Representative of the national football representation, Milan Škriniar, has received another honour. A 22-year-old centre-back playing for Inter Milan, Škriniar was listed among the best players the top leagues have to offer in the 2017/2018 season by the prestigious Goal.com website.

“Signed during the summer transfer window, the centre-back has carried on his impressive Sampdoria displays to cement himself as a star on the ambitious Nerazzurri side,” Goal.com wrote about Škriniar.

“A strong tackler who is quick to make clearances”, he is central to their hopes of challenging for the Serie A title this term, arguably just as much as star striker Mauro Icardi, the website added.

Apart from Škriniar, David de Gea, Dani Alves, Gerard Piqué, Kevin De Bruyne, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappé also made the list.
