    Well, I don’t know him, so I looked him up and found nothing impressive in statistics.
    16 appearances (1114 minutes), 1 goal and 2 assists 7 yellow cards.
    I don’t see him advancing us through CL group stage, but whatever.

      He’s considered to be a real prospect – Very highly regarded in Italy.

        He can be great for all I know. I’d rather see him and other young players instead of 29ish-never-been-good players. We’ll see I guess.

    Never heard of him but as Peter also said, rather unproven youngsters than old hasbeens

    Marotta should stop signing youth players for a while !!!

      I think our squad is getting older – a few youth players would be good

        Agree with you, but at this moment, we are expected to succeed in CL, we need to boost our line-up with quality players

          You’re right, i hate the idea of Evra/Eto’o/Drogba. We have a lot of experienced players in the squad. Now we need that extra quality. the difference makers. Sanchez etc. . good to have you on the board Ahmed.

            This post exactly. We have no strong influence on the final 3rd. Im hoping for a top class winger or striker. Sanchez, Mandzukic, Dzeko, etc. players going into their prime that wont just be a trinket for the hood but horsepower for the engine.

    I’ll confuse him with Storari :/
