I dont expect him to be a guaranteed starter.

Benassi, Del Piero, and Acampora is a talented midfield trio. I don't see where we fit Olsen into that without disrupting it, or a formation change.

Nonsense. Olsen has a youtube vid showing off his juggling skills, he must be an automatic starter.

Saw the kid play quite a few times with the Dane U-17 team, in both the European and World cup U-17 tournaments.

He was, in my opinion, one of the standout midfielders in the entire tournaments - in the World cup a little less - but in the Euros he was just fantastic.

He's pretty physical, kinda slow and heavy at times, but he's a type of player that always thinks even when he's not with the ball. He always likes the ball in his feet to dictate the game and control it - he was very good and I remember being impressed with how he always makes himself available for the pass, move to a new position to receive it after making the easy pass, helping the game flow so well.
He reads the game very well, and is so calm on the ball and handles it with ease that was impressed to see from a then 16 year old kid. Really plays beyond his years.

Both him and his counterpart, Christian Norgaard(another good player on his own right - I don't know if someone bought him though I assume they did - but if not then he should absolutely be the next target for us and would be a welcomed cheap addition), were very tidy players and moved the ball extremely well with great technique especially with the ball close to their feet.


Question mark regarding him would be if he can show a little more commitment on the defensive side of the pitch - I mean when a player is close to his he would try to get the ball back with his strength and isn't afraid to slide to a tackle - but if my memory serves me right, and it's been a while since I saw him - he's not that super energetic type who will chase players down and could appear lazy at times.

He's absolutely a first team player talent in my opinion, and he's one of the few in our Primavera I expect to make the jump.
His passing ability and the way he organizes the game were brilliant for a kid his age - lack of speed is annoying, but his physical attributes make up for it.


It's a shame we didn't act on both him, Christian Norgaard, and especially his then teammate Viktor Fischer right after the U-17 Euros. Fischer was snapped up by Ajax, and he is just an amazing footballer that will be worth alot of money in the not so far future.

I'm sure we could have picked Fischer then very cheaply - now the next time he'll be sold it will be surely for above 10 million euro, if not more.

30 Sep 12, 11:23
I could be wrong but I Believe he's gotten the assist for every goal that has been scored whenever he's been on the pitch for us?

stanko 05
30 Sep 12, 11:57
Yes, all but the Tassi assist to Forte the last week I think.

He's a great passer of the ball in almost any range - especially the long-medium ones iirc. He knows how to play simple - but at times he can produce some great passes to break the defense.

.h.
30 Sep 12, 12:29
i believe we fielded him as a deep lying playmaker against Varese? I didn't see the match - infact I haven't had the chance to see him play yet - but does he suit a Pirlo-esque role? It seems from the descriptions that some sort of cross between Pirlo and a more box-to-box player is how he handles it at the moment?

---------- Post added at 12:29 ---------- Previous post was at 12:23 ----------

tbh, our primavera midfield is fucking world class.

I think Acampora, Olsen, Benassi, Del Piero, Duncan, Tassi are all top class midfielders. Tassi is, obviously, a year behind the rest of them - he's 'this year's Benassi' as such - the development squad for next year.

Acampora is a great trequartista in my opinion. Different to, say, Bessa last year (Jizz), but more like Sneijder? Great on the ball, good vision, good attacking player.

Olsen seems like he could be a top class deep playmaker/all round playmaker in the making

Benassi is a really good defensive midfielder with some playmaking skills too - reminds me a little bit of an early Gerrard (back when he played a lot deeper)

Del Piero seems like a really tidy possession midfielder so far, I haven't seen so much of him yet but he seems quite good at the passing game which is something we really lack

Duncan is Duncan, enough said. Great defensive midfielder with some box to box skills too.





That's before you add in Crisetig, Romano....


I think the defense seems kinda weak (Though, i will admit, they've really impressed me so far compared to expectations) - attack is good but not very stable at the moment, lots of rotation to date... but midfield is top class.

thatdude
30 Sep 12, 12:32
I would compare his style to Motta. I have only seen what he's done for us so far. Never his past. However, when I saw his style of receiving and passing, dictating, and still being a bit physical I thought it screamed Motta. Perhaphs he's a bit more direct with his passing, hence the assists. But the way he goes about using his limited physical attributes (not a super athelete) while still making a difference reminds me of Thiago.

stanko 05
30 Sep 12, 12:44
Maybe not as deep while on the ball, and a bit further into the central midfield cause he can also advance with the ball at times and playt the 1-2 very well - but yes i'd say so. He needs to be the one directing play and having the most touches in my opinion.

