Former Juventus coach Massimilliano Allegri also commented on the transfer speculation linking Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez to Barcelona. According to him, the player has the quality to perform well with any team.
That said, this season is indeed a beautiful season for Lautaro Martinez. Noted, the Argentine has scored 17 goals plus five assists in 37 appearances in all competitions for Inter Milan.
With such brilliant performances and the fact that he is only 22 years old, it is very natural that the player is in demand by a number of European giants.
Lately, Lautaro Martinez is more often associated with Barcelona. The Catalan giant is claimed to want to recruit the striker to become successor Luis Suarez on the front lines. Until now, this transfer speculation still continues to reverberate.
Max Allegri also spoke about the speculation. According to the former Juventus coach, Lautaro Martinez will achieve success if he joins a team like Barcelona, because of its adequate quality.
“Barca costumes have a heavy burden and every player in the world needs to have the strength and personality to wear them,”
“Lautaro has all the qualities needed to succeed. Now he is very good at Inter Milan, but we’ll see if he can prove that one day at Camp Nou. ” Allegri said to Marca.
Furthermore, the figure who also once handled AC Milan spoke about the differences between the Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A. According to him, the two competitions are quite different in several aspects.
La Liga is more entertaining, no matter the results. The team that conceded the goal continued to play as if nothing had happened. In contrast, in Italy, there is more like and much attention to match details and tactics. The brain takes priority over the heart.” He said.
Well, because Italian Serie A is a competition full of tactics, Allegri agrees with the assumption that claims that Serie A is more difficult than La Liga.
“Yes, because of what I have said before. Here, players don’t have great freedom to have fun instinctively and this sometimes has to be paid handsomely when playing,” Allegri said.
