Young Inter attacker Samuele Mulattieri, who is on loan at Crotone this season, has been discussing the relationship he has had with the Nerazzurri for his whole life, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media today.

Speaking during an interview with Sky Sport ahead of the Alessandria vs Crotone match at the weekend, Samuele Mulattieri stressed that he has been an Inter fan his entire life.

“I’ve always been an Inter fan, I remember my dad taking me by bus to see Inter and as a child, playing in a tournament against the Nerazzurri, I scored two goals.”

The attacker who is having a wonderful season with the Rossoblu is also an adept piano player, and he says that he has played the piano with Stefan de Vrij before.

“I was born in Milan when I was playing in Spring. In an apartment in Cormano there was a piano that was a bit old, out of tune.

“I have always liked music, then I saw some tutorials on Youtube and later I took a few lessons. I also played with De Vrij. He can do that too, but he’s better as a footballer.

“Here in Crotone I’m finding myself very well, both in the team and in the city.”

Samuele Mulattieri has scored a deeply impressive six goals in eight appearances in Serie B so far this season for Crotone, and he clearly didn’t expect to do so well straight away.

He has settled in well at the club, helped by the experience of moving to The Netherlands in the past to play for Volendam.

“I don’t know if I expected such a start, I just know that I try to improve myself every day. The choice to go to Holland, to Volendam, was inspired by the fact that the coach, Jonk, a former Inter player, really wanted me: a very nice experience in a country where I had a great time.

“Then there was the lockdown and I had to fend for myself, my mother helped me a bit via video call. I cooked simple things.”