It's a problem in that position cause you need things to run around you, and receive the ball alot to dictate the game - so coming into a new team in the middle of the season, and especially a new country etc - it would be understandable that things won't go as smoothly in terms of the fluidity of the game as you have the language barrier, teammates don't trust you as much, you're not as assertive etc.

From the parts of the games I saw where he started, it seems just that, that he's at times skipped in the building stage of the offense - he's also not as demanding of the ball which is also natural.

Also our Primavera isn't really about having the ball and passing it around so much and tends to send those long balls to Forte/wingers and try start things from there.

I still think that the thing he will need to work on and improve moving forward is on the defensive side of the pitch. He needs to have more awareness to his tactical position - sharpen up his defensive attributes in terms of breaking up plays and winning back the ball.

It's not that he's a liability or anything, but still that's where i'd say an improvement is needed.

---------- Post added at 12:44 ---------- Previous post was at 12:38 ----------

The guy I would say reminds of Motta the most in our Primavera is Benassi. He has a much better and more felt presence in the midfield to me(defensively) - Olsen doesn't yet imo.

.h.
30 Sep 12, 12:49
yes, the motta comparison is bang on the one i wanted to make for benassi, just couldnt put a player to the idea.


i agree, but i dont understand why that's what we do with the primavera.

we have some great ball playing midfielders...

you could easily set up;

... benassi

olsen .... del piero

....... acampora ........

...forte ......... garritano

play it direct, to the feet, and not fucking long ball. we could have a great team there. i dont see why we dont do that, ffs

Lets hope some of these deeper mids coming through can cut it later on... because we need something in midfield... from somewhere.....

stanko 05
30 Sep 12, 16:50
I would say that Benassi, if only for his size and shooting ability alone, has a pretty good chance to become a solid Serie A player.

Might not happen in Inter, but surely somewhere else.

Because I am Danish, I have kwown about Patrick Olsen for some years now. He is without doubt one of the biggest Danish talents at the moment, and we have made a great signing with him. We got him for almost a piece of candy, and I know that many Brøndby supporters expected the club to sell him for many millions in few years. So we signed him just at the right time. I promise you that within a few years, you will all be excited about him, because he is very gifted. He just needs some time to adjust to the Italian life and football, then he will become very important for the First Team, believe me!

He has been playing for the U-19 and played a full 90 the last game they played on Nov 26, a 3-0 win over Finland. They are through to the next round winning all their games.

BTW I don't know if this has been posted before but he's not just some random prospect picked from a YouTube video. He was selected as one of the prospects to watch by UEFA.COM from the U-17 Finals:


Patrick Olsen (midfielder, Denmark)
Viktor Fischer, soon to be an AFC Ajax player, may often have stolen the headlines, but Brøndby IF prospect Olsen played an understated yet pivotal role for Denmark, always showing great calmness on the ball alongside Christian Nørgaard.

Link (http://www.uefa.com/under17/news/newsid=1630877.html)

Edit: I just went through the thread and found that people already knew a lot about him. I remembered some making a joke about his YouTube video for some reason.

I went to a coaching seminar with the Danish Under-19's Coach, Thomas Frank, and had a chance to ask him about our Danish Primavera-players. He was very impressed with how Patrick had taken on the challenge of a new country and how well he had performed in one of the World's best Under-19's teams. He is a very strong and determined player mentally, which can often be a flaw with Danish players, who are often more friendly and conflict-avoiding. Patrick is seen as one of the brigthest players in an extremely good Under-19's generation including Fischer and Andersen of Ajax, Laursen of Juventus and Nørgaard of Hamburg.

Do you think Patrick will go out on loan next season? I guess he should still be eligible for the Primavera, but perhaps he already has Serie B quality.

(I should add that Thomas Frank was also the co-commentator during Inter-Tottenham on Danish TV and actually repeated the praise for Inter's youth work, just for the record)

I think he'll train with the 1st team in the pre-season and from there decide if they gonna loan him. He has been in training with the 1st team regularly now.

