Long interview granted by Diego Milito , former Inter striker, now sports director of Racing Avellaneda, at La Gazzetta dello Sport. Inevitably speaking first of all of Lautaro Martinez , a talent that came to the Nerazzurri thanks to the Prince: «I called Pupi, I told him a boy, it was Lautaro. He already knew him, he wanted to know more, we talked about it other times. I told him firmly: "With him go safe". And here we are ». Ok. But aren't you surprised by the high performance? "Honestly no, why should I be? I was convinced even then that he would do everything he is showing that he can do. And I add: he has great room for improvement, the limits can only be set by him. I heard what Conte said, I agree with him. It only depends on Lautaro to understand where he wants to go. But he can serenely become a top player ». He spoke of room for improvement. Which ones are they? "One above all, temperament. An attacker must take fewer yellow cards, I told him this in person. I remember that last season also jumped a game for sum of admonitions (in Europa League, ed): a great team like Inter must pay attention to these things. But he has time to understand it, it is part of the maturity process not yet completed ». What were the difficulties of last year due to? "I don't know if there were problems with the past coach, I don't think so. Probably he simply had to get used to a new championship and new habits: time is not the same for everyone, but I don't think it took too much … ». Tell us about your relationship? "We often feel, even if we don't stress it every day … We have a wonderful feeling, I've known him since he was very young, he started by replacing me … I saw him as a great footballer, I wasn't wrong". Will he repeat his own journey? "The greatest hope that I can give him is that one day you will come to experience the same emotions that I felt, that may leave something to remember to society. I feel proud to be part of Inter's history. He has everything to do it ». Unless Messi takes it to Barcelona … «The feeling with Leo is natural, we see with the naked eye that they have a good relationship, the great players are looking for each other. I don't know how much true there is in the interest of Barça, but it is natural that I can like it. But I do know for a fact that Lautaro is very happy to be at Inter ». From striker to striker: have your say on Lukaku. «He leaves me good impressions, the numbers speak for him, he is a great striker. He is there, there is also Sanchez now injured: the Inter in front is well covered ». He forgot Esposito … "I saw him come in with Dortmund. It is clear that he has something different, that boy. It made a great impression on me, it has so much quality. But he is young, he is a 2002: don't worry, try to learn and enjoy the good fortune of being trained by Conte, perfect for growing ». From Argentine to Argentine: with Icardi is it really bad? "I say it ended well. Beyond the judgments that can be made from outside, the farewell was a bargain for everyone. For Mauro, who went to Paris and is doing very well. But also for Inter, who replaced it correctly ". Handanovic was his companion, today he is the captain. She could almost remain so … "There are also Ranocchia and D'Ambrosio of my Inter … Samir is extraordinary as a boy and goalkeeper, a very serious professional. And I'm happy that he's still a protagonist in Inter ». Who or what was surprised by Inter? «From Sensi, he did not in the least blame the jump from Sassuolo to a big club. And he is doing very well. Then also Barella … ». Give it to Inter, another shot at Lautaro? «Difficult … But point out this name: Mati Zaracho, summoned to the Under 23 Argentina, even in the largest selection. He is very great ».
