Capello highlights the difference between Barella and Hakimi

Fabio Capello, the former coach of AC Milan and Real Madrid, praised Nicolo Barella, the star of Inter Milan, who puts great levels with the Nerazzurri.

The 24-year-old has scored 3 goals in 34 matches he played this season and has also made 10 assists. “Barella is without a doubt one of the three best midfielders in Europe”, Capello told Sky Sports Italy .

He added, “He has vision, endurance, quality, and speed. He does everything right … Hakimi also has speed, but the difference is that Hakimi’s speed gets him to the penalty area, while Barella passes the balls accurately.”

The veteran coach continued: “Barella takes the ball back, then passes it to start the moves. Inter Milan has changed with him.”
