Marcello Lippi may have a sleepless 48 hours ahead, as he attempts to put together his squad for the all important international friendly against Brazil next week.
With this in mind, the former Juve boss took some
time out of his busy schedule today, in order to participate in an interview,
where he made mention to several things, including Inter’s young defender
“I must confess that I did not know Santon prior to when
he made his debut a few weeks ago,” Lippi declared in the interview with Sky.
“I saw him play for the first time with Inter against
Roma in the Coppa Italia, and I was certainly impressed,” he added.
“In my opinion, this player has all of the potential
required to become a champion, meaning that he surely will have the chance to
play for the Azzurri one day.
“I was really impressed with his temperament, especially
considering the strength of the team, and the incredible amount of quality they
possess,” Lippi concluded.
Santon may be back in action for the Nerazzurri this
weekend, when they travel to Lecce
with the hope of further extending the lead atop of the table.
