Highly rated Nigerian teen midfielder Theophilus Awua was among the top performers for Inter-Milan Primavera in their narrow win over Palermo, in their opening game.
The Football Academy Abuja (FAA) graduate got a high rating of 7 over 10. Only Pinamonti who scored the goal got a higher rating than the hardworking teen.
Mondo Primavera, the site that did the ratings went further to suggest that he has all of the characteristics to be a top player in the future based on his performance.
On loan from Serie B side Spezia, with Inter-Milan having the option of making the deal permanent in the summer, his fine start to life at the club will no doubt enhance his prospect of earning a permanent deal.
Rated by ex England international John Fashanu as one of the best teen midfielders in Nigeria. He will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Nigerians who have played for the Serie A side.
Awua will in the coming season try to walk the path of Kanu Nwankwo, Taribo West, Obafemi Martins, Joel Obi and Obiora Nwankwo who have all played for the San Siro oufit.
