Valentino Lazaro has officially joined Inter.

https://scontent-frx5-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/65393741_10158688987363696_2926085442656796672_n.j pg?_nc_cat=104&_nc_oc=AQlja4ue4k7nxyqZOxEXv7PF5iCT8Gio0WCpwksbRK9 99J87dl9SsQqZGmyT7RhSkMI&_nc_ht=scontent-frx5-1.xx&oh=be5157fd10ec6bcdc62cb0af7e3bc967&oe=5DC53ADB


MILAN – Valentino Lazaro is now officially an Inter player. The Austrian joins the Nerazzurri from Hertha Berlin, signing a contract up until 30 June 2023.

Valentino is certainly not one to wait around, and at the age of 23, he already has huge ambitions for the future. Ever since he was a child, born and raised in Graz, he’s been full of life. Forever ringing his friends’ doorbells, running down the street and playing right up until there wasn’t enough light to see the ball. He boasts just one passion – football. He’s still inspired by his childhood heroes from the past, looking to imitate the skills of Brazilians from the SeleÁao – whether that be dribbling, free-kicks or passing.

Valentino Lazaro initially came through the youth ranks at Salzburg, where he also made his debut in the Austrian league. He spent five seasons at the club, four of which included a successive streak of league titles and domestic cups. Lazaro knows how to win. He plays mostly on the right flank but is versatile and used to playing in different roles. Like many greats of the game, he developed at a young age by playing on the streets, giving him a great base in terms of skill and tactical selflessness. Those courtyards and tight spaces proved to be the perfect setting in helping him to grow as a player.

During two campaigns at Hertha Berlin, he got to know the Bundesliga and made 31 appearances last season, scoring three and assisting seven goals. Lazaro’s unpredictability also saw him become a part of the Austria set-up and he has 12 international caps and one goal. Now, he’s set to start at Inter with a real sense of enthusiasm. From all of the Nerazzurri family, #WelcomeValentino!

Nice, that's 2 signings announced and the window has been open for less than 24 hours.

Was kinda hoping we would keep this under wraps until tomorrow though, then announce Sensi the day after that. Just to keep that media hype train rolling.

It don't take much to discover that this player is not Dalbert or some other guy of the 100 RB/LB we had in this 9 years. Which don't means that he is automatically a world class player yes but there is anyway a good chance that this guy is really not bad and will resolve our RB/RW problem.

Lazaro has the technique to contribute centrally once his pace earns him the opportunity. None of our wide players had anything special last year when cutting in and usually settled for a bad cross or a pass back.

I've wondered about this lad also. What does he possess that I should be excited about ? Exactly what is it that he has that could possibly cement him a starting position over anyone from our current list ??

I've got a feeling this is another Ruben Botta. Turns up, does nothing, then disappears.

I hope I'm wrong.

At least Ruben Botta didn't cost 20m and you could argue some potential was there.

"I don't know this player, watched only some videos, he is average" - FIF 2019



i wonder what people expect from videos. It's not like everyone is Pepe and Mbappe. And this guy seems not that bad in the videos. As someone here already said, he reminds me of Cuadrado in the first years when he was at Fiorentina. We should wait before saying that he is shit. Not everyone is Dalbert like not everyone is Skriniar. My first impression is that he isn't like Dalbert but we need to see if he is a Skriniar (or some other no name that came to Inter and got one of the best)

I can judge from his body language, he is destinied to fail. I get the Dalbert impression.

Welcome Valentino. Happy we got him for that particular Position.
Fun fact: Everyone is drooling over Nico Schulz (who is in fact a very good Player), but Nico Schulz was a far lesser offensive threat than Valentino at a much higher scoring team.
With Valentino we get a very skillful and pacey player, who can create. He is very versatile, being able to play everywhere on the right wing, as a left winger, central midfielder or attacking midfielder. His stronger foot is the right one, but He is also capable of playing with His left to a certain degree.

The strongest part of his game ist certainly the attacking part, whereas defensively he might be cancelo level or slightly above.

And for the Love of god, His YouTube Highlights don't show anything as you cannot See Bundesliga Games but Just Cup and national team

yep i noticed too.. i saw a video from "Bild" (a german newspaper) that talked about the rumour and showed some goals and assists from Lazaro. And there are a lot of assists that i don't found on other videos because Bild has the rights to show Bundesliga highlights.

