De Vrij: 'Inter can learn from defeat'

Stefan de Vrij believes Inter “will learn a lot from” their 1-0 defeat to Manchester United, as they’re getting to grips with Antonio Conte’s system.

The Nerazzurri opened their International Champions Cup campaign in Singapore with a 1-0 loss, decided by Mason Greenwood’s curling finish from a tight angle.

“Manchester United have a lot of quality, we tried to play with organisation,” the centre-back told Sportitalia.

Inter capitulate to Man Utd

Inter were beaten 1-0 by Manchester United after a Mason Greenwood goal, but were also rescued twice by the woodwork in the International Champions Cup game.

This was Antonio Conte’s first defeat on the Inter bench and he still had no genuine strikers at his disposal in Singapore, as Lautaro Martinez needed extra rest after the Copa America and Mauro Icardi has been frozen out along with Radja Nainggolan.

Romelu Lukaku, who is the subject of several offers from Inter, was left out against what could be his future club.

Milan have called up strikers Andre Silva and Patrick Cutrone for the International Champions Cup.

Silva did not take part in Milan's 1-1 draw with Novara on Friday, instead following a personalised training regime, and had been linked with a move to Monaco.

Cutrone, in turn, had been tipped to join Wolverhampton Wanderers as the Rossoneri looked to raise funds for Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa.

Commisso enjoys Chiesa company

Rocco Commisso reiterated his wish to keep Federico Chiesa after the pair watched Fiorentina beat Guadalajara 2-1 in the International Champions Cup.

The Commisso era at Fiorentina got off to a winning start in the American city of Illinois thanks to goals from Giovanni Simeone and Riccardo Sottil, although Chiesa remained a substitute.

“They played very well, I thought we’d lose because these Mexicans can play,” the new owner told Firenzeviola.it.

Inter: Nainggolan in, Icardi out

Inter have called up Radja Nainggolan for their International Champions Cup campaign, while leaving out Mauro Icardi.

Nainggolan was sent home from Inter’s training camp in Lugano over the weekend, with his future seeming further than ever away from the club.

However, the Nerazzurri confirmed on Tuesday that he would travel with the team to Singapore for the friendly tournament.

Icardi, on the other hand, continues to be excluded from Antonio Conte’s first-team plans as he is staying behind.

Fiorentina: Chiesa in, Veretout out

Federico Chiesa is in Fiorentina’s squad for the International Champions Cup, but Jordan Veretout has been left out.

Fiorentina are adamant Chiesa will not leave the club this summer, and the forward has been called up for the friendly tournament.

However, Veretout is omitted as Roma and Milan battle it out for the midfielder’s signature.

German Pezzella is also nowhere to be seen, although the defender’s exclusion is due to his recent participation at Copa America with Argentina.

“I still feel at home after having been here on pre-season training so many times,” said Montella in a Press conference, referring to his previous stint on the Fiorentina bench.

Totti's toxic Roma divorce

After 30 years of commitment, Francesco Totti walked out on the Giallorossi amid bitter recrimination. Vijay Rahaman reflects on their ugly separation.

Most divorces are bitter and normally involve laying the blame at the feet of the other party, so Francesco Totti terminating his lifelong love affair with Roma was no different. In celebrity splits, there is usually one side that is seen as the ‘bad guy’ in the breakdown of their relationship and in this case there are absolutely no doubts who the love rat is. President James Pallotta and consultant Franco Baldini are the villains of the piece. That would make Totti the Jennifer Aniston, fitting as they did have similar haircuts in the 1990s.
