The spearhead in Inter Milan’s NextGen Series triumph and now he’s heading for the first team at the San Siro – Daniel Bessa will one day be a name that you’ll be unable to get out of your head.
He is described to have a touch that we’ve only ever seen from the likes of Xavi and Wesley Sneijder and this season he has made a huge development and impression on the whole of Europe.
The Italian’s youth system has really picked up in recent years and Bessa joins the likes of Lorenzo Crisetig and Samuele Longo that people are expecting to rise from the youth system into the first team at the south European side.
The 19-year-old was born in Sao Paolo, Brazil with an Italian heritage through his family. He has already played for Inter’s senior side in a number of friendlies at the start of this season but was sent back to the Primavera side for further development. He is a right-footed attacking midfielder not lacking any confidence. At such a young age, confidence is key in order to make the step up to the senior side and Bessa doesn’t look afraid to command the pitch and pushing his physical limits to the maximum.
As with any young player, his reading of the game needs some improvement and sometimes his final ball is a few inches short, but nevertheless Bessa will continue to learn at Inter’s academy and I’m sure he will be tested in the first team in the upcoming pre season with a view to include him in some more senior action next season.
He is a very mature player already and highly regarded as one of the best young talents in Italy. There is no doubt that we’ll be watching him in action next season for one of the best side’s on the planet.
