In his weekly column in the Corriere della Sera on Monday, journalist Mario Sconcerti laid a lot of blame for Inter’s poor performance at the weekend at the feet of Mario Icardi and Luciano Spalletti.
Sconcerti wrote that “Inter played against the best Torino this season” and that Torino manager Sinisa Mihajlovic got the better of Spalletti as his tactics nullified Borja Valero and his play making abilities.
“Borja Valero’s catalyst qualities were nullified by Torino’s midfield three. He is not a trequartista; he simply finds the right pass to play during the action.”
Inter captain Mauro Icardi also came under attack from Sconcerti for his performance as he ended his column by writing:
“His poor performance yesterday was enough to render Inter useless.”
What do you think of Sconcerti’s comments? Were Icardi and Spalletti to blame for the Torino draw.
