Ionut Radu, here we go again. From Inter to Cremonese mistakes are repeated. Some ghosts come back and hurt even more. This time, Fiorentina celebrates and in the end wins 3-2 precisely for an own goal from the former Inter goalkeeper. 109 days ago – it was April 27 – his disastrously smooth run at Bologna-Inter, on a pass from Perisic from a lineout, enabled Sansone – in minute 81 – to support the last 2-1 goal at the net, what a very heavy psychological blow to the team of Simone Inzaghi, who with that success would have overtaken Milan by one point and, four days after the end, would have taken a huge step forward towards the 20th Scudetto, that of the second star.
Instead, everyone, absolutely everyone, knows the epilogue of that tricolor race, with Rossoneri’s win – +2 over the Nerazzurri – on May 22 in Reggio Emilia with a 3-0 win over Sassuolo. A mistake that cost Radu his place at Inter.
With a great desire to return as the protagonist, the Romanian goalkeeper went to Cremonese, who after 26 years again promoted to Serie A. And here on the debut, at home of Fiorentina, at 2-2 (with a goal for the grigiorossi from captain Bianchetti, who had surgery on the spine in the past as he himself said in an interview with Corriere della Sera), Radu combined it really big.
Cross in the Mandragora area, uncertainty of the former Nerazzurri who fails to hold the ball and lands in the net. Fiorentina celebrate to 3-2 and Cremonese to pieces in the final, as happened with another newly promoted, Lecce (Dumfries goal in the 95′ and Inter a success for 2-1), Saturday 13 August.
