Yeah De Vrij does intentionally all that nasty stuff. He's a very smart player.

If he can win Doina, he must be a smart man.

Any examples of the stuff he (or Skriniar) did to Ibra? Not that I'm doubting, but I missed it during the game.

Well, he said in that recent interview that Conte is telling him that he is too nice and that he is forcing him to add a bit of cunningness to his game.

the same with Mourinho when he handle Tot on the 1st season. All Tot players are too kind.

if Conte did the same with De Vrij, its make sense now why Lukaku is bitching about services from our wing player. Conte also mention that he's happy when Lukaku angry and face Zlatan in Coppa match.

Defending 101

It's harder now with the cameras, but little nudges here there, elbows and arms flailing when contesting headers, troding on ones toes, shoulder barging, pinching, etc trying to get into the attackers head. I'm surprised a professional of DeVrijs calibre needs to be told to do this.

Sorry guys, I'm not the one who spend time searching for videos. Basically before heading the ball de Vrij tackled/pushed Ibra in the back to make him miss? This made him really mad, Skriniar did the same thing but only once I think. The reason I think Ibra was mad is because he started to try at every possible moment do something back at Skriniar and de Vrij.

Needs to do more playmaking and cross-field passes (like the long pass to Perishit in the first-half, exquisite). He's capable.

He doesn't get the appreciation he deserves. I think he is the best CB (top 10 in fact) that Inter could have realistically hoped to get. For the few CB's that are better than him, Inter wouldn't have been an all to attractive destination to their alternatives. Also just to remind you all, we got him for fucking free in his prime years. We should count ourselves lucky.

He did just win the Serie A defender of the year award last year...I think he's appropriately appreciated.

He has been a great defender for many years, and last season was his best of his career so far. He has been amazing in his role in the middle of a 3 man defence at Inter. World class by any definition. And he gets the recognition too, last year like ADRossi said he won the Serie A defender of the year. Deservingly so.

He’s probably overshadowed by fan favourite Skriniar and huge potential Bastoni but we wouldn’t be where we are right now without De Vrij. Top 10 CB in the world who’s calmness, experience and composure set the tone in our back 3. And not a single euro for a transfer fee. Not a bad piece of business for a guy who’s probably worth €60m in the market.

I meant more so underappreciated by Inter fans. As Choppin Onions said Skriniar is just simply more likeable and Bastoni is a young italian.

Trust me, the reason Skriniar is a fan favorite is because he is the best in the league not because he yells with his veins popping up. And even considering him a fan favorite is a bit of a exaggeration. Many wanted him gone for Kumbulla just this summer while hyping de Vrij the ballplaying defender who plays in a position where David Luiz looks like Maldini.

The only three i see that could do better in the middle of 3 men defence formation atm are Ramos, Van Dijk and Koulibaly - actually his skillset is similar to Ramos. There are only a few players that I rate as much as him. I'd also say he is better in his position than Bastoni and Skriniar at their, which can only be the highest praise
