Gianfranco Matteoli, playmaker in the great Inter team that won the Scudetto dei Record in 1988-1989 season, spoke about the current form of this Inter team.
Speaking to TMW Radio he said “The derby will be a very delicate game for both teams: when you lose a game like this, it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth & a heavy atmosphere. I don’t think Inter are playing the style of play Spalletti would like them to yet but against Milan they will need to show a greater will. Scudetto? it’s still too early to talk about that, but this is a tough team, with some good players who haven’t shown their true worth in recent years; but who are starting to relaunch themselves under Spalletti, but the style of play is still nowhere near good enough. Spalletti is adapting to the players he has at his disposal. At Roma he could play a different type of game & he had a certain Nainggolan who resolved all their problems. Spalletti now has to try & recover some players mentally so he can instil his ideas into them.”
