Materazzi: “Lautaro? He decides. He is the king of Milan, like Barella and Bastoni”

“He knows very well that he cannot be the father of all the boys, but he is the captain.” Reached in London by SportMediaset, Marco Materazzi talk like this about Lautaro Martinezwho is preparing to sign the contract renewal with theInter: “He knows the weight he has in the dressing room. Then I think it’s a game of parties. He will decide and not those who want to make him choose other paths. He wants to be the king of Milan and he is; Lautaro, like Nicolò Barella and Alessandro Bastoni, are guys who can walk around Milan with their heads held high and the crown on their heads.”

How did you feel about the second star?
“Beautiful. It’s strange to say it because we of the old guard are not saying we should be jealous, we should suffer a little. Instead I was their first fan, they put a family, a team on the pitch. Already last year when we reached the final of the Champions League in Istanbul, where what we all dreamed of escaped us; this year they closed the circle by creating extra motivation in themselves, not an easy thing to do after a lost final.

Extra also because people who thought they were irreplaceable left and instead those who arrived proved to be stronger than those who left. The team helped them a lot to integrate and have a super championship.”