Was just on the phone with a friend and we were discussing random football stuff, completely unrelated to Inter. Then for some reason Lazaro came up and he was like yeah I saw him live when I went to see Hertha (twice). "He's no good" was his direct quote :lol: Didn't even ask if he was good enough for Inter, his comment was based on Hertha. In fairness, one of the games he watched was the Leverkusen thrashing but he did happen to score in that game.


Fingers crosses he becomes a whole new player at Inter, otherwise we're stuck with him for the next 5 years :pazzini:

Says his idol is Ronaldinho... should make for an interesting "defender."
Don't honestly know anything about him, but it seems like it was Conte's first choice so he must know something we don't about what he can give to the team. The RWB position requires a workhorse and it does seem like Lazaro is athletic, talented, and hungry. So hope for the best. Also had over 100 professional caps between Salzburg and Berlin before the age of 22 so that bodes well.

Welcome Lazaro: “get up and walk” (run, cross, etc.)

I suppose and hope he will have his own presentation video.

Given the "freestyle” football clips Lazaro shot when he was a Ronaldinho-wannabe teen playing for Red Bull Salzburg (https://vimeo.com/40326270), I wouldn't be surprised to see the Austrian juggling in the Milan Metro with headphones on and emerging from the M5 San Siro Stadio DAZN station.

[Gabriel Barbosa juggling on the rooftop and dominating the city of Milan for Pirelli didn't turn out very well: better go underground.]

But he looks well past that phase and maybe Inter Media House planned to make a trap music video (and not "Freestyler" by Bomfunk MC's).

I would wait till I judge. I don't know the guy, seen him only couple of times, once against my NT where he raped us :lol:

Anybody coming into this team from a different league is a 0/10 until we see them play the game. YouTube videos and all that analytical shit doesnít count anymore, weíve had so many examples to now conclude that unless they have the combination of mental fortitude, confidence and skill, they probably wonít succeed.

Dalbert's problem is he's too timid, there's no doubt there's something there but I think we're all tired of waiting.Dalberts problem was very low IQ. You could see his team mates and manager telling him what to do with every touch. If Lazaro turns out to be a beast I'll be surprised because there's really a lack of tier 1 talent in bundesliga ie good enough to compete with Bayern. Most get by with good coaching and team football. Dortmund just resigned Hummels because there are no other quality CBs available. Right now our starting RBs are Wolf (originally a winger) and Piszczek who is 34 and injury prone. We have Hakimi and Guerreiro as LBs yet we spend 20M on another one (Schulz), doesn't make sense, Germans are not wasteful.

Hakimi is a natural RB so getting a starting lb makes a lot of sense for Dortmund. Guerreiro is injury prone so Dortmund needed a starting lb in order to use Hakimi in his natural position. Piszczek is old and Wolf is simply not good enough.

Lazaro: Conte key to Inter move
By Football Italia staff

Valentino Lazaro has confessed that Antonio Conte played a key role in his move to Inter.

Lazaro completed his transfer to Inter on Monday, and the former Hertha Berlin winger is excited about not only playing for the Nerazzurri but also under a Coach like Conte.

“My first impressions are fantastic,” the 23-year-old told reporters.

“I’m very happy to be here. I hope to do well and have a bright future with this club.

“I didn’t think all this would be waiting for me, I’ve received so many messages. I’m very happy with all this affection.

“I’m excited and happy to be able to test myself in the Italian League with the Inter shirt.

“I talked to Conte recently. He told me exactly what he expected of me and from me.

“He was one of the reasons why I chose to come to Inter. I think I can learn so much from him.

“I’ll do everything to repay his faith. I’m delighted to be a part of a great club like Inter. I can’t wait to start the new season.”

Inter new boy Valentino Lazaro admits he is already feeling the Antonio Conte effect ‘in his legs’.

Lazaro joined the Nerazzurri from Hertha Berlin last week and will make his debut for the club in their first friendly of preseason against Lugano on Sunday.

“I feel very good. I’m a bit tired because we’re working hard, but it’s normal,” the right winger told Inter TV.

“I’m very happy to be here and get started, all the lads are fantastic and there’s a great atmosphere. We all want to work hard. Everything’s going great.

“Everyone’s welcomed me very well and they’re giving me a great hand. I’m already learning a bit of Italian and they're helping me with the language.

“In the meantime, Ivan Perisic is acting as my translator. Everyone’s welcomed me and I’m very happy.

“Conte likes to work to the fullest. This is only the second day, but we’ve all taken note of how he works and we’ve felt it in our legs, but it’s normal for preseason.

“We all work together giving the maximum because we have important objectives and we want to do well.

