Here are some of the top stories for Monday, November 11, 2013:
- The international break is upon us and Walter Mazzarri has given his men two days off following the victory over Livorno. Training resumes on Tuesday for everyone not involved with their respective national teams.
- There are 12 Nerazzurri called up for international duty: Andrea Ranocchia (Italy); Saphir Taider and Ishak Belfodil (Algeria); Alvaro Pereira (Uruguay); Mateo Kovacic (Croatia); Fredy Guarin (Colombia); Yuto Nagatomo (Japan); Gaby Mudingayi (Belgium); Samir Handanovic (Slovenia); Rodrigo Palacio, Ricky Alvarez, and Hugo Campagnaro (Argentina).
- Speaking of Campagnaro, Inter have sent the Argentine Football Association (AFA) a detailed letter explaining why the defender should not be called up for his national team's upcoming friendlies against Ecuador and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Upper management and the AFA are in ongoing talks. According to rumors around Italy, it is likely that Campagnaro will not be traveling for the Albiceleste's tour of the United States. UPDATE - The AFA has decided that Campagnaro will not report for international duty due to injury.
- It seem that this needs repeating every couple of months, but Diego Milito does NOT have a twitter account. There have been some statements being attributed to a FAKE social media account saying that Il Principe will return to Racing at the end of the season, but it is an imposter who is posting these updates.
