The lack of defined hierarchies has hindered both Mauro Icardi and Lautaro Martinez this season, according to Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

According to the report, “a year ago, Mauro Icardi was the Serie A top goal scorer with 29 goals, but after an conflict with the club, he was stripped of the captaincy, and has since totaled 11 goals, with one game left this season. Scoring in eight games, having gone missing for twenty.”

“During the first half of the season, he scored, 9, that’s one goal every 145 minutes. But this year, he’s scored 2, that’s one goal every 444 minutes. Icardi seems to have lost his hunger, even if he still has not had many chances.”

“El Toro Martinez has also been poor. The number 10 has scored six goals, three in each half of the season. The difference is, that in the first 19 games, he played 443 minutes, whereas in this half of the season he’s played 874 minutes.”

“Furthermore, Lautaro has only scored one goal away from home and that was a penalty against AC Milan in a Rossoneri filled San Siro.”

“Lautaro was expected to be starting ahead of Mauro Icardi even after he returned from his hiatus, but El Toro was injured while away on international duty and ever since, Spalletti has roated between the two, hoping for one of them to come with the goals, but in reality, both have been a disappointment.”