Well yes and no. Thomas Frank had both Olsen and Knudsen on the Under 17s squad, but Knudsen is from 1995 and thus a bit young for the Under 19s squad, because the 1994 vintage is considered quite extra-ordinary by Danish standards.

So apparently some drama...
Olsen is pissed off he didnt debut - because apparently there are non-playing reasons for it - we have to pay Brondby 500k if he debuted before the end of the season.

If this is true, that's pathetic by our management - and its exactly the sort of mismanagement that results in young players wanting to leave.

20 May 13, 11:39
Let him leave, who does he think he is?

Players with such ego like Balotelli and Arnautovic, shall never be associated with a team of saints like ours. Yes, they have talent, but our players have great talent and great attitude, raw talents don't qualify.

If anything, this guy is probably just another Christoph Knausmuller.

Guney
20 May 13, 12:03
So fucking pissed that he didn't get his debut -_-. Why didn't Inter loan him to a serie B club like Novara so he could get SOME playing time. Now we have to pull out another 500k out of Branca's ass. Doesnt matter though, he would have bought another Rocchi with that money.

.h.
20 May 13, 12:20
I'm not sure if you're trolling or not, Wallace, but here we go

There's a difference between "I'm bigger than the club" and "Apparently there are economic reasons I couldn't debut". If we are influencing coach's decisions because of financial reasons, that's also very worrying.

Moreover, I dont think this is an attitude problem - he's certainly entitled to be pissed off he didnt play because of that. We've already shown a lot of faith in him - in having spent 800k euros on him already - and he was UEFA's best U17 player a couple of seasons ago.

Pajo
20 May 13, 13:27
What's so important anyway? 15-20 minutes of first team football is important to Olsen? Wouldn't mean SHIT for him or the team, bar maybe personal feelings.

I would've done the same, if i didn't plan to play him :D 500k in wain for some boys feelings. Bullshit, he, and you are overacting.

Even Benassi didn't get chances while half of the midfield is injured ffs, you really believe that's why Olsen didnt debut? :lol:

.h.
20 May 13, 13:40
I believe it probably has a large impact. We're completely fucking tight on money, and to be honest, Olsen's been more impressive than Benassi for the youth team this year.

junior55
20 May 13, 15:42
I do believe that those 500k were the reason of him not getting his debut but anyway i can understand it.

It's not that we lacked in creativity in midfield and didn't give a chance to Olsen. He wouldn't have got any secure place in the first team with Kuzmanovic and Kovacic there, so paying 500k just to give this boy the joy of 1st team action for some minutes wouldn't have any sense.

This was his 1st year with inter so he must be patient . He will have all summer to convince the new coach(hopefully , and hopefully not mazzari :P) that he deserves to be part of the 1st team roster and if that happens no one will mind to pay those 500k .

- He stepped over some internal rules, when we were in France last (at the end of March, ed.). It's not about drinking or city tours. I can make this very clear. We had some internal rules that players should be in the hotel, and there he was outside the hotel. But I can make it absolutely clear that there was no alcohol, drinking or anything, explains Thomas Frank.

To be honest i never say bad things about our player, but have to admit he is done he slows us down so much he is making inter look bad, its not a jocke and its really bad for the future for the young players such as Olsen to develop, but sadly he does have a grib in the training ground some sort of favor over others and its wrong, and he have to step out otherwise we will not be able to compete anything next seaon.

He is not our best DM because he's not a DM. Not even close.

People just aren't used to CM's who can actually pass and put a tackle in here and there. Can't say I blame you we haven't had one since Motta.

02 Aug 13, 13:13
Are you sure he is'nt a DM? when he entered he always played behind the other midfielders, and I also remember that in the primavera he mainly played as one of the 2 midfielders in a 4-2-3-1.

02 Aug 13, 14:19
He's a pure CM. He is playing a deeper position because that what the formation called for. He did play as part of the 2 in Primavera but he wasn't the destroyer. We didn't really play a DM this year. Think of him like Motta not DM but holding midfielder who can pass from deep.

CM or DM is arbitrary, fact is they will occupy the same slot in the formation. Essentially, our only DM at the moment is Mudingayi.

