Inter Milan captain Lautaro Martinez is proving to be a leader on and off the pitch, as evidenced by how he’s helping Juan Cuadrado integrate at the club.

The Argentine inherited the armband following the departure of Samir Handanovic along with other senior members of the squad.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the leadership role is prompting the striker to further strive at the club.

He has already taken his game up a notch since the start of the season. The 26-year-old already netted five goals from the first three Serie A rounds of the season.

The source also emphasizes on Lautaro’s role as a peacemaker between the club’s supporters and new signing Juan Cuadrado.

Inter Milan Captain Lautaro Martinez Is Urging The Fans To Embrace Juan Cuadrado Following His Controversial Move From Juventus

The Colombian spent eight years at Juventus before joining the Nerazzurri as a free agent last summer.

The 35-year-old had often clashed heads with Inter players during the Derby d’Italia. Thus, a section of Inter supporters remain unwilling to embrace him at the club.

Nevertheless, Cuadrado came off the bench against Fiorentina to provide a pinpoint assist to Lautaro.

This earned the Colombian a warm embrace from the Inter captain who urged the supporters to applaud the wingback.

Moreover, the source explains how Lautaro doesn’t wish to ply his trade anywhere else at the moment. He rejected lucrative proposals from Saudi Arabia as he wishes to remain at Inter and spearhead the club’s charge.