“It’ll be special to wear the Inter shirt for the first time and I can’t wait to play.”

Agent: "Lazaro and Inter, everything started back in February. He chose this club because of Conte and Champions League"


Speaking to FCIN, agent Max Hagmayr reveals how his client, Valentino Lazaro, ended up signing for Inter.
“We first talked to Inter about Lazaro months ago, when Inter faced Rapid Vienna. I met Piero Ausilio and Luciano Spalletti. We talked about football in general then the conversation turned to Lazaro. The director had known him for a long time and when he was 16 years old, they tried to bring him to Italy. That time, we were really close to closing that deal. Subsequently, I also watched the return leg at the San Siro. Then one step at a time, Valentino told me that he was ready for the next step in his career. Inter had a coaching change and Conte’s formation is absolutely perfect for him. It was right after a conversation between them that the final decision arrived. Lazaro wanted Inter, also because Conte is one of the best coaches and motivators in the world.”

Basically, the reasons for this decision fall on Conte and on the fact that Valentino had been interested by Inter for a long time.
“Yes, but also for their participation in the Champions League. And because we are talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world.”

First impressions?
“Between us, we already talked about Inter a lot. Then we also had a chat with Steven Zhang. We understand how Inter want to improve. They signed a top coach and now aim to get higher and higher. Marotta and Ausilio are excellent professionals. The project is serious and I must say that even the fans are best.”

There were many teams wanted Valentino.
“Many, you must pick those who could pay the player’s price tag. Let’s say that among the teams, without naming names, at least three that were serious.”

As long as our key players like Skriniar, Barella and Lautaro stay fit it will be fine.

Yes, expect more to join that list.

Inter tweeted on Thursday morning that tests in Singapore showed ‘a muscular strain in his right thigh’ and he would be evaluated again ‘in the coming days’.

Lazaro only completed a move to the Nerazzurri at the start of the month, while it comes just a week after they lost Matteo Politano to a flexor injury.

The 23-year-old is now unlikely to feature in their International Champions Cup opener against Manchester United on Saturday.

Well.. if we want not to spend too much money for lukaku, get a decent replacement, not only a striker.

So nobody has a problem overpaying €5m for Valentino (which is quite a high percentage given his overall fee %), but when it comes to the most important targets Conte has specifically requested we are playing the waiting game?

- - - Updated - - -


Anyone knows his return date?

The Austrian will be available against Valencia. The former Hertha Berlin player has been watching a lot of tapes with Conte to understand more about his role and how to handle situations in attack and defense. This is why Candreva has an advantage. If you could bet a euro on who will start against Lecce in a couple of weeks, the Italian would clearly have better odds.

no i was more thinking about Sneijder that played against Milan he's first match. It would be a nice presentation for the player that for now only played 20 minutes against Lugano which was not enoug to say how good he is and what impact he will have. We still don't know if he needs time or he can be already important at the beggining. I have anyway a good feeling because Conte knows how to use he's players. There is for sure a reason why he wanted Lazaro here. And it's not because he wanted a player for the bench (even if Candreva is not doing that bad)

He was sitting in his wheelchair buttnaked reeking like a sewage treatment plant, his feet were covered in open wounds which have gone mouldy pretty bad. Hadn't I needed the money to buy some smokes I'd probably have given him a buck or two. And yeah, if it wasn’t Monday but let’s say Wednesday I’d claim it wouldn’t even be among the top 5 most disgusting things I’ve seen since the start of the week.

06 Aug 19, 07:18
I get he was converted to the wingback role and everything, but it was worrying to read that interview from a few weeks ago in which Hertha's sporting director said "Lazaro had a great season in a position he doesn't like".

Hopefully he wasn't accurate or something got lost in translation (for example, "he didn't like at first"), otherwise there's a chance Valentino - Ausilio's rumoured old target - tricked Conte in their first conversations just to sign a fundamental contract for his career.

I'm looking forward to his first trap hit in Milan (and possibly a prestigious featuring in the city). Forza Valentino

He's playing for Austria against Latvia (2:0 at HT).

Pros: very active and committed, everywhere in the last third, often searched from his team mates

Contras: his1-vs-1-attempts weren't successful, he tries too many "flashy" stepovers for my taste, wasn't that involved anymore when he switched on the left side

Trivia: The commentator praised Candreva as a very hard competitor and the reason why Lazaro was benched in the first two games.

