Inter’s Sporting Director, Piero Ausilio, spoke to Premium Sport for his usual pre-match analysis a few minutes before the kick-off against Lazio at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milano’s San Siro district.

Have you seen the right reaction from the team?

“I have seen a team that has worked well. Since July we have been doing well and we did it for a very long time, and even in the last few matches the performance was there, but you do not grow without these negative moments”.

Will you talk about De Vrij with Igli Tare?

“I saw him, I congratulated him and the relationship between us and Lazio is very cordial, but these are not the opportunities to talk about the market, and certainly we will not talk about the Dutch central defender.”

Can Deulofeu and Vidal be good ideas for January?

“We are evaluating various opportunities, from Barça and other clubs, we are looking around, but I repeat that we have a strong team that can improve its ranking today, but if we can find something we do not have, we will see if it will be feasible.”

How can Italian teams move on the market, given the large club expenses from the Premier League, like Liverpool spending 85 million Euros for Van Dijk?

“For us it is impossible to compete, but sometimes in Italy we are the best at finding talents. Skriniar is an example of this, we invested a substantial amount on him, and today we compare Skriniar to top players from around the globe. We have to anticipate the market, we do not lack imagination, in Italy we have identified certain players who have provided a great return on investment, such as Luis Alberto at Lazio .”

How high is the percentage of Joao Mario staying?

“Just as Spalletti said 100%. ​​As we said about Cancelo, none of the Inter players have asked to leave, we have never thought about letting them go, in due time there’s space for everyone.”

    Playing Mario on the wing could be a good idea if he does stay. He runs a lot and have some fine crosses too. But we really need a true attacking mid, and even a midfielder general like Ramires to play next to Vecino – Gagliardini is really not good enough yet.
    As for Cancelo he has proven himself to be a superb right full back who can only get better in the future. I already see him as a must sign next summer.
    for defense Bastoni would be enough I think seeing who well Ranno has been playing for us in the Coppa and now against Lazio. Plus we only have one game to play per week so no need to bring in more than young Bastoni.
    But we need wingers (hopefully mario can compete with Candreva if he stays) and a centrl midfielder next to Vecino plus Pastore, And then 3th/4th should be ours!

      Agree mate instead why we don’t try to play without pure winger??we did it when we got treble. In my opinion our squad isn’t inferior but we trully need playmaker and a SS who can’t make a room for Icardi. Icardi is one of the best Pivot Striker in the world. He isn’t only good as target man he can be a pivot that’s why last year he make so many assist.

      • casperv

        Good point – I’ve said for a while that the 3-4-3 system could be perfect for us. Ambrose as our right hand center back who could transform into a fullback if needed. Cancelo and Dalbert as wing backs and Perisic Icardi plus Candreva.
        But the club wants to play the 4-2-3-1

      • Il Principe di Persia

        We got treble with 4231, Pandev, Sneijder and Eto’o behind Milito.

        • fcinter1908

          Yup without pure wingers..we lack players who can open a space for icardi. E to’o has a pace and Sneijder give creativity and cannon ball, Pandev with dribbling. I’m totally Ok with Perisic but Candreva?he never trying to cut in through middle always outside and we just pray his deliver somehow accurate

          • Il Principe di Persia

            Candreva is the weak link of our squad, simply put.

    • nozanneti

      gaglia is a prototype of ideal center-half/back, but he doesn’t know that yet ;-))
      he is tall enough and has enough brains to be better than rano in that position …
      hey intert coaching stuff,
      how much do I have to wait until you see the obvious things ?!?!?!
      hehehe,…

      • casperv

        Nah he isn’t a good man-marker. He’s an okay tackler but does a lot of sliding high risk tackles which is okay in the middle of the pitch but not in the box.
        Cambassio was great as a defender too because he foresaw things – something Gagliardini isn’t good enough at

        • nozanneti

          maybe he can change some things regarding tackles, with good positioning in the box, he is tall … yes, I agree with most of your remarks about him, but player should be able to improve his skills and learn new things if he is really determined to do so. he should “surprise himself” ;-))

    Somebody just please do something with him. Enough with Pirlo and Coutinho, we need to explore more in our potential players instead of selling them

    Sometimes I’m wondering, how can exists such ridiculous rumours like Aleix Vidal in Inter? That’s total nonsense! January is very tough market and because of FFP we can’t afford to spend much! It will be tough job for Ausilio and Sabatini, but we desperately need attacking midfielder who can score, plus Ramires on loan, would be good reinforcement too. If we manage to sell Brozovic and or Joao Mario for good money will be helpful.
