Ex-Inter Forward Altobelli: “Icardi Is Not Inter’s Only Problem”

Former Inter striker Alessandro Altobelli has warned the Nerazzurri ex-captain Mauro Icardi is not their only problem.

Icardi was stripped of the club captaincy on Wednesday after failing to distance himself from comments made by wife and agent Wanda Nara, criticising his team-mates for not providing him with enough service up front.

Altobelli scored 209 goals in 466 matches for Inter during the late 1970s and 1980s and hopes Maurito can be reintegrated into the side soon.

“Mauro’s wife and agent made too many ill-advised comments in public and perhaps they affected some of the dressing room,” Altobelli told Tuttosport.

“However I wouldn’t want people to exaggerate and arrive at the conclusion Icardi is Inter’s only problem.

“Inter need to recover the player in order to prevent his value dropping too much ahead of a sale in the summer, but also for the good of the team as they need to defend third place in the league.

“It’s up to both Inter and Icardi to make the first step. The player needs to control his agent more but it’s a very difficult situation given she’s also his wife.

“Let’s not forget what Icardi has done and given to Inter. I hope this story has a twist at the end.”

Inter will play their first league match since taking the armband off Icardi when they play Sampdoria on Sunday.
