Speaking to the press outside the Integration Heros charity match at San Siro organized by former teammate Samuel Eto’o, as reported by FCInter1908, Chivu explained that his primary goal working with the Primavera team is to prepare young players for life in the senior game.

“All clubs have this goal,” he said of the importance of developing yout, “all youth sectors work to develop the young players and bring them through to the first team. This is the goal of all clubs. I’m always proud of my young guys.”