I agree though. Olsen deserves to start the next few friendlies and we'll see how it goes.

Saw the kid play quite a few times with the Dane U-17 team, in both the European and World cup U-17 tournaments.

He was, in my opinion, one of the standout midfielders in the entire tournaments - in the World cup a little less - but in the Euros he was just fantastic.

He's pretty physical, kinda slow and heavy at times, but he's a type of player that always thinks even when he's not with the ball. He always likes the ball in his feet to dictate the game and control it - he was very good and I remember being impressed with how he always makes himself available for the pass, move to a new position to receive it after making the easy pass, helping the game flow so well.
He reads the game very well, and is so calm on the ball and handles it with ease that was impressed to see from a then 16 year old kid. Really plays beyond his years.

Both him and his counterpart, Christian Norgaard(another good player on his own right - I don't know if someone bought him though I assume they did - but if not then he should absolutely be the next target for us and would be a welcomed cheap addition), were very tidy players and moved the ball extremely well with great technique especially with the ball close to their feet.

Question mark regarding him would be if he can show a little more commitment on the defensive side of the pitch - I mean when a player is close to his he would try to get the ball back with his strength and isn't afraid to slide to a tackle - but if my memory serves me right, and it's been a while since I saw him - he's not that super energetic type who will chase players down and could appear lazy at times.

He's absolutely a first team player talent in my opinion, and he's one of the few in our Primavera I expect to make the jump.
His passing ability and the way he organizes the game were brilliant for a kid his age - lack of speed is annoying, but his physical attributes make up for it.


It's a shame we didn't act on both him, Christian Norgaard, and especially his then teammate Viktor Fischer right after the U-17 Euros. Fischer was snapped up by Ajax, and he is just an amazing footballer that will be worth alot of money in the not so far future.

I'm sure we could have picked Fischer then very cheaply - now the next time he'll be sold it will be surely for above 10 million euro, if not more.
Great post, you nailed it 1 year ago man!

Seems like he is motivated to also improve on his defensive and ball recovering skills. I can understand why Mazzarri likes Olsen, he is very very mature for his age and I believe he should be retained in our 1st squad for the entire season.

I know man, I stayed up all night to see the game. :datass: Not only he scored, he did it in a very arrogant manner - passing the ball in the middle of the goal and making gestures afterwards to the crowd (shutting down those juBentus fans LOL). He surely does not lack ambition and determination.

I like his MOVEMENT on the field [something new given the fact that we're used to STATIC midfielders], he always knows what to do and acts quickly. He is a kind of a regista but he's also improving his defensive skills.

I feel he could be our Jolly-Joker player if kept, he is skilled and very mature for his age. I believe he can contribute, especially that we are short on transfer money. I would sell Kuzmanovic and keep Olsen in the 1st team squad.

07 Aug 13, 06:17
Let's start overrate our youth again :D

The guy has potential, it's obvious. Just like Duncan, Obi, Benassi... But he is far from "class", "great" or attributes like that. He has the passing, the mentality (at least from these pre-season friendlies), but his decision making is still poor, often tries to chase players he shouldn'e have, tries some unreasonable shots from distance, has poor defensive positioning and stuff like that.

Long way to go. Is it worth giving him chances? Sure. Should we expect much? Definitely not. Duncan atm is way more ready and better player.

we overrate all our young players

which is why now 2 of them are in Serie A with Livorno, another 3 are at other Serie A teams, another is playing in the CL, another is playing in a German team ~comparable to Inter last season, and we're about to loan 3-4 more to a Serie A side.

If they're playing at Serie A level and we're overrating them, I'd love to know what people actually think they are? Better than Messi or something?

I've been thinking about this. Benassi and Olsen are obviously quite similar in position and attributes, however Olsen seems to have the edge in mentality. It's to early to say though, just because Olsen riles up the crowd, while Benassi goes about his job quietly doesn't mean he's lacking confidence. Not to mention this is preseason and Benassi did it in Serie A, Coppa Italia, and Europa league.

I'll be interested to see what the clubs plans for Olsen are. I would love to see him given a chance in the first team. Between Olsen, Benassi and Cristeg you would think we can get at least one solid passing midfielder out of our youth academy.

