Inter Milan striker Marcus Thuram feels that his teammate Lautaro Martinez is an “extraordinary” captain for the Nerazzurri.
The Frenchman spoke to Ematoshi for mInter’s official YouTube channel, praising the Argentine. He also gave his thoughts on the atmosphere at the San Siro.
Thuram joined Inter just a few months ago.
However, the 26-year-old has already established himself firmly at the Nerazzurri.
Thuram is already an important fixture in the Inter starting eleven under Simone Inzaghi.
The World Cup finalist has scored plenty of important goals for the club already. And this has gone a long way towards endearing him to the Nerazzurri fanbase.
A big reason for Thuram’s early success in an Inter shirt is that he has had a strike partner who he’s fit in perfectly with.
Lautaro Martinez inherited the captain’s armband at Inter this summer.
And the Argentine has certainly justified the club putting this responsibility on his shoulders.
Martinez’s performances on the pitch, apart from being individually outstanding, have gotten the best out of his teammates. And perhaps this has not been the case for anyone more than for Thuram.
Marcus Thuram Calls Lautaro Martinez An “Extraordinary” Captain
The Inter striker said that “I have a team that helps me.”
“All my teammates help me.”
“And then there’s Lauti,” he continued. “Who’s always right there with me. He’s an extraordinary captain.”
“We try to do the best we can, and then at the end of the day, football is just a game.”
Thuram also gave his thoughts on what quality he would most like to have from legendary former Inter striker Adriano. He named the Brazilian’s “left-footed shot.”
Meanwhile, the Frenchman also opened up about whether the spectacular goal that Federico Dimarco scored against Frosinone this season was intentional.
“It was intentional,” he said of the Italian’s effort. “You have to understand the quality that he has.”
“If you look at the shot, you notice that Dimash sees the goalkeeper off his line,” Thuram noted.
“Sometimes, he even tries that in training.”
