Young Inter Milan defender Giacomo Stabile will be dreaming of making his debut in the coming weeks.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the mounting injury crisis at the Nerazzurri could open the door for the 18-year-old to get out on the pitch.
At the moment, Inter are in the midst of a full-blown injury crisis.
The Nerazzurri are currently without all of Alessandro Bastoni, Benjamin Pavard, Stefan de Vrij, and Denzel Dumfries due to injury.
Bastoni may be on the way back. But the other three should still be out for two or three more weeks.
Therefore, there will be a need to cover the defensive positions in other ways.
There are a number of options for doing so.
For one thing, young German defender Yann Bisseck is likely set to play a bigger role.
Then, there is the possibility of creative solutions. Inter coach Simone Inzaghi played Carlos Augusto out of position in the defensive line against Napoli, and the Brazilian fared quite well.
But another solution could be represented by one outstanding player from the club’s academy.
Inter Youngster Giacomo Stabile Could Get Opportunity Amid Injury Crisis
Teenage defender Stabile has already made his non-competitive Inter debut. He featured in a preseason friendly against Albanian club Egnatia.
And the 18-year-old has also been called up to a couple matchday squads for Inter’s senior team this season.
But Stabile has not yet gotten out on the pitch for the senior team.
Rather, the teenager has been regularly featuring for Christian Chivu’s Primavera team.
However, Tuttosport notes, there is every chance of Stabile doing so at some point during the next few weeks.
Naturally, it is not at all likely that the Italian would play from the start.
However, Stabile could come on as a substitute in order to give one of the senior defenders a rest.
Meanwhile, Tuttosport also name 18-year-old Italian defender Mike Aidoo as another academy player who could get his chance thanks to the ongoing injury crisis.
