Italian Bundesliga Expert Elmar Bergonzini: “Inter-Linked Gladbach Defender Mathias Ginter Even Better Than Milan Skriniar”

Italian Bundesliga analyst Elmar Bergonzini feels that Borussia Monchengladbach defender Mathias Ginter would be an excellent signing for Inter.

Speaking to Italian news outlet FCInter1908, the Gazzetta dello Sport journalist compared the 28-year-old favourably to current Nerazzurri defender Milan Skriniar.

Ginter has officially announced that he does not plan to renew his current contract with Gladbach at the end of the season, and instead intends to move to a different club on a free transfer.

The Nerazzurri are one of the German’s main suitors, as they look to add quality to their backline without having to outlay a transfer fee.

There could be some questions about adjusting to a different team and league for Ginter, but Bergonzini feels that he has all the quality needed to make the step up.

Asked how Ginter would compare to the defensive options already in the Nerazzurri’s squad, the journalist stated that “I think that he’s even better than Skriniar.”

“He’s a German international,” Bergonzini added, “I can’t think of that many times in the history of football when a team has managed to sign an international of his quality on a free transfer, under the age of thirty.”

He added of Ginter that “He knows how to play very adeptly in both a four-man defense and a three-man defense, as he does in the national team, both centrally and especially on the right.”

“He has predominantly played centrally in a four-man defense, but has adapted through his tactical intelligence,” he explained.

“He is not the fastest, but neither is he slow,” he explained. “He knows how to read the game and is very quick to make tackles.”

“He is also familiar playing at right-back and, therefore, is also used to pushing up on the wing,” he continued. “For me, therefore, he would fit in well with Inzaghi’s defense.”
