“To me, Icardi is a very good player, worthy of wearing the Inter shirt as he is able to score 20 plus goals per season. However, he does not convey as much as character as others like Bergomi or Zanetti. He is not the type that carries you forward, he is not a captain like Batistuta at Fiorentina or Maradona at Napoli.”
Saying this was Mauro Milanese, former Inter defender, to RMC Sport.
“I had different captains at Inter who were similar. With examples, discipline and performance, they made the fans appreciate them. Icardi is a player with 20 goals per season and manages to be decisive and so he is doing his duty.”
