Bologna captain Marco Di Vaio has warned teammate Emiliano Viviano against joining Inter at the end of the season.
Viviano is part owned by the Nerazzurri and there are rumours that he could be signed outright by the San Siro giants during the summer.
However, fearing that he may have to play a back-up role to Julio Cesar, Di Vaio has urged the goalkeeper to consider his options carefully.
“It's my belief that Viviano would make a grave error in joining Inter,” the former Parma and Juventus striker noted.
“He's a young guy and needs to play on a regular basis rather than sitting on the bench at a big club.
“I tell him as much all the time.”
Viviano is one of Italy's most promising ‘keepers and he's now recognised as Gigi Buffon's understudy with the national side.
