Barella is the best Midfielder, says Collovati

Nicolo Barella is the best Midfielder according to Fulvio Collovati. He told Rai 2 that Barella is the best midfielder in Europe. This just shows the love of Collavati, who is an ex-Inter player, towards Inter Milan and Italy. Also, he said that Italy’s midfield as a whole is top-notch. Verratti and Jorginho are already regarded as some of the best in Europe. Locatelli is an emerging talent and many clubs in Europe have their eye on him.

Barella has completely transformed Inter’s midfield ever since he joined them in 2018/19. He did not have much experience before Inter as he was in Cagliari’s youth academy. After that he had a small stint at Serie B. Then Conte decided to sign him as he really liked him. He had some talk over the phone and after that he helped him to settle into the team nicely. He has been a regular starter for Inter and has barely got any Injury. Nicolo Barella played a huge part in Inter’s Scudetto victory this season.

Barella is the best Midfielder in Europe for Fulvio Collovati

Barella was the best young Italian player to be born in 1997 for two years, from 2012 to 2013. He is a mezzala which is a unique position in the pitch. It is between number 10 and winger which is around the half-space. He is technically gifted and is very creative. He positions himself well and always looks to make a progressive pass. Also, Barella links up really well with his teammates. He is always looking to get his team up but still makes a lot of interceptions and is a very good pressing agent. He has improved his finishing in recent years as well.

In the end, Collovati said that maybe only France can compete with Italy in midfield as they have Kante and Paul Pogba.
