Former Inter Primavera striker Matteo Rover feels that his time with the Nerazzurri was very beneficial to him.
Speaking to the Ex LGI column in TuttuMercatoWeb, the 22-year-old spoke about his time in the Inter Primavera setup and also stated that it was a formative experience for him both as a footballer and as a person.
Rover now plays for Serie C side Sudtirol, but he came through the ranks at Inter where he won the Primavera championship twice, in 2017 and 2018.
The young striker experienced success at the youth level and then also went on loan to the likes of Vicenza Virtus and Podernone before joining Sudtirol on loan.
The 22-year-old found the right environment at Sudtirol and made his stay at the club a permanent one, where he now plays his football.
Even though he was unable to make an impression in the Nerazzurri first team, Rover credits his experiences in the Primavera side as being formative for the career he now has with Podernone.
“I moved to the Nerazzurri in 2015, when I was sixteen,” he explained. “I spent one year in the Under-17 side and two in the Primavera.”
“Those three years improved me a lot as a player and as a person,” he went on. “I have sharpened my technical abilities and made great progress as a player.”
