It has taken a few years for Inter to realize this,but Gary Medel has upside as a centre-back. The first 37 minutes of yesterday’s Derby were proof that the Chilean international can do for Inter what he does for his country. 
 
Roberto Mancini and Frank De Boer have missed a trick here, one that Stefano Pioli didn’t hesitate to pull off as soon as he coached his first game.
 
Unlucky to go off hurt, the Pitbull showed he was the answer to a back line that is often criticized to be too soft, enough to convince Inter to look for a new defender, whether Ezequiel Garay or Viktor Lindelof.
 
In just under 30 minutes, Medel and Miranda have proved that they can be the pair Inter need, perhaps one of the best in Serie A. The former Sevilla defender may not be modern protoypical defender, but he has something in common with Fabio Cannavaro: a small player who is explosive, who can hold up against more physical opponents than he.
