Julio Cruz: "Professionalism and commitment: that's what makes Icardi world class"
“I am very happy for his first goal with our national team. Really. Because he deserved it and because shows one thing: his improvement and growth over the years is the direct result that he has always done things with professionalism and commitment.”
These are the words of Julio Cruz in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport talking about Mauro Icardi.
“The fact that he is the captain of Inter, one that has been able to give consistency in performances, showing his strength in the Champions League and now the national team. The combination of everything here makes him a world class player. I am convinced that scoring for Argentina for the first time will allow him to grow even more.
“Mauro is always ready. Just call him and he is there. He may not have the ball for an hour but when you give it to him, he will strike. He is always there. Over the years, he has refined his ability to know where and how to be, to know how to wait for the right time and then exploit it to the maximum.”
