Primavera success

Primavera team won again. I wonder if those boys will ever get a chance to play for Inter? Quite frustrating...

that's what Fachetti's saying, although I don't trust him...

A positive sign for the future is Inter Primavera's Coppa Italia triumph. "I followed the match on TV and I'm happy for our boys," Facchetti said. "The youth sector is giving us good results which take on more importance considering that UEFA is encouraging the development of young talents. Over the last ten years Inter has redoubled its and the public's attention to the youth sector, who we congratulate."

Well within a few years, UEFA will require that Inter have several 'homegrown' players on their 25 man list. So we'll have to start playing some of these younger guys eventually...

And when I think about it, I'd rather have some younger kids that we've developed at Inter sitting on the bench than veterans who are over the hill (Kily, Mihajlovic, Ze Maria, Cesar, etc....) and won't play much anyways. At least with the kids there is the chance they might develop into a contributor.

I doubt we will pay any attention to the new uefa rulings anyway. For Inter the case will always be that some average mercenary foreigner will be better than a die-hard homegrown Inter player.

just for the record, within a few years, I think the rules will demand that of our 25 man list submitted to UEFA for the champions league and uefa cup, 4 players will have to be Inter homegrown (meaning they signed with Inter BEFORE they turned 16) and 8 others that are Italy homegrown (were playing in Italy before they turned 16). If I'm not mistake, the rule will start to be implemented next season, though with less requirements than what they will have a little later down the road (I think you might only need two club homegrown players next season, or something like that). The point is, it will be difficult to just ignore it altogether. But anyway, if Roma can churn out De Rossi, Aquiliani, Okaka, and others (not to mention Totti), I don't see why Inter shouldn't strive to have a similar program.
