He looked very solid defensively but almost every offensive move was wrong. I was expecting the opposite. I guess he'll need to be integrated slowly in the team since it'll destroy his confidence if he keeps making the wrong moves every time he goes forward. Hopefully he'll start by September.

Yuto Nagatomo is ahead of Dalbert to start against Fiorentina this weekend Gazzetta dello Sport detail. Over the course of the week, Dalbert must convince Luciano Spalletti that he has learnt and fully understands the defensive system that Spalletti has put in place to start ahead of the Japanese international.

I would like to extend my warm welcome to Dalbert, 20M euro Vice Nagatomo :troll:

Jokes apart, I don't mind Nagatomo at Inter. He is a likeable loyal guy, very professional, loves the club, works hard, does not complain about bench time, etc etc. And I am sure just the merchandise and ticket sales to his far east fans covers his wages... every time I have been at the San Siro in the last few years, there have been 100s, maybe 1000s of them.

I just don't want him to ever start for Inter in a competition that matters.

that's me exactly. I don't mind him on the team but I just don't want to ever ever start a game or be a first choice on the pitch anywhere.

Not racist, just fact. Nagatomo is one of our highest shirt sellers, mostly to his Japanese fans. Just like we used to have a lot of Brasilian fans when we signed Ronaldo, and Argie fans during the asado era. I will leave you with an endearing image of San Siro during a derby:

Just because we sell a lot of shirts doesn't mean we make loads of money off of it. Nike keeps most of that money.

Also a bit presumptuous to assume that all those East Asian fans in San Siro are Japanese and/or there because of Nagatomo.

There is one Chinese player signed with wolfsburg two years ago when they finished second that year right under BM. (Actually he is top midfielder in Chinese league). He came back after half season.
People call him Marketing midfielder since then
