Milan Škriniar joined Inter from Sampdoria in the summer of 2017 and has become a mainstay of the Nerazzurri‘s defence since then. The Slovakian defender has gone from strength to strength and established himself as one of the best centre-backs in Europe. This tactical analysis will profile Milan Škriniar and use statistics and game footage to highlight what he does best.


Škriniar is a 24-year-old defender from Slovakia. He started his professional career at MŠK Žilina before moving to Serie A in 2016. At that point, Škriniar joined Sampdoria after their renowned scouting system had identified him as a future defensive lynchpin. In his first full season, Škriniar became a regular at the heart of defence as Marco Giampaolo established his footballing philosophy at the club.

After a successful season, Inter targeted Škriniar as the man to build their defence around as they looked to build a team capable of challenging Juventus for the Scudetto. Škriniar had a great first season at the club and has continued impressing this season alongside either Stefan De Vrij or Miranda at the heart of Inter’s defence. Despite his age and relative inexperience, Škriniar has become one of Inter’s most important players.
