Speaking to FCIN, Beto Yaque, agent of Lautaro Martinez, talks about the first season in the Inter shirt of his client.
“He is doing better. He told me that he has recovered from his injury and that he is training with the team. Everything suggests that he is ready to play in the next league match. Lautaro only thinks about playing. He is doing well, he is happy. The goal against Milan was very important for him and for the team. He feels loved by everyone: from teammates, fans to each employee of this club. You notice it more and more everyday that he is happy and I am too.”
Are you already working on extending his contract and removing the release clause?
“We are calm. Lautaro is a very young but elite player. If Inter want they can contact us for deal with this situation and given that they have always treated us well, we are always here to collaborate with them.”
How do you see him paring up with Icardi who has had a few issues?
“I do not want to get into the specifics of this situation because we are talking about personal things that are not my business. This is why I tell you that I am only interested in seeing Lautaro on the pitch. My idea, that of the player himself and his family, is always the same: to see him winning in the colors of Inter. Since the first phone call, the goal has always been to achieve great things and make history with this club. Captain of Inter? He was at Racing. He has strong character and temperament and can indeed wear the armband. But that’s going to take time. He only came this season. Let him grow, the rest will be seen…
“I have always trusted him. I know him very well. He just needed continuity. Today, it is a reality and he deserves it. I talked to him right after the Milan derby. His happiness was uncontrollable. Lautaro was very happy for achieving something that he had always dreamed of: scoring in an important match and winning it, giving the joy and three points to his fans. We are talking about an enormous joy here. He will also score against Juve, at least that’s what I hope for. He is a youngster who is reaping the fruits of hard work. He deserves all the good things that are happening to him. He has other dreams to fulfill such as a call-up to play for Argentina. He must continue on this path.”
