YOUTH TEAMERS IN THE FIRST TEAM - LUCA FRANCHINI

APPIANO GENTILE – Inter Youth Team captain Luca Franchini is among seven of Corrado Verdelli's youngsters called up to the first team for tomorrow's Coppa Italia match against Bari.

A left-footed player, Franchini played at left-back until two years ago, when Verdelli moved him to the centre of defence. This year, Franchini has inherited the captain's armband from Nicola Beati and leads the back line with personality and charisma.

Born in Milan on 31 December 1983, he has made 48 appearances for the youth team, with one goal to his credit, which was scored in this year's edition of the Primavera Coppa Italia.
