Ex-Inter Defender Battistini: “Inter Have A Team That Allows Them To Aim For The Top”

Former Inter player Sergio Battisini has shared his thoughts and feelings on Inter’s recent poor run of form in the league.

Sunday afternoon’s 1-1 draw at home to Cagliari meant that Inter had drawn for the fourth time in their last six matches, a run of form which has worried some.

Battistini however is not all that worried by the form due to knowing how hard Serie A can be.

“Inter have drawn too many games, they could have caught up to Juventus. On the other hand, Serie A is never easy, teams like Cagliari and Lecce play openly,” he explained in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Sportiva last night.

Battistini, who spent four years with Inter between 1990 and 1994, then went on to discuss an area he believes to be a problem area for Inter and also comment on two of Inter’s new recruits.

“Inter need to strengthen the team, especially in midfield. Ashley Young has proven to be an excellent player and Christian Eriksen will make a contribution. I think the Nerazzurri have a team that allows them to aim for the top.”

The 56-year-old defender, who also played for AC Milan and Fiorentina during a 17-year playing career, concluded the interview by speaking on Lautaro Martinez’s sending off in the match against the Rossoblu.

The 22-year-old Argentine international was sent off right at the very end of the match as he protested excessively to being given a yellow card.

“There was nervousness in the final minutes of the match but the sending off cannot act as an alibi and did not affect the result. The sending off may however affect Inter in their next matches.”
