The midfielders have been dropped for different reasons, as Brozovic was frozen out for unprofessional behaviour and Kondogbia irritated the Coach by failing to follow tactical advice.
Will Brozovic and Kondogbia return this weekend against Cagliari?
“I don’t know yet, but undoubtedly they are important players,” De Boer told the official Inter website.
“Marcelo has quality, he just needs to train in the right way and his return to the squad is not a problem. We must give our all in every game, including Cagliari.
“I have a great deal of confidence and that is part of my philosophy. We did great work during the break for international duty, they are all in good shape and now we will have the internationals back too.”
Can Inter still challenge for the Scudetto?
“For me the most important thing is to win every game and in March we’ll see where we are.”
Will De Boer be watching Napoli against Roma on Saturday afternoon?
“I am always happy to watch games in which there is a lot of quality.”
