Joao Mario: 'Big Inter responsibility'
By Football Italia staff

The Nerazzurri host Palermo at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), follow the action on our LIVEBLOG.

“It was certainly an important decision and I am very happy to be here,” Joao Mario told Mediaset Premium.

“I hope to help the team to reach our objectives.”

It was pointed out to him that the 23-year-old is the second most expensive buy in the club’s history.

“It’s a big responsibility, but I am not thinking about it much. I just want to help the team. We will try to achieve Champions League qualification.

“Scudetto? We can dream and work to reach that target, but first have to take it one step at a time. First there is the Champions League and then if possible we’ll try to win the title.

“After the two games for Portugal, I hope to start training with Inter. If the Coach wants, I am ready.”

He is similar to Brozovic position-wise. Can play as box to box, right winger or advanced midfielder.

I think after today's game I understand where we're heading with J.Mario.

With Benega playing deep behind, you need atleast one CM who can pass and has an intelligence of a natural human being. This doesn't work with both Medel and Kondogbia playing. Here's where I think that J.Mario will be very useful, assuming that he doesn't turn to be another Kondogbia.

If we are playing the same formation with Medel in a B2B advanced role, we are sacrificing a lot of attacking quality which can be provided by either JM or Brozovic.
I don't know much about JM, but I hope he can bring that stability which is between ball recovery and attacking potential. Brozovic cannot do this yet as he lacks discipline, however I also think this is something that he can improve on with time.

Manchester United-Linked Joao Mario Could Be Summer's Top Central-Midfield Prize
By Sam Tighe , World Football Tactics - Apr 8, 2016

On April 8, 2016, Joao Mario collected the Primeira Liga’s Young Player of the Month award for March. It represented the third consecutive time he’d won it this season, prompting Portuguese football writer Jan Hagen to label his current form “flawless.”

At 23 years of age, some may consider him a little old to be winning the young iteration of the award—much like how many people sneered at James Milner scooping the 2010 PFA Young Player of the Year at age 24—and it’s true that Mario is not that young, nor a rookie, either. He broke into the Sporting setup midway through the 2013-14 season and has enjoyed two-and-a-half campaigns at the top level in Portugal.

But regardless, it’s crucial to acknowledge the large steps forward he has made over the last six months; it’s easy to see why A Bola (h/t Jan Hagen) has linked him with some of the world’s biggest clubs ahead of what promises to be a busy summer for the midfielder.

His time in the first-team has been an undoubted success, and under manager Jorge Jesus—signed from city rivals Benfica this summer just gone—Sporting have become a true beast this year. Bar a worrying wobble in February/March, in which they lost ground in the title race and fell out of Europe rather unceremoniously, they’ve been a machine-like presence in gaining victories. Mario has been a key cog in a relentless midfield.

He is the understated midfield maestro you better wish your club pursues this summer. His name doesn’t carry the glitz and glamour of a Thiago Alcantara or an Ilkay Gundogan, but it won’t be long before he’s rubbing shoulders with them and rivalling the best on the planet for world-class status.

If you set out to build your perfect box-to-box midfielder in a laboratory, you’d come out with something pretty damn close to this Portugal international. His physique is perfect for his role—ideal height, a muscular frame and legs that allow both bursts of quickness and longer sprints—and he uses his body with the aggression required to win a midfield battle and set the tone for dominance.

His ever-lasting stamina allows him to play an all-action role for a full 90 minutes, steaming about the pitch to intercept, tackle and then break forward at speed. In terms of raw energy provided, it’s arguable he can’t be topped by many players across the continent.

He makes good decisions on the ball, varying between keeping things appropriately simple and embarking on mazy runs or digging out inch-perfect cross-field passes. He’s no Hollywood passer in the sense that he’s not constantly switching play with 50-yard dimes, but he has an exceptionally accurate pass in his locker that will occasionally come out if the time is right.
http://s3.amazonaws.com/br-cdn/temp_images/2016/04/08/957e903386b581e1e93de244af713567.gif?1460118014

His production in front of goal has improved with every campaign to pass, raising the combined total of goals and assists year on year. His two strikes against Arouca this weekend were the perfect encapsulation of what type of goal he is likely to score: They were both from about 18 yards out—one derived from clever anticipatory positioning on a counter, the other from finding a pocket of space just outside the box.

He’s also reasonably two-footed. While clearly favouring the right (most of his goals are scored with this foot), he’s been seen to whip a wonderful 30-yard pass in behind the defence to find a runner with his left. This duality to his game makes him rather difficult to track and close down; you can show many players to their weaker side, but Mario has a Plan B that few others can boast.

