MILAN - Stefano Sensi is officially a new Inter player. The Italian midfielder has joined the Nerazzurri on loan with a clause to make the switch permanent.

The 23-year-old midfielder has spent most of his life around football. He was 13 when he left his hometown of Urbino to move to the Rimini youth set-up. As it is for everyone, it was tough to leave home at a young age but perseverance is one of Stefano Sensi’s best traits. It allowed him to pave his way and take his place in the upper echelons of the game, overcoming hurdle after hurdle while following his dream.

Sensi moved to Cesena where he continued to play youth football before a loan at Lega Pro side San Marino where he was given the captain’s armband at just 18. There, he made 61 appearances and scored ten goals, often playing in attacking midfield. That was followed by a season in the first team at Cesena before Sassuolo signed him in 2016. In three seasons there, he made 68 appearances and scored five goals.

Sensi has shown himself to be someone who loves team play and he takes on responsibility. His vision and intelligence on the pitch previously earned him the nickname of ‘maestro’.
He has two Italy caps to his name and one international goal. An exciting new adventure now awaits him in an Inter shirt, best of luck to him from all the Nerazzurri supporters. #WelcomeStefano!

Hopefully he's a real deal. I have a confidence he's a better player than Gags and Vecino so with the current crop of players they are both bench options already. Add Barella and Nainggolan or Sensi goes to bench.

There is indeed great anticipation: the “Visit Uruguay” presentation video made by Inter Media House/Bureau of Tourism (featuring our new leader and mental coach on and off the pitch, Diego Godin) set the bar high.

He's much better technically than Vecino and Gags. At least from what I've seen of him at Sassuolo. Not sure how that will translate to Inter, where there's much more pressure to perform well but I remain optimistic about this move. And at only 23, he still has room to improve.

He has one skill that none of our midfielders since kovacic have had: the ability to turn and burn. I guess that means less touches for handanovic, hope hes ok with the reduced role.

In traditional FIF fashion, we have people talking about how these players are not an upgrade and how they are mediocre when its quite easy to see most of you have no idea who Sensi or Lazaro are to begin with. Which there lies the problem. Because most of you have never broadened your horizons of watching football outside of Inter matches, big teams like Barca, and random YouTube videos; some of you guys make these blanket statements that are just proving you know jack shit. Both these players fit perfectly in Conte's plans and were two positions we needed to upgrade. From what I've heard and seen, both Lazaro and especially Sensi are exciting prospects that with some patience and good coaching can be shaped into great players. Does this mean they will be world beaters, absolutely not. But to act like you have been watching these players, and to think you can have better judgement than scouts, Marotta, Conte, etc... that's just ridiculous.

That being said, I openly welcome both of them.

That’s why they pay Conte 12mil per season. Give him good players, players he want, and it ups to him to coach them and make them better individually and as a team.
I’m not as much worried as some of you here are obsessed with asking “big stars”....I believe in the coach. Those players are good enough to excel with this coach.
Now if we had Spalleti, then yeah, he’s not capable of to bring anything to the table with these kinds of players.
I trust Conte tho.

Not really excited about him but he has the right characteristics i m just not sure he s on the level he needs to be.

Oh man I like your optimism, but you could have said the same thing during the mazzari era, and we all know what happened there. As I have said earlier this deal despite the favorable conditions, will be passable only if we buy barella plus someone even more proven, because I am really sick and tired that these slightly above average players from sassuolo, bologna, and fiorentina are running the show in a club like inter.

SENSI: "IT'S AN INDESCRIBABLE FEELING TO BE AT INTER"
The midfielder's first comments as an Inter player: "It will be a year of hard work, everything is in place to do well"


MILAN - Work, learn and grow as a player to keep moving up. Stefano Sensi is ready to start his new adventure with the Nerazzurri and he spoke about it exclusively with Inter TV. “I’m very happy, I’ve already seen some different faces at my new Inter family. I’ve met very sociable people and relaxed people who make you feel in your element. The fans have given me a great welcome and my first impression is a great one and this is a good place to start from. I expect it to be a tough year with lots of hard work because Inter want to return to where they belong as a great side on the European stage. This year, everything is in place to to do well.”

The 23-year-old Italian midfielder’s move to Inter means that he’ll have to raise the bar again and be ready to play on the biggest stage and under Antonio Conte. “It’s an indescribable feeling, I’d honestly never have expected it. But I’m here now and I’ll give my best to work hard and be ready for the boss. Conte is definitely a big Coach with a winning mentality and that’s what you need in football today, he’s a Coach who makes an impact and helps you to develop and I can’t wait to start working with him.”

