Bastoni is the best ball playing center back in the league, soon to be best center back in the league. Then it will be Europe. The technique, vision, accuracy, placement and defensive awareness he has, being a 21 years old center back is just incredible. He is not perfect but damn he is already VERY good.
He has the feet of a trequartista, the brain of a regista and the size of a centerback. He is also learning to play viciously. I remember him bullying Bale during the Euros.

What the f*ck is this guy...

So apparently somebody told him before the Torino match to not go into the box when we have a corner and voila...he scores a goal.

I like Bastoni a lot but can admit that he can be tactically undisciplined often, intentionally. I mean he did (jokingly) say he was a midfielder playing in defence. It doesn't damage us because we face shitty opposition 3 times out of 4 but these shenanigans do make us vulnerable to counters. Even Conte screamed at him often when he pulled those stunts.
If we do stuff like that, Liverpool will score 5 goals against us. Time and place for everything, you can't call an audible whenever you see fit. But I'm not worried, stuff like that comes with experience, guy is 22.

He is also really fortunate to be managed by Inzaghi who is more attacking-minded than most. This shit would not fly under your average Serie A coach. I mean principally, not because Bastoni lacks what it takes obviously. I will say again that I really like Bastoni despite this coming off as criticism, he is one of the rare few players who actually look like they are having fun while playing football in this rigid overly calculated era we are in.

tbh, the important thing for Bastoni is to know when to balance it. Dont do it in bigger games except the very obvious times, in the softer games you can take more freedom.

I was always fascinated from defenders that had the ability to score many goals, that's why i always liked Materazzi for example. As opponent youre constantly under pressure when defenders or generelly all players are becoming dangerous. For example Real Madrid, they would have probably won less Trophies in this years without Ramos, it's a bonus for the team that makes it really difficult for other teams.

Bastonis goal and assist was incredible. Everyone can create somthing in this Inter, this is the mentality that i like to see.
