Davide Santon (born 2 January 1991 in Portomaggiore, Ferrara) is an Italian footballer who plays for Serie A club Internazionale. He is an attacking full back who can play on both sides and is known for his energetic runs down the flank.
One of the most exciting products to come through the youth ranks at Inter in recent years, Santon has the world at his feet. He was drafted into the first team at the start of the 2008/09 season and quickly made a name for himself in the left-back role, earning a call-up to Italy's Confederations Cup squad. Ambidextrous and technically gifted, he likes to get forward from the full-back position.
Cristiano Ronaldo said, about Santon, "I was impressed by Santon; he is a really interesting lad and a great footballer." He has also become subject of praise from former Italy head coach Marcello Lippi, who described Santon as "A predestined that reminds of a young Paolo Maldini."
Santon made his international debut for the then World Champions only when he was 18! He's sure going to go places, really an exciting talent
