Inter Milan legend Esteban CAMBIASSO came out and stated that Lautaro MARTIEZ is a in between Gonzalo HIGUAIN and Mauro ICARDI.
Esteban CAMBIASSO knows a thing or two about top strikers. Playing alongside the likes of Hernan CRESPO, Adriano and Diego MILITO just to name a few, the now retired former treble winner spoke to Sky Sport Italia about Racing Club’s Lautaro MARTINEZ as well as Mauro ICARDI. Here’s what he had to say:
“ICARDI? In Argentina, there’s always talk about the abundance of quality that the coach SAMPAOLI has in attack. I think that’ll lead to HIGUAIN, AGUERO and Lautaro MARTINEZ being taken to the World Cup, which is very good.
“Can he play with ICARDI? Good players can always play together. As for his quality, he’s more similar to HIGUAIN, although Pipita is stronger outside the box.
“He’s in between [HIGUAIN] and ICARDI. As for ICARDI, I think the fault lies with the way [Inter] play. They’re not supporting him enough.”
Speaking about the World Cup, it’s never a bad time to post this video of CAMBIASSO’s greatest ever goal. The second in Argentina’s 6-0 win against Serbia and Montenegro at the 2006 World Cup.
