Marco Benassi
Position: DM
A bit like: Thiago Motta
Chance of first team action this season: 25-30%, I dont expect to see him play barring maybe a call up in the Coppa Italia, a few minutes in the EL, or in an injury crisis in the first team
Chance of loan next season: Very high. He needs, as stated below, game time experience. 38 games in Serie B would do him very well.
Chance of staying at Inter in the long term: Very high. He's a type of player - in the long run - that could fix alot of the midfield issues we have, and he will be nurtured very carefully.
Introduction:
A player in particular I've been talking about for a long time, he went under the apprentice programme last season (as a reserve to the primavera main players) and has developed a lot for it. One of our younger players once highlighted him as being better than Bessa, he's dominating the midfield this season. Its worth highlighting in particular his goal against Dortmund in the NextGen series. He's got great technique, a good ability to sit back, late into the box too. He's got good passing range, and has some decent playmaking skills too. With his recent (rather publicized) renewal until 2017, he's held in high regard at Inter. On the downside, it basically boils down to experience. He needs to improve his game reading, tactical side, and overall experience and stuff. He's a great young prospect, I have high hopes for him, and he just needs some game time and to be slowly worked into the first team. As well as this, increasing his technical side (possession under pressure, for example) would be a great benefit.

I thought he was really impressive last night. Calm under pressure, looking to pass forwards rather than back, calm in possession. Good debut. Cant wait to see more of him.

I thought this kid was very promising and really hope with his development people will stop bitching about Poli. If Duncan is better than this kid like many here have said then we didn't really need him anyway. I hope we start him or at least give him minutes in our last group stage game in Europa league

Duncan and Benassi are very different players. Duncan is a lot more Guarin-esque. They don't conflict for me at all - infact I would suggest they might even be perfect foils for each other in central midfield.


Benassi Duncan


.. Bessa

I think Benassi can be a mix of T.Motta and Pirlo , good control of ball, good passing if we develop him and watch him closely he can be a really good player for us in the future

We have a similar midfielder to this guy in Cristeg as well correct? (I know you don't rate him Browha) And a new deep lying playmaker in Tassi now that he's playing deeper. Between these kids SOMEBODY has to make it at the top level. Please?

I dont dislike Crisetig, I hope he succeeds. I just don't see what people rant and rave about. He's not developed, in my book, one inch in the last 3 years since he got called up to Italy U-21 as the youngest ever (he's only got 3 caps - all in friendlies - for them to this day).

Yes, between Tassi, Del Piero, Benassi, Crisetig, Duncan, you'd bloody hope at least 2 of them 'make it'

Isn't Mbaye super promising as well considering how young he is? I mean these kids don't need to be Messi but I hope a couple of them are at least as good as Obi and good enough to at least warm the bench

i was just talking about midfielders.

Mbaye has the potential to be very VERY good, if he sorts his temperment out.

what's about Olsen? I thought that kid was our most promising deep lying midfielder.

I dont know why but i see more De Rossi-esque like from this player, this player seems brings the same thing "confidence".

Olsen is more advanced than that. Midfield or attacking midfield - normally AMC.

Really impressed me today. That 60 metres crosses were very precise, just into feet. He needs to play more in Serie A.

Is it just me or does he really remind me a bit of Motta. Of course, its too early to tell, but already at this age he has great vision and pin point passing with accuracy on top of that. A real potential gem we have here for the midfield, i would even advocate for him to go on loan to a Serie B team that would use and play him consistently that would even further help him develop his game.

Yeah, he really does, doesn't he.

What I liked most - and hadn't seen so much of previously - was the long range pin point passing. He's very good under pressure and keeping possession, but I hadn't seen so much of that side of his game until tonight.