Here a rating from Austrias biggest sport website:


VALENTINO LAZARO (Inter Mailand/24/2), until 68th minute, grade: 2

For the Neo-Inter-Legionary it was the first competitive game of the season. The Styrian began on the right wing, but temporary switched with Alaba. Acted agile and imaginative, but not everything worked out. He was one of those Austrians who might have been a bit too unselfish and were looking for the last pass instead of the finish. Too bad that Alaba shot the ball over the goal after a beautiful assist from him in the 55th minute. Just before he was replaced by Gregoritsch after 68 minutes, he missed a good chance for a header.

Google translate from Laola1.at (https://www.laola1.at/de/red/fussball/oefb-nationalteam/a-team/spiele/laola1-einzelkritik-zu-oesterreich-gegen-lettland/). He also got a grade 2 from my local newspaper (grade 1 is the best, grade 5 the worst in Austria).

Sure it does. Otherwise 90+% of Europeans wouldn't be into football and 90+% of americans wouldn't be into hockey/basketball/NFL/baseball (counting people who are into sports).

I mean, sure globalization somewhat shifts these percentages, but not by a great margin. At least not do far, maybe in the (very) long term.

If anything, I would say that immigration in the u.s. has increased the number of people who watch football more than globalization.

A lot of those little kids who played soccer in the 80s and 90s grew up to be fanatics. I know because you’re talking to one and a lot of my friends are the same. I would say most people in my friend group who grew up playing enjoy the game and watch it just as much as anyone. Being born in Europe or South America doesn’t give one a birth right to knowing more about the sport. Some of the stuff I see written on this forum and others certainly proves that.

You’d be surprised - born and raised in the USA and I’m a big-time fan, and there’s pockets of friends that are super deep into the sport and fandom, particularly EPL.

I didn’t even play soccer (played football and wrestled in high school) and I have friends that are more into EPL/CL than they are into NFL.

A big part of it is FIFA as well, lots of Americans love FIFA, particularly Ultimate Team which requires you to actually pay attention to the sport to be good at it.

Anyways - I hope Lazzaro does well and I’m looking forward to his official debut. Kid’s young with a lot of energy and potential.

Was he that bad? i thought he actually looked solid for some moments. specifically that first run he had and cross. Regardless this is a difficult game to measure how good/bad anyone is. It was overall a terrible game..conflates everything else.

Hard to judge him to be honest. The while team looked loat and it's not really the best way to judge a player on his debut.

Nothing to be said about him yet honestly. He came on to a semi-toxic atmosphere in the stands and a stinky pitch (teammates shitting themselves, what else is new?). Let's see him play under normal circumstances at least.

He seems to have potential, happy to have him in the squad. Good acceleration which is great in final third, i liked his first cross as well, I feel Lukaku should have been positioned better, one to keep an eye on for sure.

MusicalMafia
18 Sep 19, 14:01
Obviously he came on when the whole team was under pressure, a lot of a time he also didn't have any nice passing opportunites (which he has expressed to his teammates, there was a lot of waving involved), but it was a underwhelming debut nevertheless. Based on what I saw yesterday, I understand why Candreva holds the spot at the moment, although few occasions, such as the cross, show a potential to change that in the future.

I have absolutely zero expectations of Lazaro but I've no idea why people are criticising him for Prague match.

He got subbed into a complete shitstorm of a match, brought a sense of urgency and did his best not to surrender possession cheaply. There was several times he had the ball with his head up, but couldn't find any teammates making any runs or any space. He got himself into good positions to receive the ball but then got completely Nagatomo'd by Biabiany by his teammates like 3 times.

You would bench Godin? D'Ambro was beaten too easily versus Slavia and I love D'Ambro but when it comes to coming out with the ball Godin is ten times the player.

Lazaro gave me Dalbert flash backs in his first minute on the pitch, we need to wait and see, he barely played a friendly for us. My only qualm with him is that he doesn't look like an athlete, and I mean body wise not the tattoos, he seems like he can get bullied off the ball but hell the club wanted him what could go wrong? It's not like we bought a full back (supposedly to start) every year for the past decade.

CafeCordoba
20 Sep 19, 20:48
He didn't get to a favourable situation. Our team was almost in shambles when he got it, they had no idea what to do. If Lazaro's job is to be in the flank, there wasn't much he could do in that Slavia match.

Wallace
20 Sep 19, 21:33
Was the situation so pathetic that caused him to scramble every pass away like he had some form of football phobia?

I had issues with his composure and decision making with that game, it may or may not be affected by inward psychological pressure.

I donít know, time will tell, he can at least get that considering we paid 25 mil for him. With that kind of performance thereís no chance in hell he would be going any time soon (ala Dalbert), so he has all the time in the world to rectify anything and everything (ala Dalbert).