To be a part of a club like Inter means that you’ll also receive the support of the Nerazzurri fans: “It’s a big thing for us because when you receive all this support from the fans, it gives you extra motivation as a player and helps you to do your best on the pitch. We’re very pleased with this and let’s hope that we make the Interisti very happy.”

At 168cm height and 62kg weight, this guy won't win us any 50/50 duels, he is shorter than Politano. Advantage obviously being lower center of gravity, hopefully he can dribble a little bit and provide decent close passes.
Any physical midfielder will have a field day with this guy.

I'm not writing him off, instead I hope to be proven wrong.

If we start Brozo/Ninja/Barella and have this guy first off the bench, his energy vs. that of a Borja Valero off the bench will be an astronomical difference alone, forget the fact he is young, has a brain, and is a tidy passer of the ball.

We need DEPTH in midfield, look at Juve and their 7 CMs. I see us making another big midfield signing or two outside of this

Benvenuto Stefano! :proud: I read he will take shirt #12.

Yes, it`s sad that some people are THAT superficial. Some here would have preferred we splash 10m net wage on 34 year old Modrić with a what? 3 year contract?! :chan: Not to talk mention his absurd asking/transfer fee... while we cannot even offload 34 y.o. Borja... :palm:

When we finally have a player that seems to fit the bill, yet people are extremely UNexcited? Seems like a spoiled crowd, but looking at our post 2010 transfers, I see no reason for this.

I honestly don`t understand what people`s problem is! Technically he is superior to every player that we currently have in our midfield, so he is clearly an upgrade. His low gravity center will help keep possession and his quick thinking will ignite a speedy distribution of the ball, which is also what Luciano wanted. Ah, crowd wants another midfielder? That`s normal. But we now have a Chief Strategist to make the decisions and put things in order. The priority of our transfers is not random any more! 1st buy cheaply, add depth, lure them here with the illusion they will start, then take the big ones, the indisputable starters.

The arguments regarding his height are the most ridiculous ones! I guess nobody complained that Kanté and Lucas Torreira are both 1.68m tall?.. Not to mention Xavi and Iniesta both playing together and dominating the world for years.


not good enough for Inter
Could you please share WHY do you think so? Quoted this for future reference :trolldad:

Can`t wait to see how this thread will fill up with appreciation and admiration messages.

Being 1.91m tall, I have been long-awaiting for such a profile in our team because I know it`s almost impossible to take the ball away from them. They think and act swiftly, have pace and short dribbling, are very tidy in controlling the ball and passing it accurately. Italian is a plus while his best years are waaaaay ahead of him! Why is italian important? Because of the culture that they have by default - they know the history of teams and there are much higher chances they will give their all for the shirt, making them proud to be here [unlike other mercenaries]. He worked his way up and will continue to work hard to prove his worth. Perfect signing in my books, I actually kept suggesting him for months and had him on my shortlist, so I`m extremely happy that we got him, in a much better deal than Torreira. I just hope he is "mean" enough and will cope with the pressure.

Good luck Stefano, may you win a lot of relevant trophies at Inter!

Sensi: I can be Inter's Xavi - I could not find him saying this in the interview, but I guess Football Italia are smoking something good :slick:

https://www.football-italia.net/sites/default/files/imagecache/main_photo/[type]/[nid]/410487-873_0.jpg

Stefano Sensi believes he can be Inter’s very own Xavi Hernandez and that he made ‘the best choice’ rejecting Milan for the Nerazzurri.

Sensi’s playing style has been likened to the Barcelona icon, and the 23-year-old is ready to inject some ‘tiki taka’ into Antonio Conte’s new-look Inter.

“It’s as I imagined it,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I’m starting a new life, but it’s like I’ve always been here. My idol has always been Xavi.

“He’s like family to me: I grew up watching his games, I took things from his showreels.

“There’s something about his kind of football in my game. I’ve always been a Barcelona fan and I hope I face them in the Champions League.

“I think a winning mentality has been missing, and in that sense Conte can be a turning point. I think Inter have everything to start winning again this season.”

The former Sassuolo midfielder was then asked about interest from Milan and the possibility of linking up with Italy teammate Nicolo Barella at San Siro.

“I made the best choice coming here, and these first few days have already confirmed that. I’d also love Barella to join me here.”

There was this slideshow I found that analysed Sensi’s positioning and movement in several different setup. He is probably more versatile than what we are led to believe. What I can see here is he has an intelligent positioning and spatial awareness and should be pretty good at finding the passing lanes. This is useful whether you are playing pivoting position or more up front.

