'Padelli was massacred'

Agent Silvano Martina has claimed Inter goalkeeper Daniele Padelli was wrongly targeted after the Derby della Madonnina. “He knows he’s not a phenomenon”.

When Inter were down 0-2 at half-time in the Milan derby last weekend, the goalkeeper’s agent has claimed he was “massacred with malice” and blamed for the goals conceded.

In the absence of captain and first choice Samir Handanovic, Padelli has stepped up and Martina insists that he doesn’t deserve to shoulder the blame at San Siro.

“After the derby, he was massacred,” Martina told Radio Marte. “He had no responsibility for Milan’s first goal, while he could have certainly done better on the second.

“He knows he’s not a phenomenon, but I didn’t like that he was massacred with malice.”

Emiliano Viviano has been linked with Inter to help provide back-up in the absence of Samir Handanovic, but Martina stressed that he would still be behind Padelli in the pecking order.

“I know that the club would like to know the extent of Handanovic’s injury. If Viviano were to stay, he would be a back-up to Padelli.”

Last night, Inter lost 1-0 against Napoli in the Coppa Italia and are currently preparing for their third big match in a row against Lazio this weekend.