Oh, yeah, one guy who came up through our academy recently is now arguably one of the top 10 strikers in the world (Balotelli), and another is a starter for the Serie A champions and CL quarterfinalists, who lost to the eventual champions (Bonucci at rube). Our academy is, imho, one of the best in Italy and really deserves more credit.

It's very easy for us armchair coaches to sit and say what we would do but it's not us risking millions in contract money over a game. Until Moratti shows that trusting youth and all the bad that comes with it will not end up in a coach getting the sack we will never see bravery. Until than its better to play it safe with Cuchu even if you think Olsen might play better, because if you lose at least you can save face. Starting Olsen in a big game like that and having him flop would be suicide.

Just because cambiasso is struggling, doesn't mean we have to overrate olsen to starter status. Cambiasso can be bad but still better on any given day that olsen. There is no one who, if they had to win one game, even right now, start olsen over cambiasso. I see the argument that over the course of the season, olsen should be given more playing time.

sollie
07 Aug 13, 17:55
Maybe not Olsen, but certainly Duncan. I certainly think Duncan is at this moment better than Cambiasso. We are never gonna know if these young players are good enough until he give them a proper chance.

Im sure since these are friendly this is where you want to give some experience to your young players, rather than subbing them in and expecting something special when you are a few goals down in a competitive match.

Toninu
07 Aug 13, 18:11
Tbh I never was impressed that much by Benassi last season but it's impossible to look good in the awful team we were last season. Now Olsen seems like a very mature player for his age (even though his face looks like he's 50 so there must be something wrong), this guy seems to excel in the role we threw Kovacic in last year and I think he's more adapt to play there. Maybe with Olsen we won't need a destroyed because with the likes of Olsen and Kovacic on the pitch we won't lose possession as much and plus we're already playing 5 defenders so we are already risking being too defensive.

Wallace
08 Aug 13, 11:13
Sorry to spoil the party, but I'm going to inject some realism into you guys.

If this kid's talent isn't anywhere near Balotelli's (who's the one and only player who successfully made it through to our first team for a sustainable period of time), chances are, we won't see him anywhere near Inter in the next year or so. Yes, not even on the bench, reserve maybe.

And this means, we probably won't see him anymore unless he delivers some crazy assist or goal for the team soon enough.

Unless, we realize we're so broke that we can't sign any of Nainggolan, Taider, or even Wellington, then Olsen might still have a chance of getting some first team actions this season.

Oh, and even after scoring or assisting, if the goals and assists are not consistently delivered, you are immediately relegated to the bench until you can deliver again. The timeframe that is given to you to try and achieve that is about 5 mins before the end of the game, and sometimes that includes the added time.

Even if you manage to do all those above. If you happen to be not a saint, you will still get sold.

I realized I have just wrote the definitive guide for Inter youth. Hopefully Olsen doesnt read it or otherwise it would suddenly put an extra tonne of pressure on him.

Olsen: "I'm only at the start but I'm learning a lot from Inter"
To Inter Channel: "I'm happy to be able to train with the best players in Italy. I want to please Mazzarri: I need to work hard and run like crazy"

MIAMI - After his good showing against Juventus, Patrick Olsen told Inter Channel about what he is gaining from his time with the first team, and what he expects from his future.

How much of a help was it to be part of the pre-season training camp with the first team?

"I have to work hard. I want to learn from Cambiasso, do what I can in training to make the coach happy. When he picks me I have to do my job, work hard, play passes and run like crazy. This is the start of my career, I've still got a long way to go before I reach the top. I'm here for now and happy to train with the best players in the country. I'm learning and improving a lot training in a team like Inter. It's a great place to start my career."

Your preferred position on the pitch would be where Cambiasso plays then?

"Yes, that's my best position because I can dictate play with short and long passes. I can control the play and be one of the best defenders. This is the best position for me but if Mazzarri decides to put me where Kuzmanovic, Guarin, Ricky or anyone else plays, I still want to be there and do what I have to. Does Cambiasso help me? Yes, he teaches me a lot, during training sessions he tells me if it's better to run in one direction rather than standing still or something else. He helps me a lot."

What do you miss most about home in Denmark?

"I miss my mum's cooking. She makes a cracking dish called 'Frikadelle'."

What is it?

"Meat mixed with potatoes, onions and other stuff. It's hard to explain."

