Inter couldn’t resist the temptation to heap yet more praise on Nicolo Barella on Monday following an assist from the Italian Football Federation.
Barella starred in the Nerazzurri’s 2-0 win at Fiorentina in Serie A on Friday, scoring a glorious opening goal midway through the first half.
The 24-year-old received the highest average rating of any player in the league last weekend, with all three of Italy’s big sports papers – Gazzetta dello Sport, Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport – awarding him 7.5/10.
Responding to a tweet from the Italian national team’s official account, highlighting the feat, Inter simply said: “Baller!”
Baller 👊💥 https://t.co/NuYCRgsScB
