Crespo has also said that despite playing in a great league like Serie A, which have got many world class defenders and hot a reputation of playing defensively, he has only once failed to reach the double figure of goals, which was at 2013-14 which was his initial season with Inter. So, he insisted that, Mauro certainly knows how to score goals.
He also stated that, Icardi is a complete forward who can score goals with his head, left foot and right foot, which very few players can do. He does the movements in the box as he owns the field. He does darting runs, dummies, sudden changes of pace with ease. And he is also very good with finishing most of all. He has some incredible qualities and most of all he has got a powerful physique which helps him to push the threats away.
