Former Inter and Uruguay striker Ruben Sosa has given his thoughts on the prospects of two Uruguayan players currently at the Nerazzurri.

In an interview published in yesterday’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, the 55-year-old predicted that young striker Martian Satriano can be a great success at Inter, while he believes that midfielder Matias Vecino can still be an important player at the club despite setbacks.

Sosa spent three seasons at Inter after joining from Lazio in 1992, scoring 44 goals in Serie A, and he believes that Martin Satriano can similarly make a major impact up front for the Nerazzurri.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a successful campaign with the Primavera side last season, and after his form in pre-season there are even suggestions that he could join up with the Nerazzurri first team for next season.

Sosa believes that the best thing for the 20-year-old’s career path, however, would be a loan move that would maximize his game time.

The former Nerazzurri and Lazio striker spoke highly of compatriot Martin Satriano.

“He is a little star. Now he just needs to gain experience, but he has all the credentials to become a great champion. Satriano is not afraid of anything, he comes from the street and has now proved himself.

“Now he just needs to have the opportunity to play, which is why I think Inter should lend him to a team that lets him play and pamper him a little.”

On Vecino, he also showed optimism despite the fact that the 29-year-old was not able to contribute regularly under Antonio Conte due to his injury struggles.

“Vecino’s slowdown is due to the physical problems he is having, there is no question of this. Matias is a player who knows how to make a difference when he enters the pitch, he can still be useful to the Nerazzurri.”
