Sebastiano Esposito was the latest player to be subjected to a live question and answer session on Inter’s social media channels and the teen sensation firstly spoke on his first senior goal which game against Genoa.
“Lukaku told me go on the ball and score, I was not tense, I felt the fans hope that I would score, it was a wonderful feeling, the fans and Romelu allowed me to make the dream of my life come true,” he began the session which was broadcast earlier on today.
He then spoke on his passion for football: “I was born with a passion for football, my dad and my whole family have always been into football.
“I love the history of Inter, it is a history which few clubs have. I joined a large family where everyone loves each other and above all wants the best for this shirt.
“Playing in Serie A for this team I think is every boy’s dream, I have to give everything, more than 100%.”
The youngster’s good relationship with Inter striker Romelu Lukaku has been well documented and he went on to discuss how it all came about.
“I have a good relationship with Romelu, it was born immediately, right from the first friendlies we played. If I could steal something from him? His goals! Few players have scored like him. When I talk to him he spurs me on a lot.
“I have an amazing relationship with him and D’Ambrosio. I was very well received in the first team, being part of this group makes me proud, on the field we have a great responsibility when wearing this shirt.
“Every day in the dressing room the team give me advice to improve myself, the most important piece of advice is to continue to work and be humble. To do this job it takes dedication and a desire to improve, these are the main tips that staff and teammates give me.”
He then spoke on his relationship with midfielder Borja Valero: “We are close and I miss his advice.”
Esposito then went on to speak about who his childhood idols were when he was growing up, named his best Inter starting XI and also shared his hopes for the future.
“My idol as a child was Totti, I was not old enough to watch Il Fenomeno Ronaldo when he was at Inter but I saw many of his videos, he was really crazy and one of the strongest strikers in the world.
“If I had to make a team of players from past and present then I would certainly put Handanovic in the goal, for me he is one of the strongest goalkeepers around, in defence I would have de Vrij or Samuel, Materazzi, Maicon, Zanetti then Stankovic, Brozovic and Milito, Ronaldo, Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
“I hope many beautiful things happen in the future and I hope they will come. When I go to sleep I always dream of winning something with the Nerazzurri and with the national team. “
Esposito then discussed what kind of striker he sees himself as and the importance of family to him.
“I think I am a modern striker because I like to do both phases, both defensive and offensive, I help the defensive department a lot, I like to chase opponents, like player I would like to look like Diego Milito, he was very strong.
“I think my parents are proud of me, as they are of my brothers too, family is very important to me and they always support me.”
He concluded by giving some advice for people to follow during the current crisis period: “My advice for this period is to stay at home and do things that we cannot normally do in our daily routine.”
