Simone Iacoponi rated as best Italian player on matchday six by the media

Simone Iacoponi was the best Italian player on matchday six in Serie A according to the top three sports newspapers in Italy.

The Parma defender produced an excellent display on his 80th appearance in the Italian top flight, as the Crociati and Inter played out a 2-2 draw at San Siro. His performance earned him an average score of 7.17, from the 7.5 received from La Gazzetta dello Sport and the 7 given by both the Corriere dello Sport-Stadio and Tuttosport.

Iacoponi was a hugely reliable figure in the Gialloblù defence, remaining vigilant when marking and covering. He also displayed character, leading Liverani’s backline through a difficult encounter against Inter.

His statistics from the match only serve to back this up: 92.6% pass accuracy, five duels won (compared to two lost) and twelve defensive blocks.
