The best and the rest from Seria A week 2
15.9 || Seamus

Italian based reporter Dominque Antognoni highlights which individuals are on a high and a low after the Week 2 games.


The best…

Pippo Inzaghi (Milan)
Inzaghi’s goal scoring record is something to be admired but his winner against Bologna - like his final two goals against Wales - were the mark of a great striker. Against the Rossoblu at the San Siro, he freed himself from three defenders with the ease and coolness that few will be able to replicate. Why does he continue to be so undervalued?


Mario Santana (Chievo)
He was simply fantastic against Juventus. It’s not everyday that you see someone totally fool Lilian Thuram but that’s what he did in the first half. A few years ago, his agent Filippo Cavadini, tried to get Inter to sign him. Maybe they will only be interested when he has a 15m asking price.


Cristian Chivu (Roma)
Admittedly, Francesco Totti’s chip in the 5-0 win over Brescia was beautiful but Chivu took just 15 minutes to introduce himself to the Giallorossi faithful. Although he was primarily signed to strengthen the defence, his free-kick at the Olimpico was extraordinary. Potentially the signing of the summer.


The rest…

Manuel Rui Costa (Milan)
He started well in Milan’s 2-1 win over Bologna but then he seemed to struggle. It seems that nobody nowadays likens him to Johan Cruyff anymore. He joined the Rossoneri to improve as a player but the fact is that hasn’t happened. Where’s the real Rui gone?


Beppe Signori (Bologna)
Just because you have great respect for a player doesn’t mean that he has to play all of the time. Signori looked like a fish out of water at the San Siro. Bologna’s counter attacking ploy really needed someone with pace up front. Signori wasn’t that man.


Mohamed Kallon (Inter)
Talk in Milan claimed that Kallon was in fine form but he played poorly at Siena. Inter’s desperate performance overall can’t really be used as an alibi either by the striker. But then again, didn’t this club sell both Ronaldo and Hernan Crespo in consecutive summers?
