I'm Colombian .. and Inter fan of course, I'm so shocked about this transfer of Rivas to Inter...because we knew he had offers from clubs from Germany and Spain, but not a clue about inter, but this is great !!!

I can tell you about Rivas that he played the last 6 months in River Plate, is really really fast for a defender his size (like the article says, pretty much like A. Perea form Atl. Madrid) he is a tough defender, you wont get past him easily, believe me ... Let me tell you one thing; the transfer from Colombian Football to River was also very quick, and River Fans didn't know who Rivas was. But in the first match he played, at the end of the game they were already chanting his name!! something like 'negro, negro!!' which means 'black , black' :D but not offending him, but in a cool way.

Anyway, i think one thing he has to improve is his positioning, its not really good.

It is true that in the final games of last season he was benched, but it was because he had a minor injury ... He play center back, he's right footed. He played a game or 2 as a RB (definitely not his natural position)

IMO i think he is a good investment, he is not really expensive and might prove some people wrong.

Thanks for the info!

We lack right footed defenders simple as that. I dont expect much from him if he is actually coming which means he can only improve.

If he turns out to be another Wome Im gonna murder someone.

If he's really joining, I just hope he does better than Nelson Vivas. :| Also, I hope this means the end to the Chivu transfer saga. In all honestly, I would have preferred if our central defenders stay exactly the same for next season.

Thanks for the INFO alexanderv33 :cool:

Handoyo, i believe Chivu will be LB to replace Grosso ;)

about this guy : i don't know him but he seems to me the next Cordoba :)
quick and agressive :D If we really bought him, i believe he will be loaned out to prove himself in Serie A.
[and also because we still have the ORIGINAL Cordoba lol... but he is loosing speed :(]
so a long term replacement for Cordoba is not a bad idea... i think we afford to gamble on this guy and he might
turn out to be a good signing like Maicon :) we still can rely on Burdisso and Chivu on the future + Andreolli if he can improve.

Vivas will probably be loaned out because of the non eu passport issue.

To Serie B team? I don't think so, I believe it will be Empoli again. :)

That would be a great move, because they also play UEFA next season

Lets not listen to those colombian people about this guy until he plays for us and prove his worth but from my first impression of him is that he seems to be a no nonsense defender and an almost similiar player like matrix.Maicon wasnt heard of either and wasnt even in national team until he came to us so just wait and see.Rivas is going to be on loan to another club according to reports to accomadate the arrival of veron sadly.

Well, this is a forum to express opinions about inter, so this "Lets not listen to those colombian people ...." sounds very disrespectful to me, i´m colombian :frustrat:

I don't think he means it in a disrespectful way, well at least that's what it sounds to me. To me it would make sense what the Colombian people would say about a Colombian player would be a bit biased, and so would take it with a pinch of salt.

Rumours.: he is bought only to "thanks" Hidalgo - his agent, for the free transfer of Crespo(since he is also Crespo agent and negotiated with Chelsea probably).
I think he just got some money thanks to that transfer or something like that.
so I guess he will be loaned out
