Barella never stops improving says legendary Italian goalkeeper Dino Zoff. Furthermore, Barella has proved to be an irreplaceable asset in the midfield. The Italian footballer is a youth product from Cagliari Calcio. Since Inter wanted to boost their midfield, they got Barella for €40 million who was then the captain at Cagliari. However, Barella’s move did not make much of a difference in his performance and he kept getting better. Ever since Barella has been on top of Conte’s team list. The Italian has been impressive with his contribution on both sides of the field.
He captained Cagliari at 20 and also became the youngest player to wear the armband in 2017. He has ever since established himself as one of the best midfielders in the country. It is hard to settle under Conte, especially in the midfield as we have seen in the case of Eriksen. But he came in and worked on his form and settled into Conte’s system. In his first season with Inter, he made 39 appearances across all competitions, proving his importance for Conte.
Barella never stops improving, he keeps Conte happy
Despite Inter’s multiple struggles in the midfield last season, one player that remained constant was Barella. He has been a blessing for Inter in the midfield as he has been in form and held the fort as a lone warrior. He is not only good in his position, but his leadership skills are also a plus. Thus, he is in the eyes of the management to handle captaincy after Samir Handanovic.
Furthermore, Dino Zoff not only praised Barella but the whole squad for their contribution to the club. However, he did not seem surprised by their performances as they have got what it takes. he also went on to say that their focus at the moment is Serie A. This justifies their six-point lead on top of the Serie A table.
