Former Cesena Technical Director Rino Foschi has spoken about two current figures with Inter, and his interactions with them while working for the Emilia-Romagna-based club.

Speaking to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport in an interview published in yesterday’s print edition, the subject of Nerazzurri midfielder Stefano Sensi came up, as did that of new Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi.

During his time with the now-defunct club, Foschi saw many talented players come and go, some of whom went on to become important players at major Serie A clubs.

Inter’s Stefano Sensi began his career with Cesena, and the former Technical Director speaks of how he is not surprised that the 25-year-old is currently a highly-regarded figure and a Scudetto winner, along with Franck Kessie who spent a season on loan with the club and now stars for Inter’s city rivals AC Milan.

On the pair, Foschi said:

“Am I surprised at how well they are doing? Absolutely not, it was immediately visible that they had out-of-the-ordinary qualities.”

Foschi also speaks about the situation of Nerazzurri head coach Simone Inzaghi, whom he notes nearly arrived at Cesena earlier in his career, prior to enjoying success with Lazio’s first team:

“At the time he was in Lazio’s Primavera side, Inzaghi was very close to coming to coach Cesena in Serie B.”
