Italian newspaper Tuttosport analyses the Nerazzurri environment, which is depressed after a sharp dip in from from mid-December that led the team from first place to fourth. The collapse in the performance of the team has unleashed all the fragility of a locker room that already a year ago, Under Stefano Pioli’s leadership collapsed once the Champions goal had vanished. This time the problems materialized after the double defeat against Udinese and Sassuolo. The players believed that the arrival Spalletti could erase all the problems as Antonio Conte did with Juventus, but once the difficulties came, the team was lost and Spalletti has not yet found a way to revive it.
The club’s directors are not happy with the coach Spalletti’s outbursts in press conferences. At the end of the season a decision will be made and only the qualification in the Champions can silence the many problems that have emerged from December to today. The balance inside the locker room seems to be missing as well, with the conflicting relations between the Croatians and Icardi, and the suffering of Candreva for the continuous substitutions (at Marassi the 18th of the season), without a Champions League spot there will be many individuals who will pay for the failure.