Record (h/t Jan Hagen) suggested Sporting will be under siege this summer as clubs circle for their starlets, but the outlet also said Mario is the only one Jesus will insist on keeping.

Mario isn’t the only one who will interest suitors—William Carvalho, Adrien, Paulo Oliveira and Islam Slimani have all turned heads for the right reasons this season, too—but he is the rhythmic heartbeat of this impressive, hard-working side.

Sporting fans will argue Mario can wait a year before moving, but UEFA Euro 2016 might just accelerate any career trajectory thought to have been mapped out for the 23-year-old. He now has eight caps for Portugal and demonstrated value and skill in his country’s friendly against Belgium during the recent international break; his best moment, an explosive run down the right and superb cross across the face of goal for Andre Gomes, saw him beat Radja Nainggolan for athleticism and then deliver a chance on a platter afterward.

http://s3.amazonaws.com/br-cdn/temp_images/2016/04/08/218b95ddad919ff2b14b0b6a3ae0950a.gif?1460117993

The aforementioned A Bola report suggests Atletico are at the front of the queue for Mario, but there are teams out there where he may flourish more obviously and more quickly; Manchester City, who need a midfield rebuild, is one, and their cross-town rivals Manchester United are another.

His box-to-box nature would suit Luis Enrique’s new-style Barcelona (though Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto fulfil his role), while he could provide a boost to Real Madrid’s midfield, becoming the latest Portuguese export to frequent the Santiago Bernabeu.

Projecting him to such a calibre of club is revealing of his talent. The gargantuan strides he has made forward over the last nine months have the Portuguese rightly excited, and if you’re a club in need of a central midfielder but miss out on Gundogan or fail to lure Paul Pogba, sign Mario—he’ll light it up, just as he has done with every stage presented to him thus far.


Brilliant analysis, Sam! While Renato Sanches has understandably been getting all of the headlines (he's been outstanding!), Joao Mario has consistently been the best midfielder in Portugal this season. While he prefers to operate as an attack-minded #8 in a three-man midfield, he has primarily been utilized as a winger in a narrow-4-4-2 for both club and country this season. However, while Joao Mario is quite mobile and is an excellent crosser of the ball, he is by no means an orthodox winger. In fact, he is most effective when he is given the license to roam.

He is particularly adept and creating and exploiting pockets of space in between the lines with his clever movement and link-up play. He also has the vision, tactical discipline, and passing range to operate in a much deeper role. Therefore given his particular skill set -- extremely high football IQ, superb technique, and incredible versatility -- I think he would absolutely thrive under the guidance of Pep Guardiola an Man City.

Sporting announced on Saturday that they will receive a club record €45m for the 23-year-old – a fee that equals the highest amount received for a player by a Primeira Liga club, set when Monaco signed James Rodriguez from Porto in 2013.

Joao Mario joined Sporting at the age of 11 after a spell with Porto and progressed through their highly respected youth academy before making his debut in a Europa League defeat to Lazio in 2011.

And he was eager to pay tribute to everyone at the club.

"Where to start...," he wrote on his official Instagram page. "A wonderful 14 years that I won't forget, no matter what happens!

"At this time, only the word 'thanks' comes to mind. I thank Sporting for everything they did for me. From my first day, I knew I had made the right choice, and I thank all the people who were part of this story.

"To all the directors, all the coaches I have had, all the people who worked for years at the academy, I say THANK YOU! You will all be in my heart, like all the sportinguistas.

"From today, I am more of a fan who will cheer on Sporting, and it starts tomorrow!

"Thanks to Inter for this opportunity and for all the affection I have had during today. I'm eager to start."

Joao Mario on loan at Inter
By Football Italia staff

Joao Mario joined Inter on loan, the Lega Serie A confirms, helping the Nerazzurri with Financial Fair Play.

The midfielder has moved to San Siro from Sporting CP, in a deal which is thought to be worth around €45m.

That raised questions about how the Beneamata would comply with their FFP obligations, but the official transfer listing on the Lega site confirms Joao Mario is on loan.

Inter will still have an obligation to buy the Portuguese international at the end of the season, but that will be counted as part of next summer’s spend.

While the Nerazzurri will still be paying out €45m, all that will be deducted this season is the cost of the loan, thought to be around €5m.

Don't worry, he is not Jovetic.


I do not share this same exuberance sadly.

I am sure the majority of us were very happy when we signed Jovetic and most of us were confident he would be a success in the Serie A because of his Viola tenure.The only thing that probably caused us consternation was his susceptibility to injuries.Nobody would have thought we would be so desperate to get rid of him like this.

