Inter youngster Filip Stankovic has suggested that young players are given less of an opportunity in Italy than they are in The Netherlands, according to a report in the Dutch media.
Whilst speaking to the official channel of Volendam via FCInternews, the Dutch club where Filip Stankovic is currently on loan, the young goalkeeper said that Dutch football is more development based and in Italy it is more about just winning the matches.
“In the Netherlands they play more football, in Italy they play more to win. In the Netherlands, they play to teach and learn the game of football, which is a very positive thing because it gives even the youngest players a chance to play, a very important thing, in Italy they don’t give much space to young players.”
The youngster has had a mixed time at Volendam so far having shown off his skills but also struggled with some injuries.
The son of Dejan Stankovic also managed to record a clean sheet in his last game for Volendam which the team won. He took particular joy from keeping the opponent out all game.
“I’m happy with my performance and that of the team. It was a very difficult match, it was very important to win and get three points away from home. We did a great job, we even managed to keep a clean sheet.”
Filip Stankovic has made eight appearances for Volendam across two competitions and had managed an impressive four clean sheets in that time in goal.
