Argentina and football legend Gabriel Batistuta recently gave an interview with Sky Sport Italia where he discussed Lautaro Martinez and Mauro Icardi leaving Inter on loan.
Gabriel Batistuta knows a thing or two about scoring goals. Scoring over 200 goals during his playing career, Batistuta had this to say about Lautaro Martinez and Mauro Icardi. Here’s what he had to say:
“They are two great players. They are both goalscorers. When Icardi was at Inter he scored a lot of goals, I don’t know why they sent him away.
“Was it because of problems in the locker room? It is good justification but even still I would have kept a player like that but I am not in the dressing room. If they sent him away for this it means that the problem was serious and could not be solved in a short time.
“Lautaro Martinez is already a champion. He scores in all sorts of ways, helps out his teammates, is smart and fast and I like him.”