Interesting Conte played him on the left of Brozovic, he looks pretty comfortable there and seems to be able to hit the ball well with both feet.

I have a feeling we're going to see him as a regular in that position, or rotating with Nainggolan at that spot if the latter stays, while filling in for Brozovic when necessary.

Perisic also looks like he could benefit from playing beside a technical player like Sensi. I actually look forward to watching more the two cooperate in the coming friendly games.

Forza Sensi.

I’m glad that we bought a football player and not an athlete. So many years of Vecino’s and Guarin’s. Even if this guy isn’t a world beater at least I know he won’t mess up the fundamentals of the game. He at least has basic football IQ.

How well he does here remains to be seen but I view him as perfect 4th midfielder. He can basically be first sub for any position in midfield. Hopefully we sign a legitimate game changer for that third midfield spot. It will make this signing look that much better.

Raul Duke
15 Jul 19, 16:11
Broadly speaking, it felt like having a second Brozovic on the pitch. Moved efficiently off the ball, linked up smoothly and threatened from range.

He did cause a few unforced turnovers in high-risk/low-reward situations, but his stats suggest he's at least capable of keeping tight possession.

Perisic and Candreva showed promise playing in Conte's system. Hopefully Lazaro doesn't shit the bed.

Ah yea I forgot the existence of him.

I just hope that Conte doesn't end up using him as a LWB, you can't be in defense with just one functional foot, too much of a liability. Did alright in offense when he wasn't following Spalletti's orders with possession for the sake of possession and giving those dumb back passes to Brozovic. In a more central midfield role I do feel like Asamoah could have a great season. He is only 30 so we could really use him getting his price up too.

Wallace

Hopefully I won’t need to solo hype Sensi from now on.

Goodish first half, I feel like his set pieces will make a difference this season, instead of, you know, corner kicks that don’t get past the first defender.

Glad to see that FIF is finally realizing Sensi was not signed to be a reserve :D I can tell many of you did not see him @ Sassuolo :work:

Picked a few posts fom the pre-season match against juBentus :datass:


Sensi looks like a starting squad player today
He will always look like that, he`s natural on the ball and always knows what to do with it. Quick thinking and passing.


Sensi, he is slowly becoming my favorite Inter player.
:notbad:


Where is Nyall to tell me how shit Sensi is
He might be away buying a hat, as I expect him to eat it at some point.


Sensi :heart: finally a midfielder who's good on the ball and takes free kicks
Refreshing <3 Wait until you see him playing together with Barella! :slick:


Sensi's positioning is on point, both offensively and defensively.
He`s a smart young man and can only improve, so glad we got him and not someone like Modric.


Sensi is also looking very good. His movement is impressive.
He has what we call a footballing IQ.


Tuned in from about 20min and I'm actually quite impressed.

Also, really, really, really like Sensi.
Welcome on board!


Sensi is a fucking boss.
Yupp, our very own, brand new & fresh Pirlo.


Sensi is fantastic.. just pre-season, but is it too early to hope he doesn't catch the Inter flu?

Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
No, he will actually improve once he gets to know all his team-mates capabilities.


The kid has a lovable character, he is 100% in every match, every training, he idolizes Inter player, he wanted only Inter, he's down to earth. Let's just hope he stays that way and we might have a great player for many years to come.
+1


Hopefully Sensi can maintain his style of playing through the season. He seems to be pretty sharp so far.
Form is temporary, class is permanent. :datass:

Sensi: 'Inter on right track'
https://www.football-italia.net/sites/default/files/imagecache/main_photo/[type]/[nid]/Sensi-1907-epa.jpg

Stefano Sensi assures Inter are “on the right track” under new Coach Antonio Conte after a 1-1 draw with Juventus.

The Nerazzurri lost the penalty shoot-out in this International Champions Cup tie in Nanjing, after Matthijs de Ligt saw an own goal cancelled out by Cristiano Ronaldo.

“The Coach had asked us for intensity and to go chase down the opponents,” former Sassuolo midfielder Sensi told Inter TV.

“In my view, we had a great first half and then got a bit too deep after the break, largely thanks to the heat. We are working and trying to put the tactician’s ideas into action, especially in defence, so we are on the right track.

“We need to work on improving our possession football and vertical passing channels.”

Great, continue working hard so this can be kept for 90 minutes.

And you are not getting my point.

My point being intelligent players fluctuate less because they base their play on how they think. You don’t suddenly wake up one day and have your IQ lower for a couple of months after preseason purely out of coincidence.

This is the difference between smart and dumb players (or people in general). Of course there can be external factors, but all I am saying is such comparison hardly makes sense.