I feel like there is an ex post facto recognition/over hyping of Wow Mario's footballing disposition since the Euros.I, for one, hadn't noticed him till the final match once we had been linked with him[ I agree I hadn't watched the Portugal games with much interest before that but still].These were a very lucky Euros for Portugal and they only won 1 match in regulation the whole tournament.For me their best players were Fonte and Pepe and they were a team not based on keeping the ball but counter attacking to Cristiano's strength.De Boer is likely to demand a more possession style game.

I am hopeful he is a success with us but I have my doubts at the same time.He is young and is said to have been successful in Portugal but I believe the Portuguese league hasn't had the same talent and competition these last few years.His price is based entirely on the Euros.I am hoping he justifies it but I wouldn't be surprised if this goes the Kondogbia way.I would love to be wrong ofcourse.Anyway welcome Wow Mario!

But hell, it seems like he touched the ball in every minute of the game, and was major contributor in linking up plays, and was always showing up nicely to receive the ball. outstanding off the ball movements, nice long passes, goal scoring assist opportunities, defending....he did it all.

Yup, good start.

I would really like to see a midfield of Bro/Kdog - Banega - Joao Mario. It might look a bit light but I think it's probably our best option right now based off of personnel. We simply don't have a DM that improves this side right now.

12 Sep 16, 05:54
I think he played too deep at the back, more like DM for me. I know that he need to cover Medel's shit but still too deep at the back while we were trying to build an attack. When second half began, I was expecting him to switch position with Banega, but it didn't happened

wera
12 Sep 16, 07:30
The problems were Candreva and Perišić who have not yet clicked with J.Mario and Banega, so the first half had a lot of wasted attacks because of stray passes and wrong decisions. Him playing next to Medel is good, since he has better passing range than Gary.

We will see more successfukl long ball counterattacks to Perišić, Icardi and Candreva when they click.

Had a decent debut. Didn't seem uncomfortable to me. The uncertainty you're describing probably has to do with him playing his first serie a match.

Yes a decent debut. He's clearly a quality player, cool & comfortable on the ball. Yes the uncertainty was perhaps more down to it being he's debut then the position. They say he could play anywhere in the midfield, I'd believe that's true, still I hope to see him in a three man mid soon.

He started really well, than come the yellow card, and he started to be more careful, and his performance drop a little bit. Great movement, great ball control, passing, vision, intelligence. I think this guy will surprise all of us, and in time will become our favored player. Unlike Kdog, he is not under pressure that he is our second most expensive player of all time, which says a lot about his mentality.

A Brazilian member of FIF explained that it's common in Brazil, it means grinta.

As for Joaeo Mario, this guy understand the basis of football, control, pass then move to propose yourself for a teamate, and go on. Our past midfielders were like I pass the ball and I watch you getting pressed without moving, Joao is always in movement.

I can see him and Banega having a really good relationship on the technical side, just like (though it wasn't the same posts) Sneijder and Eto'o in 2011.

You can see his intelligence from the move he made when he intercepted the ball and then passed it to Icardi for the second goal. The amount of penetrating passes in our game is increasing with this guy and Banega in the team, huge upgrade to last season's Mancini when the players were shitting their pants everytime they receive the ball and ended up being intercepted or misplacing the pass.

Ed.
21 Sep 16, 21:42

They're not even really comparable to me. They would actually compliment each other really well. Thiago never had the engine of a Joao Mario or really even a Banega for that matter. He is more of a metronome player. Joao Mario is involved in every phase of play. A midfield with Joao Mario and Banega in front of a prime Thiago Motaa would be so smart and hold possession for days.

All of you basically summed up his qualities, one thing that stoud out for me is his calm. He really looks like he's playing since 10 years, he's always cool, never panicking.

I think Pogba (in Fance, a journalist made a comparison with him in the Euro) needs talented players to shine in a midfield, while in Mario case, that's the players that needs him to shine.

Joao Mario: Serie A very interesting
By Football Italia staff

Joao Mario says he is relishing the opportunity of playing in a “very nice and interesting tournament” like Serie A after Inter’s 2-0 win at Empoli.

Inter earned their third successive League win on Wednesday thanks to Mauro Icardi’s brace, and Joao Mario – who has played every minute of the Nerazzurri’s run of victories – believes his side must now strive for consistency.

“We played as a team, now we have to find consistency and try to win again on Sunday,” he told Premium Sport after the game.

“Our objectives? We have to work day after day, game after game, and we need consistency.

“We respect everyone, but we must always take to the pitch with the right mentality.

“De Boer? I met him just a month ago, he’s growing with us and working to transmit his ideas to us.

“Serie A is a very nice and interesting competition, I’m trying to give the best of myself in every game and I hope to always improve my performance.”

