‘Juan Jesus one to follow’

Former Milan and Italian international Alessandro Costacurta has spoken of his admiration for Juan Jesus of Inter.

“I thought he did very well against Torino on Sunday night,” the former centre-back told Sky Sport Italia. “This boy has also impressed for Brazil. He’s a really interesting player.”

The 21-year-old joined the Nerazzurri in January 2012 after a deal was done with Brazilian side Internacional.

The youngster, who signed a contract until 2016 with the outfit, has made just two Serie A appearances for the Nerazzurri.

He helped his national side collect a silver medal at the 2012 Olympic Games.
