The progression Walter Mazzarri was able to achieve at Napoli is simply not occurring at Inter, Gazzetta dello Sport looks at the reasons why. Firstly in the wing positions Maggio and Zuniga were able to offer solution in both attack and defence. This is something Jonathan and Yuto Nagatomo have been unable to achieve during Mazzarri’s tenure at Inter. The midfield and attack do not function in a similar fashion to that which Mazzarri constructed in Naples. There is no Cavani to come back into midfield and create space and incisive runs. The closest player to him is Osvaldo and he has found no continuity due to injuries. Hamsik turned a 3-5-2 into a 3-4-3 with his intelligent movement but in midfield Mazzarri only has players who dribble. This is ironic because as the paper states what Inter need in attack is Lavezzi: A player who is fast and can dribble. Currently Inter have a true centre forward in Mauro Icardi and Rodrigo Palacio who is breaking down physically. Mazzarri works with honesty but with Thohir showing no signs of spending big it’s difficult for the coach.
