Former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga has suggested that Inter’s decision to sign Andre Onana on a free transfer is similar to AC Milan’s signing of Mike Maignan, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking whilst on Sky Sport, via FCInter1908, Walter Zenga suggested that the current Ajax goalkeeper and AC Milan’s goalkeeper are similar players.
The two young goalkeepers are very athletic and aggressive in their style of keeping the opposition out. Mike Maignan was signed to replace Gianluigi Donnarumma when the Italian moved to Paris Saint Germain on a free transfer.
“Inter have made a deal with Andre Onana not only economically, anticipating the competition from other clubs, but also because it closely follows Maignan.”
Walter Zenga also discussed AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho who suffered a 3-1 away defeat against AC Milan on Thursday night.
The Portuguese coach has been criticised heavily for AS Roma’s form this season but Walter Zenga feels that the coach is not past his best and thinks the team will improve a lot if they sign Sergio Oliveira from Porto.
“To those who say he is past it, I say that football has no age, Mourinho always has had passion and ability even in defeats. He has always accepted defeats with great attention. If he signs Sergio Oliveira, Roma make another step forward.”
