Former Argentina striker Jorge Burruchaga feels that the level that Inter forward Joaquin Correa has reached over the course of his career so far has exceeded expectations.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper in an interview published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews, Burruchaga gave a complimentary assessment of the Nerazzurri forward’s career progression, alongside a number of other Argentine internationals.
Correa has had a career progression that has not exactly been linear, but he has grown in reputation to the point where he is a regular part of the Argentine international setup, left out of the current World Cup squad only due to injury.
Burruchaga notes how the 28-year-old is one of a number of Argentines who did not always have an obvious path to the top, but who have grown in quality.
The Inter forward, who has spent time with the likes of Sampdoria, Sevilla, and Lazio before joining the Nerazzurri, has now become a player of a very high reputation.
“There are players I never thought would reach such a high level, like Cristian Romero,” Burruchaga said.
“Nico Gonzalez is another one, and then Joaquin Correa at Inter, Angel Correa at Atletico,” he went on.
