    Rene Krhin

    OK, I don't know if he already has his own thread, but I'm sure you all heard about him. He's Slovenian midfielder and will most likely play with first team next season. I decided to make this thread because an interesting interview with him was published in a local newspaper today.

    intro:

    Nearly 19 years old Rene Krhin trains with Inter Milan's first team under the great Jose Mourinho. The talented midfielder will most likely play his first minutes in the first team of Italian champions. In this interview we followed his path from his hometown Maribor to trainings with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and other superstars.

    Q: Rene, you'll be at home for almost two months. What's next?

    A: I'm on leave until 10th of July, then we leave for Los Angeles with the first team for two weeks, unless we qualify to U-19 Euro with the national team. I have agreed to go to training camp with the first team. I train with them for the last two months and only play matches for primavera.

    Q: How did you get from Maribor to Inter?

    A: I didn't play for 6 months due to injury. Then I played an international tournament with the national team and I hears some scouts were watching me. It was in October 2006. More clubs were interested in me, also Sampdoria and Genoa but in December we started talks with Inter. My mother wanted me to finish high school at home, but now also she realised I did the right thing to go to Milano.

    Q: You're in Italy since 2007. How do you remember your first days?

    A: Vid Belec arrived two weeks before me and he helped me a lot. I came after a longterm injury and wasn't fit for the first season. This season I played every match for primavera and Jose Mourinho noticed me. I'm very happy for that.

    Q: Was it hard to adapt to new environment?

    A: At first I didn't speak Italian and I wanet to school to learn it. In the end I learned it from speaking with my teammates. After five motnhs I felt like at home. We sleep in the campus but we train at the same facilities the first team uses. I have my own room and the staff takes good care of us.

    Q: What's your everyday like?

    A: At 9am we can go to fitness if we want to, at 12 we have lunch. At 2pm we go to Appiano Gentile where we train for two hours. After training we have dinner and then we're free until 11pm. Twice a week we have double training sessions but if we play two matches in one week, we train very little.

    Q: You said you train with the first team. How did this start?

    A: In the first trainings there were 5 or 6 of us. Mourinho said he'll test us and take 3 to summer training camp. When he saw what he wanted to see he talked to each of us. He told me I'll play some games next season at latest. He wants a younger and more Italian team. Davide and Mario are already in the first team but he wants 3 more from primavera to join them. Vid (Belec) is there as 3rd or 4th keeper, he also mentioned Obi, Destro and me.

    Q: How do first team players treat you?

    A: At first they let you know you're not one of them yet. After a couple of trainings, when they saw I'll play with them soon they started talking with me. Cambiasso and Stankovic are the most open persons.

    Q: Ibrahimovic?

    A: He's very nice but a little different. He doesn't bond with other players. He's a little above them.

    Q: What happened with Adriano?

    A: We saw him a couple of times when he came to the training straight form the nightclub. It all started when his father died...

    Q: Nightlife in Milano must be very tempting...


    A: I almost never go out in Milano. I go out with my friends at home (Maribor), but in Milano I stay in campus. The clubs are full of beautiful girls and all the first team players are there. Some of my teammates are all crazy about these clubs and all they think about are parties.

    Q: How is with the money? Do you get good wage?

    A: Every primavera player gets a contract, the wage depends on the deal. First year you start with minimal wage, then it's up to you to earn a payrise. The better you play the better wage your agent can get you.

    Q: Did you advance in that matter?


    A: Yes, I did.

    Q: How would you compare your income with Slovenian wages in football?

    A: I'm happy with what I get. I really can't compare because I don't know what players earn in Slovenia. I have a contract untill 2011, and being called to the first team I have good chances to improve my contract an prolong it for a couple of years.

    Q: Could you go on loan in the next season?

    A: For now I'm in the first team. I have opions to go to lesser Serie A teams or to Serie B teams that fight for promotion. I could play a season or two there and if I were good I'd return to Inter. It's a great advantage to come from a club as big as Inter.

    Great interview, thanks for sharing it -- he sounds like a really level-head kid.

    He's also captaining Slovenia right now @ the U19s, or at least he did yesterday against Russia.

    Thanks for that interview tritolone, very interesting stuff.

    That Ibra comment, pretty much expected. He's above the other squad in skills so he acts like a primadonna there. We don't need such players.

    Krhin sounds like a down-to-Earth guy, that's promising. Is he a pure central midfielder?

    He's like Lampard style. Today he played Russia with u-19 team. It was 3-3.

    Good remark about Zlatan, who should know that vanity is a deadly sin

    I think it will be better for him to play one year on loan at Serie B as a regular rather than playing for Primavera or a few games for the 1st team. Or if Mourinho believes he's ready to play 15-20 games for Inter next season then he should stay.

    So those are Uefa U19 Euro Championships. Damn, it would have been important to have Khrin in the pre-season.

    From uefa.com:

    The finals kick off on 21 July, with the top two in each section after the three group games have been played progressing to the semi-finals, which will be held in Donetsk and Mariupol on 30 July. The final will take place at the Olimpiyskyi Stadium in Donetsk on 2 August.

    So he definitely won't leave for America tour with Inter.

    Nah, I do not think he will play a big role in our team next year anyway. Let him play with Slovenia and gain some international experience. Missing just the pre season is fine because he will be training with the first team for a LONG time before making debut like Santon.

    Of course he must play with the National team, there have even been talks about him debuting for the men's national team. In U-19 he's the captain and dictates the play and does basically everything other than scoring goals.

    I have looked every where on youtube for some vision of him and found nothing... Does anyone have some footage of him in action either with us or with Slovenia??

    Sergio Busquets

    Europe

    height: 186 cm
    weight: 90 kg.

    He has a good height and guess he will go up to 190 cm by the time, but seems too heavy for that height, doesn't he?
