“Christian Chivu can become a great coach”
Inter’s youth sector director Roberto Samaden believes that current Primavera coach Christian Chivu has the potential to be a top coach.
Speaking to Italian media TuttoMercatoWebSamaden expressed his confidence in the current Primavera manager after a successful end to the season with a 2-1 win over Roma in the Under-19 Cup.
Chivu was named head coach of the Nerazzurri’s Primavera side at the start of the season, replacing Armando Madonna in that role.
The Romanian had already established his place in Inter history by being part of the team that won the historic treble in the 2009-10 season, but is now starting to make a name for himself off the pitch too, as a coach.
Chivu’s first campaign in charge has been very encouraging, and Samaden believes he is on the way to becoming a very good manager.
“Chivu started with us and went through the whole process,” he explained, “he had the patience to do it.”
“Also, he’s certainly grown throughout this season,” he continued of the coach, “I’ve always said he has every chance of being a great coach, after to have been a great player, but above all he is a great person.”
Samaden added that “he has always set an example for all the boys he has coached, and we have to thank him for the results this season.”
