Was ass yesterday other than the goal, and that's twice in this CL group that he's let someone (Dan Burn first then Giroud) absolutely overwhelm him on a headed challenge leading to PSG conceding.

Looks a long way from the 1st season Spalletti/2nd season Conte Skriniar we know, but it is mainly an environment issue. Hakimi looked awful too.
when you replace him with a guy, that has played a right back for his whole career and you don't notice any difference, expect better offensive movement and passing, you know you're not needed. The guy has been an average defender for the last 4 years and I am happy we ain't overpaying his ass.

It's also a system issue. They leave their defenders exposed. They did it with Galtier and they do it now with Luis Enrique. For all the excessive spending PSG have had their midfield looks unimpressive.

I never understood the hype around him as RCB, but he was very solid as CB together with Miranda.
The most painful is how Zhang blocked his 50mln sale.

It's also about dynamics, Inter has a positive dynamic since last scudetto, everyone who comes here do it better than in previous clubs.

Speed and positional awareness aren’t his strength. He’s good at 1 on 1 mostly

Taking PSG money looks like a great decision for him right now.
everytime i see his name pop up on twitter, PSG fans only shit on him... I'd feel bad, but he's got a lot of money for playing in a recreation league, so don't care. Could be a career ender, wouldnt give two shits about it.

He looks like one of my finance bro bosses who was a total d bag…..

Look mad we lost money by not selling him but are better off now with a way better defense than before.

Only transfer that hurts was Hakimi

I am pretty sure that last thing was a dig at Skriniar.

Marotta - "We have no worries because there are no players who are releasing themselves, so we want to consolidate the relationship with those players who demonstrate the desire to wear that shirt like Lautaro and Barella, but there is no rush. The good thing is that we have dealing with professionals who have an excellent opinion of the Inter brand."

He's talking about Cuadrado.

He can't be throwing digs at Skriniar after shopping him around for years, every couple of months
It could still be true that Skriniar himself wanted to be sold. Maybe, I don't believe that, but it is possible, no matter what was Skriniar saying in interviews.

Considering that Darmian, Pavard and even Bisseck look better as RCB, Marotta was right in his decision. The only bad thing was that we couldn't monetize Skriniar's departure.

Skriniar could have stayed at CB given how bad De Vrij was.

Until Marotta fixed that mess by finally committing to a new deal, which ironically seemed the only thing impacting his performance...

The f*ck? Let's wait and see how Bisseck will play against the best players in the world. Or are we going to compare Bisseck 387 minutes against mid-table teams to Skirniar who was a top defender in his prime? I know the hate Skriniar is getting but let's stay serious.

That is why I wrote LOOK.
