Toldone interview

This has been a quiet season so far for Francesco Toldo who has been relegated to the bench by newcomer Julio Cesar. Now, after weeks without any first team action, the Italian goalkeeper spoke about his current situation.

“I’m out due to technical choice: if only I knew it before I would have made different choices. If at the start of the year Inter had told me about this situation, I would have made other choices. Instead I was told other things. Now I know that I don’t play due to technical choices, but I hope that there is no prejudice against me.

“Last year I won the Coppa Italia as a starter. I pushed the cart for many years and for Inter I gave up the national team. However, with Buffon’s injury, if Lippi would call me back, I would return. But I don’t play and I can’t show my value.

Toldo believes that with this year’s defence, he would have done well too.

“This year the defensive department is stronger. With Samuel we strengthened ourselves; if only I had such a defence...

“I don’t feel inferior to him (Julio Cesar): he’s young, but once to become an Inter goalkeeper you needed experience…”

I think he should be patient on the other hand Inter should have clarified him that he's not going to make first XI this season... Personally, I am unsure of what the outcomes would have been if we played Toldo instead of Cesar... not that much of a difference, maybe

I think Toldo would have saved us against Juve and Palermo, I dont belive in Cesar actully, I think he is the main point of our lose against Juve and Palermo, he have accepted easy goals IMO in those 2 games, and stupe dmistakes by him, he isnt experianced enough like Toldo, maybe he did some superb saves, but even the shitest GKs in the world can do some times this stuff, but to take responsabilty in big games, I dont think Cesar is that guy YET,he nothing compares with superb Toldo whatever he do, maybe Toldo have made some few mistakes, but under this condition with this stronger team and specially in defence with the returning of JZ, I can say that we can break Milan`s record last year in the CL in less goals scored in them.

Toldo has more natural talent than Cesar, but then has always been prone to what seems like nervousness. Overall I think Cesar has played alright, but it is interesting how Mancini hasn't really given Toldo a shot this season. Still, going to the media like Toldo did shows he isn't a model professional. I don't believe in censoring players, but Toldo has displayed a lack of class.

continues with Inter.it today

MILAN - (ANSA) - On his arrival at the Lega Calcio offices today Nerazzurri president Giacinto Facchetti stated firmly, and with a hint of bitterness, that the problem is not Francesco Toldo's strongly criticised comments, but Sunday's defeat against Juventus.

"I believe we're losing sight of the main problem, which is Sunday's defeat," Facchetti said. "To understand why we gave this performance is what interests us most."

As far as Toldo is concerned, Facchetti added: "There's no doubt he got his timing wrong. He should not have spoken after the defeat and in any case he should have spoken about all his thoughts with Mancini. It has been written that he could be left out of the squad, but none of us have ever said this.

" Toldo knows full well that he was wrong to say these things after a defeat, so tomorrow we will talk about it with Mancini. But I repeat, the problem is absolutely not this. It's Sunday's defeat."

You can insert Frey with Toldo too

It's still a shame we let Frey leave one season too early. Eversince the other clubs he's played for has given him support, he's been one of the best goalies in italy. Maybe only a shade behind Buffon and Dida.
