Vieri: "Regardless of age, Godin is exceptional defender and great signing. Together with Skriniar and De Vrij, Inter are building on foundation of steel"
Speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Christian Vieiri praises Inter for the signing of Diego Godin.
“The club signed him for nothing. Great signing regardless of being 33 years old. Exceptional defender, with very high level of experience. He, Skriniar, De Vrij are old-fashioned defenders those that are excel in close battle. Yes, Inter now have a great foundation of steel.”
Perfect for Conte then?
“I think Antonio will start with three men in the back and having a wall like that is not bad at all. Then, he will also need more on the market, in the attack, but this is a great start building on the growth that Spalletti began.”
But Juve and Napoli also have high class defense?
“Yes, there’s no doubt. They have players who really how how to mark the box. For 15 years, it was difficult to find real defenders.”
