Juan Musso has heaped praise on Romelu Lukaku while listing out his qualities.

Inter Milan fluffed their chances of closing the gap with Juventus at the top of the table after being held to a draw against Cagliari last weekend.

On the next day, Juventus followed with a loss against Napoli. And although they still have a comfortable 3-point lead, Juve will be disappointed for not being able to extend it.

Inter Milan now prepare to face Udinese in their next Serie A outing. And ahead of the weekend’s clash, Udinese goalkeeper Juan Musso took time out to praise Romelu Lukaku and Samir Handanovic. The 25-year old also labeled the Inter Milan skipper as the best shot-stopper in the league.

“Lukaku is physically devastating,” Musso told¬†Gazzetta dello Sport’s¬†SportWeek.

“He has a nice left foot and he’s an intelligent player, he always makes the right decision in the final third. He’s formed a beautiful partnership with Lautaro.

“The strongest goalkeeper in Serie A is Handanovic. I like him because he is calm and good with the ball at his feet. The best in the world is Oblak of Atletico Madrid, then Ter Stegen of Barcelona. Then it’s Handanovic again.”