:yuno:
Cambiasso should be our new trainer before the season starts, he teaches anybody, from Nash to Olsen...

Didn't mind his mistakes on offense, but on defense he was a headless chicken the majority of the time.

Zero tactical awareness and positional sense - I love the attitude and the fact he's willing to put the effort, but he really went overboard there. Looked the part of a Primavera kid - hopefully a loan where his growing pains can be forgiven and still be granted playing-time will help his development.

The potential and ability is naturally there. Just need to mature, get experience, and polish some things up.

he is 19, named one of the best young players of Europe by a newspaper and yet has to make his debut in an official match.

way to go Inter :palm:

Every time I've seen him play he's been solid. But nah, lets let Fredy play and put on a clinic in fucking up simple passes.

I just hope he's not used as a bargaining chip for some average player, and gets a loan to a decent club to develop.

at least he played the friendly and scored from a shot that was deflected

would never score a goal like that in Serie A, but he shows hunger

Deflected goal > shoving it into row Z tbh :P

yeah but you don't believe he is actually good enough to play infront of Guarin, Kova or Taider?

but maybe he should get loaned for a half of season

16 Oct 13, 00:24
He refused to be loaned out. He should have agreed to it.

Oh, he probably thought he would play more :D

guess he don't know Mazzarri

It's been really disappointing to see him continually on the bench. He has talent, and the club has to put in the initiative to nurture it.

If he was never in Mazzarri's plans, then we should've loaned him out instead of leaving him to rot on the bench.

Hopefully both him and Kovacic can get more minutes on the pitch in the future, and the likes of Guarin and Cambiasso can be gradually moved onto the bench.

Patrick was not included in the latest Danish Under-21s, which was a bit surprising. Last national break, he was already speaking about taking the step up to the A team, but as mentioned before he has had issues with the Danish FA management due to his behavior off the pitch.

Patrick currently stands in the shadow of another young, creative MC, Pierre-Emil Højbjerg, who is from 1995 and actually had more playing time for his club - even though that club is FC Bayern! Patrick recently told the Danish press that he himself refused a loan move to Brescia because he liked to do things the hard way sometimes - and that he wanted to work his way into the Inter squad.

I still fear that he is hindered by the fact that we have to pay his former club Brøndby ½ million € when Patrick gets his debut. It is a terrible clause to have in a young players contract, but on the other hand it should be peanuts for Inter if we really believe in Patrick.

The benefit of reserve teams playing in professional leagues vs. only having a youth team.

Just a question mate, how do you spell the ø in Højbjerg? and if the j is silent, why you sick people put it every-fucken-where?

It could turn out to be quite good that he plays there entire season and then come back to Inter in November as the season ends. He can be properly evaluated until January whether he is ready for Inter or another loan.

He is from Copenhagen in Denmark, not Drammen in Norway :) I am also curious of why he chose a norwegian team. Strømsgodset are the last years champions and they do play attacking football, so thats good. The last couple of years they have been loaning several youth players from Man City like Mohammed Abu, Bismark Adjei-Boateng and Abdisalam Ibrahim.

Man, how far I've missed that like a Guarin shot, dunno why I thought so, perhaps because of his parents and girlfriend going with him ..

He seemed really impressive in preseason (disappointed he didn't get many chances with the first team tbh), but surely he could've been loaned out to a more demanding league (no offence to the Norwegians on the forum ofc).

Patrick starts for Strømsgodset in their friendly against my club Aalborg BK right now. The match can be streamed through kanalsport.dk.

His new coach, David Nielsen, said today:

"He (Patrick) is working well, but still needs time. Patrick is an option when he is in shape, and right now he is not yet where he has to be at. I field the best team each time, and Patrick needs to improve to get closer to the starting XI. But I can see that he works very hard."

He moved inn with his girlfriend. Thats why he choose Norway. He was injured at the beginning of the season, if I am not mistaken and has not been picked by the coach after that. But he has been playing with the B team a few matches and done very well. Also Strømsgodset has this wizkid (Martin Ødegaard) who has taken his spot. The kid is 15 and debuted for the national team on monday or tuesday against Bulgaria. Not bad for a 15 year old...

Also read in a interview that the coach (David Nielsen also danish) was a big part in why he chose to go on loan to Strømsgodset.
