Flashback from Inter-Roma. Nicolò Zaniolo leads the bus of regrets. Politano secretly conceals a Giallorossi regret, while Juan Jesus and Santon remain anchored to the memory of the Nerazzurri mediocrity
INTER-ROME WITH INVERTED SHIRTS
4 STORIES – Inter-Roma is a challenge full of amarcord, of nostalgic intersections and passionate memories. At San Siro a match will be staged between two teams deeply renewed in staff and credentials. Antonio Conte is squeezing his custom-built car at full speed, while Paulo Fonseca is still working on the aerodynamic set-up of his car. The Inter of the only ex ( Matteo Politano ) will try to go beyond his emergency, the Rome with three ex ( Juan Jesus , Davide Santon and Nicolò Zaniolo ) wants to show the horses of his own engine.
EX ROMA IN THE INTER (1)
POLITANO – Theoretically he too would be too much in the list of ex, since he never made his debut in the Roma jersey. A long apprenticeship on the smaller stages, with a promotion in Serie A touched with Pescara and the subsequent explosion with the Sassuolo shirt. In the shadow, but not too much, of a stuttering Domenico Berardi , Politano shows off a steady but steady performance upgrade. The peaks of incisiveness under the goal arrive when Giuseppe Iachini decides to bring him closer to the penalty area. But he will never return to Rome. The arrival in the Nerazzurri consecrates him as one of the few able to drag the cart when the wheels, due to mutiny by Mauro Icardi , show signs of abating. Given for sure in the summer, his future in the Nerazzurri remains a question mark. And yet, Politano still retains the dream of returning to the capital and establishing itself as a protagonist. Rome could think about closing a circle that began in the Trigoria fields and never really reached its natural conclusion.

EX INTER IN ROME (3)
JUAN JESUS – It was said a great deal about him. Arrived in the Nerazzurri as world champion Sub20 with Brazil , it had to be the shot of Inter to obscure the growth of Thiago Silva in Milan. A muted start, enhanced by the excellent performances, always with the green-gold jersey, at the London Olympics in 2012. Brazil of Neymar Jr and Alex Sandro , among others, lost in the final against the surprise Mexico. Juan Jesus returns to the Nerazzurri with many certainties and leads Andrea Stramaccioni's rearguard to violate the Juventus Stadium on a November evening. From there on, it ends up in trance showing all its technical and attention limits. Gradually becoming a burden, Inter manages to get rid of it with an adjustment of eight million received just from Rome. In Giallorossi he will be among the protagonists of the heroic comeback against Barcelona. A blinding glimmer in a sea of pale mediocrity.

SANTON – It would have been better if he had remained a child. Or the "Child", as José Mourinho used to call him. He has dirtied his immaculate debut, in the Nerazzurri shirt, with a series of blue pencil mistakes that are hard to forget. A steady decline that ended up celebrating his farewell almost as a liberation for the fans. Few had digested his sale, perhaps premature, to Newcastle for a handful of millions of euros (in 2011, ed ). Santon's return to the Nerazzurri, strongly desired by Roberto Mancini , had brought to light the memories of a past that had actually faded. He left the back door without laurels or applause. Better to remember him with his clean face, his socks up to his knees and his hair shot in the wind, while he closes the door in the face of a Cristiano Ronaldo still in a Manchester United shirt.

ZANIOLO – He didn't even have time to tread the lawn of San Siro as landlord to show us what he was capable of. The exchange with Radja Nainggolan ended up inexplicably in a valley of tears. His premature farewell brought back the demons of the early 2000s: with Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf first, and Fabio Cannavaro then leading the list of decidedly risky market moves. Zaniolo has linked himself to the falls of Nainggolan, fueling the metastasis of regret with every burning acceleration on the Olimpico bands. While the Belgian was struggling with a crisis of identity, first, and then of athletic condition. Inter's regret for his (ex) golden boy is surrounded by "ifs" and "buts", sublimated by the unpredictability of the circumstances that accelerated the explosion. Mancini was one of the first to believe in his potential and he will collect dividends, probably, during the European vagabond of 2020. Inter, meanwhile, has stopped looking at Zaniolo like an old teenage crush and has meshed with the twelfth gear (like championship victories). In the hope of leaving behind the numbers of a boy who, with the raging of the emergency, will return to be coveted like a shining apple just fallen from his fruit tree.
