Martinez Quarta: The New Otamendi?

Your Daily Dose of Inter News


With the now certain departure of Godin, the team coached by Antonio Conte needs a defender who can live up to the performance offered by the Uruguayan during the last season.

Bastoni is very promising but still does not offer the guarantees to be an immovable starter. For this reason, in my opinion inter needs a defender who can alternate with him, ensuring continuity. The player who can be the perfect fit for Steven Zhang’s team is Lucas Martinez Quarta.

Lucas Martinez Quarta is an argentinian Center Back who currently plays for River Plate. He is 23 years old, is 181 cm tall and weights 75 kg.

He has a very hard and decisive style of play, he intervenes on the ball with confidence and is very safe in the 1 against 1 duels. This year he played 19 games scoring a goal and more importantly, making it difficult for the opposing strikers to play. In addition to his very strong and authoritarian style of play, it is impossible not to mention his good individual technique, which allows him to start the plays from behind, often with long throws in search of the forwards or openings in the direction of the wings. In my opinion his way of playing is perfect for a 3-man defense like the black-blue one, and I think that under the constant guidance of experienced central defenders like Skriniar and De Vrij, the young Argentinean can express his full potential.

For technical and physical characteristics he reminds me of Otamendi of Manchester City and I think he has all the tools to reach his level in the future.
