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.

How to use Fabian Ruiz

Napoli’s Coppa Italia victory against Inter should give Gennaro Gattuso insight in getting the best out of Fabian Ruiz, writes Kaustubh Pandey.
