthy performances.”

Crespo, who is currently the manager of Argentine club Defensa y Justicia, then went on to reveal how compatriots Inter vice president Javier Zanetti and treble winning hero Diego Milito have spoken to him about the highly rated 23-year-old.

“I’m pleased. Both El Pupi Zanetti and Diego Milito, who saw him grow at his Racing Club, spoke to me very well about him. He is a sensational player who still has enormous room for improvement.”

During his playing career, which spanned 19 years, Crespo had three spells with Inter, totalling four years. During his time with the club the legendary Argentine made 116 appearances for the club, in which he scored a total of 45 goals and tallied eight assists.
