Inter Manager Conte Reaches Out To National Teams Ahead Of International Break

Inter manager Antonio Conte has already been in touch with some national teams to discuss the usage of some of his players in the upcoming international break according to a report in today’s Corriere dello Sport.

Due to a series of injuries, several of Inter’s players have played six full games in a row and there are certainly signs of fatigue there.

Most of the players Conte has relied on are also full internationals and rather than getting some well deserved and much needed rest, these players will have to play yet more games over the international break meaning they are unlikely to return in better shape than they left.

Conte has been in touch with both Argentina and Belgium in particular to discuss the usage of Lautaro Martinez and Romelu Lukaku.

The duo are among the set of players to have played all six games since the last break and with Matteo Politano’s injury, Conte is left with just one alternative in the attack in the shape of 17-year-old Sebastiano Esposito. Therefore, the duo are likely to be playing every game between now and the winter break commencing in December.

Conte has spoken with both of the national teams and has made it clear that he hopes his players are not forced to play both games.

Lukaku’s Belgium are already qualified for EURO 2020 and Belgium did allow him to return early during the previous international break. Lautaro Martinez’s Argentina meanwhile just have two friendly matches to play.
