It’s okay to sacrifice, but if the results are poor why not change? Over the past four years Cristian Chivu has asked himself this several times, but to play for Inter he has always accepted the role as a left-back. "Everybody knows, the left-back is not my natural role, I am a central defender or central midfielder. Just ask Maicon to be a midfielder or Samuel to play quarterback ... "he said with irony in a recent interview. Hard to blame him, because from the midfield the results are always there. And the good performance in Lille cannot be defined as a coincidence.

It is from the central role that Chivu has become one of the strongest defenders of Europe. Before at Ajax, under Ronald Koeman, then Rome, where he also played next to Samuel, now his partner at Inter. With the Argentine in the box and Ranocchia on the road to recovery, on Sunday against Chievo Ranieri is planning to put him again in the middle of the defense next to Lucio. It’s his natural habitat, where Chivu knows that he can give more.
