Udinese ace Deulofeu hails Inter Milan pair Barella, Brozovic

Udinese ace Gerard Deulofeu has sung the praises of Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella.

Udinese stunned Inter before the international break.

But on Barella, Deulofeu told Mundo Deportivo: “He is phenomenal. The other day, I asked to exchange shirts with him after the game. He scored a fantastic free kick against us and is a real symbol of Inter. I'd say he is the Xavi of Inter. He wants to win and bring Inter to the top."

On Marcelo Brozovic, he also said: “He is the compass and offers himself up for the pass every time. I had to work hard defensively to help neutralise him and I think we did it very well at Udinese.

“Brozovic is very organised, sees the game well. Barcelona are very focused on themselves and their touches, but we at Udinese had to also think about the quality at Inter and try to neutralise them."
