Ex Juventus and AC Milan defender, Gianluca Zambrotta has come out to back new signing, Achraf Hakimi to be the difference for Inter Milan this season.
Zambrotta recently revealed that Hakimi is a player that offers Antonio Conte a variety of options tactically.
According to him, Achraf has shown promise with the numbers he has delivered at his young age and he would improve Inter Milan incredibly.
He added that the ex BvB player is ready physically and he has the qualities to steal the show.
His words, “Discussing strong young players, the best foreigner will be Hakimi I think. Last season he played 45 games with 9 goals and 10 assists, in an important league like the Bundesliga,”
“For a full-back and a player of his age these are important numbers. He can be both a full-back and wing-back.
“If Conte will play five in the midfield, he can make a difference. For him it is a new league and this is an unknown, but with Antonio in terms of work and mentality, he can improve a lot.
“Physically he is ready and prepared, he has a great personality. He is powerful, he has pace but also technique, and finding a full-back that combines these qualities is not easy.”
“I chose Inter because I think the coach’s style is particularly suited to my way of playing and I can be of real help to this team,”
“We’ll try to achieve great results and certainly aim to win the Scudetto.
“Conte is a great coach, with a very competitive spirit. He has this extraordinary passion for football and transmits that to his players, fans, and everyone around the club. His motivation allows the side to be fired up for every game.
“I already played 3-5-2 at Borussia Dortmund. When the offer came, I thought this was a great opportunity for me to grow, as the fans here experience football in such a special way. I have joined a great club.”