I think that at some point (probably in a year and a half) there will be a request for a payrise, but not to go play elsewhere because his agent has ties with Suning and of course he wants to keep these ties; what's more, we paid for joao Mario so much that his agent is in a way morally in debt to Suning, that's another reason why I don't think he will try to bring his client to another team, at least not in the foreseeable future (not that an agent cares about moral per se, but as I said, kia of course wants to stay in business with Suning)

Inter have confirmed that Joao Mario missed Sunday’s visit of Bologna with a calf knock and Jeison Murillo with back pain.
According to a medical report on Inter’s official website, tests performed on Joao Mario showed “an elongation in the lateral proximal calf muscle of his left leg” as Murillo was diagnosed with “lower back pain”.
The pair “will be assessed day by day”, but GianlucaDiMarzio.com expects Murillo to be back against Sparta Prague in the Europa League on Thursday and Joao Mario at Roma this week

Annoying, as much as i still have faith in Kondogbia to grow as a player he has already shown his class which is not easily replaced

i think he looked very nervous or something. his first touch was awful. shouldn't have played but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

M.Adnan

He was obviously not fit to play this game. A major flaw in Inter is that J.Mario in midfield is now like Miranda in defense. Any injury to them means that we're doomed.

Maybe it was a mistake to bring him straight back from injury but that's just the hindsight benefit.

Poor game, he fucked up twice which nearly cost us, but he wasn't 100%, besides the alternatives wouldn't have been any better. I would prefer to see him in a 4-3-3.

For Miranda i'm agree, but not for Mario. We have Brozovic in our squad and Gnoukuri as well. As long as the latter is too young and hardly could be a constant replacement of Mario, Brozovic can fill the gap if De Boer gives him a chance. Last year Manshiti was counting mostly of Brozo and Medel but the third player was Melo or Kondogbia and both of them suck in terms of creation or building the game. Now with banega in that role, midfield of Medel - Brozo - Banega could be good enough. Brozo also can replace Banega on higher position on the field. The quality won't be the same of course but it's a possibility.

Once again showing why any excuse for Kondogbia is null and void.

I know he's been here for a short time but in that time has shown great leadership. He works hard, has adapted well and next to Handanovic and Miranda is the most important player on our team. I'd really like for him to be considered for the captaincy.

I actually really like him in a deeper role. He's just smart enough to pull it off. Couple of iffy moments but I feel he could iron those out if given a run of games in that position.

He was good yea. Feels like we're wasting his potential for sitting him that deep but we don't have a lot of choices.

Watching Mario playing deep there is like watching Motta and Cambiasso all in one package.

I like a old saying by Johan Cruyff: "If you play on possession, you don’t have to defend, because there’s only one ball”.

This sums up my view on playing Mario or Banega as a deep midfielder instead of an outdated complete ball destroyer with no attacking capabilities like Medel. I see no reason why Mario or Banega shouldn't play there, and I think they do a better job specially in a 3-man midfield. In fact, they take the pressure of the defenders better than Medel as we've seen yesterday because now they have someone trust worthy of distributing the ball when under pressure and making themselves available.

Gnoukouri is even better because he's too young that he can be developed to master that role, and he has the potential to do so.

Your friend was right. He played more back passes than Medel ever did too. In fairness though he had it hard, he was being man marked throughout by Fernandes.

31 Oct 16, 02:44
He's been pretty good this season bar today, but for over 40mil surely this guy is supposed to be more than someone who is the utility man in midfield and play simple passes. Then again, the performances that impressed me most in the Euro's were the ones were he was playing more advanced and closer to the wing. Feels like he's being wasted.

He didn't deserve well yesterday, maybe too tired and maybe out of position but I find it unacceptable to lose the ball and just stand there. That shit attitude is contagious and for the bump in salary he got he better be running at least when losing the ball

Lets not over react. He was bad last night yes but has been good all season really and is only 23. So far I wouldn't say we've overpaid. I would say he looks promising but it's still too early to tell if we've over paid. But last night his attitude was awful. And Banegas. Banega looked lost in our troublesome LCM position. Brozo was very impressive, though he came out too wide a lot of the time meaning we had a gaping hole in RCM.

Joao Mario: 'No time for De Boer'
By Football Italia staff

Inter midfielder Joao Mario admits that sacked Coach Frank de Boer 'wasn't given time'.

The 23-year-old also spoke about the difficulties in adapting to a European league for Brazilian players such as Gabriel Barbosa.

"De Boer did not have time to work but it was a difficult situation," the Portuguese player told TMW radio. "If a big team don’t have the right results, then Coaches get replaced.

“Gabigol? He’s a great player but coming to Europe from Brazil always brings difficulties. He needs time but he has the talent.

“He must work and the new Coach will bring out the best in him.
