Cremonese CEO Ariedo Braida On Inter Milan Owned Andrei Radu: “He Wasn’t Dropped From Starting XI Due To Playing Badly”
Cremonese CEO of Sport Ariedo Braida feels that Inter-owned goalkeeper Andre Radu did not do a bad job in his loan spell with the newly-promoted club.
Speaking to the Twitch channel of Italian news outlet Calciomercato.com, via FCInterNews, the executive noted that the 25-year-old Romanian international lost his place to a talented keeper in Marco Carnesecchi, and that injuries played a role in him dropping out of the starting eleven.
Radu joined Cremonese on loan with the primary intention of finding regular playing time.
In this respect, it came as a major disappointment that the Nerazzurri-owned keeper fell behind Atalanta-owned Carnesecchi in the pecking order for the Lombard team.
Accordingly, the Romanian is expected to find a new loan move for the second half of the campaign where he will be able to play regularly.
For his part, however, Braida does not feel that any of this necessarily reflects badly on Radu.
“He did very well for us, I have to say that he was in good form, but sometimes it happens that you fall behind someone who’s in better form than you in football,” the executive said of Radu.
“It’s also worth noting that he dropped out of the starting eleven initially due to injury rather than because he had been playing badly.”