I disagree. Asamoah was playing very intelligently in his first few months. Looked like the wisest man on the pitch by some distance.

I think people underestimate how much a lack of physical fitness contributes to “dumb” plays.

Some of you are reacting like this is the first time you have seen Sensi play. We know he is a good player and what he is capable of, he has played like this many times. But lets not jump the gun over his performance in a pre-season friendly for two reasons:

1. Our benchmark for midfielders is very low, watching shite performances from Vecino and Gags day in and day out. So a half decent performance by a new player gets way too hyped. Remember Gags initial performances or even Valero's first Serie A game for us or even Asamoah last summer when he was used in the midfield?

2. The pressure of playing for Inter is way higher than what Sensi is used to at Sassuolo. There is a higher expectation of winning and consistency of performance. We will only know in 6-12 months how well Sensi can cope with this pressure.

I still consider Barella a starter for Inter over Sensi, and really want Inter to sign another quality starting midfielder. It will be great if Sensi is first choice midfielder from the bench in his first season, so he can acclimatise and develop without pressure.

Its too early on him. He is good player and will deffo bring us something new. As i said before we signed him, small but strong, technically gifted woth low point of gravity. Taking the ball off him is hard.

However, its also his first season in a big club, and that big club is freaking inter. He is still young, and its a queation mark if he can do this on regular basis. Its mostly due to mentality. We will see how it goes, but playing in friendlies is not the same as playing in serie a, let alone CL.

He had better on the ball skill than previous left backs we had yeah, but I never really liked the way he placed his passes.

If age is not a problem for old players, neither is it for young.

We have played with crapper players in CL, I don’t see a problem especially if we consider this as year zero again. Give the lads a run out this season. Can’t honestly be more embarrassing than Valero being chased to out of breath against PSV. Freaking Atalanta is playing with more unknown factors, so what? Grow some balls man.

We currently have 8 central midfielders, and that is a ridiculous number.

I wouldn’t get anyone unless we are certain we can sell at least 3 of them. Basically I don’t see the point of reinforcement when Nainggolan is standing by to be reinstated into the team anytime.

Anyway, siggraph time, don’t bother replying because I won’t be here to repudiate anymore nonsense.

The fact that Sensi can have such a big "impact" on our midfield just shows how bad our midfield actually is. Everyone basically lining up to call this guy world-class will be sorely disappointed when the pre-season ends. If we can get a serviceable player out of him we should be happy.

Stefano Sensi for Conte:
" I feel good, work pays off and comes first. Surely with dedication and desire to do we can do important things. The first thing that struck me is the winning mentality that leads, both in training and in a simple training match or an exercise. It turns it into something important. I managed to understand that laziness is something that he hates, it's something counter-productive for the team. The coach asks us so much movement, personality to go and get the ball. Brozovic is a guy that I feel good with, there's a feeling. I didn't think I could find myself so well. "

No more lazy cunts. I like that.

Recently I came across an interview with some Spanish coach Sensi had when he was playing for San Marino and Cesena.
Stefano was 18 years old or something at the time of the interview, and this Fernando De Argila (thank you, Google) who lived in Catalunya for years claimed that Sensi was "a natural talent", “a better player than Xavi and Iniesta were at his age”, and that he would have become "an important player for Italian football".

I'm not someone who gets carried away because I like to stay grounded, but let's face it: not only De Argila tenia razon (net of bias),but “important for Italian football” seems a very limited scenario to me, for this mezzala version of Sensiesta.

[I'll be ready to put a random “glorified Gargano” label on him very quickly: no half measures.]

For me, it was his turn in the box and the mindset to do so to get into a stronger position to either shoot or pass. 9.5 out of 10 players would have a shot under pressure but the mentality under that same pressure to turn says a lot.

Looking forward to watching more of that this season.

Sensi is vindicating all us Serie B watchers who rated him as one of the top talents in Italian football back in 2015. Not sure if he can sustain it, remember last season Politano was crushing it as well early on for a significant period of time and everyone thought he was the next coming of Robben.

Stefano Sensi's main weakness is his small frame and the fact that defensively he's not very imposing. We can hide that somehow, but not with Brozovic & Vecino or Brozovic & Barella next to him if the opposition has plenty of physicality in the middle.

At least he can be our main set piece taker and thankfully, Barella is almost as good so if he's rotated we'll have someone else.

Sometimes it's hard to believe he was born in Italy and not in Spain.
He certainly didn't need time to adjust to the new environment and to the pressure that comes from playing for Inter.
Keep it up, little man.

Should we get Tonali judging from Serie B?

