Bastoni Alessandro

Alessandro Bastoni is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a defender for Serie A club Inter Milan. Bastoni was born in Casalmaggiore, Lombardy, and began his career in the local Rivarolo Mantovano youth side, where his father was coach. At the age of 7, he joined the youth side of Serie A club Atalanta. A left–footed defender, Bastoni started his career as a full-back, but is also capable of playing as a centre-back, a role in which he became increasingly deployed as his career progressed. He is mainly known for his passing ability and ball control, while his height and ability to exploit spaces allows him to be effective in the air, which makes him a goal threat from indirect set–pieces. Regarded as a promising young player in the media, in 2020, he was included in the list of “Fifty for the future:’s ones to watch.” Bastoni’s father, Nicola, was also a footballer, who played as a left–back for Cremonese
