Diego Martinez, head coach of Argentine team Tigre, feels that Inter-owned striker Facundo Colidio has the talent to make an impact both in his current loan spell and in the future.

Speaking to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, the coach emphasized that the young striker still has what it takes to keep developing and grow into a top player in his position.

Colidio’s experiences since joining Inter from Boca Juniors’ youth academy in 2017 has not been straightforward, with the 22-year-old having spent time at Sint-Truiden in Belgium before a loan move to Austria Vienna in the summer fell through.

Bureaucratic details meant that the loan deal couldn’t be completed in time, and so the Argentine was left unable to play at a club as he is not ready for the Nerazzurri first team.

Colidio made the switch to newly-promoted Tigre in his native Argentine league during the January window, and the club’s coach feels that he has the tools to help them out.

“We signed him because he is a young striker with a bright future ahead of him,” Martinez said. “He can adapt to various positions in attack.”

“And we’ve known about him from an early age, from his training with Boca,” he continued, “he’s a great young man boy and an exemplary professional.”

And of Colidio’s stop-start experiences in European football, the coach said that “He’s going through a logical process and remains very young today.”

“For me, what he has already experienced in Europe will help him to mature as a footballer,” he added. “And you’ll see that he’ll grow even more this year.”