Should we get Tonali judging from Serie B?

As I mentioned several times, even before we had Sensi or considered him, Stefano is part of a group of players that have similar characteristics and are on a similar level. The best of them was Lorenzo Pellegrini. Mandragora is another one who has always looked like the weaker one talent-wise, but he has other characteristics that make him valuable. All these guys are really what we say 'the future of Italy'. Barella is a different kind of animal but shares some characteristics with them.

Tonali is part of his own generation as there isn't anyone else. Maybe it's due to this fact that he's more hyped as there's a bias towards him, but honestly he looks much better than Verratti did back then and Verratti had Immobile + Insigne to play with and Zeman as his coach, so even then you had the fear that it was all due to the system, despite the evident quality. It was Serie B so you couldn't say how it would translate in Serie A or any top level league.

If a top team takes a bet with Sandro Tonali, imo they'll be cashing it. But it is imperative for him that he makes the jump at the end of the season the latest. Hopefully it's not Juventus. Milan could really use this guy and Napoli is an environment he'd thrive in.

Serie B is a worthwhile experience for sure, if one can be bothered with finding streams which are always very subpar in quality. What I like about it is that it's very unpredictable, you can have a team be in the top 5 only to be relegation fodder next season. It's a lot more physical but also a lot more theatrical due to far more relaxed scrutiny compared to the top tier calcio.

The biggest reasons he is playing this well are:
- He is part of a 3 man midfield, instead of 2. Vital.
- He has a solid defensive presence behind him in Skriniar, he can afford to take risks.

As for sensi , i give all the credit to him for being mentally ready to take control of our game since day one of pre season. It isn't at all common especially from someone coming from a small team

since when does FM have a difficulty level?

In my best seasons, generally, I can get to like 80-100 goals between the front 4 (I play 4-2-3-1) and obviously all the assists with that

think my goals record for a player is about 60 in a season, assist record about 40

I like the formation, the coach is someone I rate somehow despite my obvious antithesis to his hiring (since our aim is to accomplish an easy top 3 finish, but I'd feel the same way if Spalletti would come now without having any Inter history as he can also achieve that if he had the same financial backing) but the things I'm mentioning now are purely Sensi related. He ticks in this kind of environment, doesn't mean everything else will.

I still don't think that 3-5-2 is the best idea for this Inter and would insist upon a 4-3-1-2 if this was July, but we cannot go for a AMC at the moment so this will do. But people will start complaining that our midfield is losing the ball too much and there's no physicality in it and all that kind of repetitive stuff.

The Sensi-Brozovic-Barella trident should work more often than not, but when it doesn't work, the defence needs to be ultra ready. And I don't think it is. Our defensive setup is several steps behind the desired level and our creativity is still lacking. We can exploit open spaces better wtih 3 very good+ ball playing midfielders but that's not going to be a regular feat in our games.

I'm having a hard time digesting Conte ball tbh,Candreva,Vecino...feels like a really difficult dump u have to take but somehow u get rewarded for the effort...so far

4-3-1-2/4-3-3 a hybrid of the two line ups...

Sanchez/Lautaro-Lukaku
Politano
Sensi-Brozo-Barella
Asamoah-Skriniar-Godin/SDV-Dumbo
Handa

maybe a 4-3-3 ok maybe 4321,more narrow than a Spalletti special.
something like Argentina did

Lautaro-Aguero-Messi

...

Sanchez/Lautaro-Lukaku-Politano/Lazaro

relying on Candreva and his crosses....yoiks

:lol:I mean, how many developing players can really assert themselves vs the world's elite? Very few midfielders have standout games vs Barcelona and juve, but I dont think sensi is going to crumble when he plays them. The eyes are going to be on him because he isnt that midfield messiah we were all waiting for but he has all the tools necessary for success.

Ehhh Conte 3-5-2 formation relies heavily on pushing numbers forward especially our wing backs. Creativity isn't a current concern. All three of brozo sensi and barella can play a through ball. I want to see Lazaro... He needs to be able to beat his man... There will be some growing pains but we should be fine considering the depth and Options we have.

All eyes were on him and his press-conference in the first day of ritiro la Nazionale, and deservedly so.

I want to add: Sensi taking the free-kick and hitting the crossbar in matchday 2 of Serie A was possibly more heartwarming and moving than Sensi winning a penalty via ruleta on the defender.

As I said, we shouldn't forget that we haven't scored a single goal from direct free-kick in the entire 2018/19 season (for the first time in 30 years or something): it simply can't happen again, back-to-back.

Biraghi is also quite good on free kicks I believe. We have options now, with those two and Brozo.