Itís quite funny how modern financial practices in football encourages you to keep your liabilities, and donít mind you selling your profitable assets on the get go. That totally is the inverse of productivity for a club like us, though I guess it is essential to keep that balance sheet looking good.

I would say Godin as LCB. Skriniar Centre. As much as i like De Vrij.
Hell we have 3 of the best 3 cb's in the world, the problem i see is that they are the same type of defenders. I would change De Vrij with a more mobile defender.




Anyway, let's go back to the Lazaro discussion.
I'm sure he will work nice when he has a chance. Just his attitude is completely different than stoned Dalberto

firmino
24 Sep 19, 10:08
After watching him just around 15 minutes in champions League, I feel I can predict that in the long run, he will become for us more important than asamoah and Candreva. That's because he is the only one who can beat his man on the flanks.

The other two don't have it in them anymore because of their age, and merely get a 6 in the post-match analysis thanks to their experience.

Give Lazaro enough time and he will become a starter, if he pays attention to what Conte wants.

we need someone to bench Asamoah. I'm more confident we are ok on the other flank

firmino

Sure. But honestly, it wouldn't have hurt to give him 30 minutes. That would have been risky, but would also have put some pressure on them. And we lost anyway.

Conte didn't know we are going to lose at the point he subbed Candreva off. Lazaro has played, what, 45mins for the club. I wouldn't have used him against Barcelona away either. Only after he has settled in, just like Spallo did with Cancelo.

I'll have you know that Candreva would be a Capocannoniere candidate if they allowed players to score goals from offside positions. His finishing has been clinical in those situations.

This guy is our best wingback. That is not to say he's a great player, only that he's the best we've got for this position. It just takes him some time to do exactly what conte wants.

He's fast, he can beat his man, he can even score.

But he must do all he can to speed up the learning process.

Wallace

The greatest wing backs in the squad is the one that passes Conte’s tests, that means the one who he thinks is the best to start, at least at the moment.

So he is not the best, yet.

Having said that, I actually want to see him start a game as I think heíll ease into the game better. Being thrown in when the teamís 3 goals up only invites a mentality of ďdonít fuck this upĒ rather than anything constructive. I still think heís a lost cause at this stage.

One of the sub appearances he made earlier in the season, I remember him doing quite well. Today he was poor, but he's barely played this season so not going to write him off after a bad 20minute minute spell.

CoolMan44

I'm not sure he's really a wingback. Also I can't blame the entire collapse on one guy. I think our mentality was the issue after the 4-1.

20 Oct 19, 13:21
this guy knows nothing about defending, he covers his opponent really poorly and is so nervous like Dalbert was. He won few duels only thanks to his pace. He is a classic winger, can't imagine Conte gives him more chances, I think solution is to loan him to some italian team which plays with 3-5-2, like Fiorentina or SPAL, so he will learn the tactics and defending...

Lui
20 Oct 19, 13:25

He hasnít even played up to 90 mins total game time this season so Iím definitely not going to write him off just yet. He needs games. The season is still early but he should be smart enough to realize where he is on the pecking order and to maximize any playing opportunities given to him.

I know, I know: Falcao law ... But:

He's here since July and in almost four months he was allowed to play 40 minutes in our worst game of the season.

Some people here thought Ranocchia will be the new Nesta AFTER he spend three seasons at Inter. And don't forget: Lazaro is younger than Skriniar, who's underperforming the whole season (what can happen after two amazing seasons).

I think he deserves a fair chance. In the NT he's doing well. I knew him and I knew he won't be a world-beater, but I still think he can be a very useful option from the bench.

Till January? Till 2/3 of October his chance has been 60 minutes of football from the bench.

Honestly, he wasn't good but who was good after Lazaro came in? No one. The whole team dropped the ball completely so it's a bit fucked up situation for a new guy who wants to prove himself to go out there and try to play as instructed when all his team mates just drops it, "nah man we're done here, it's 1-4".

Slavia match was much worse situation when it was a forced substitution. And the whole team had played like shit till that and continued doing so.

Yeah, he's mostly been put to situations where he can't exactly attack at all. Against Slavia the whole team was in shambles and abysmal, so one WB can't do shit there. Against Sassuolo when he came in, the team thought it was over and stopped concentrating, not much thought was put to attacking. Lazaro was there just defending the whole 20 mins. Well he gets good experience with these moments but so far he wasn't able to express his strengths at all.
