Legendary former Inter captain Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Bergomi has shared his thoughts and feelings on Inter’s performance in yesterday’s 2-1 loss to Bologna at San Siro.
“I liked Inter, they played well the first half but you have to see the game out,” Bergomi explained whilst present in the studios of Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, earlier on today.
Next Bergomi discussed Romelu Lukaku’s decision to hand out of form Lautaro Martinez the penalty in a bid to get him back on the score sheet and his confidence up.
“The penalty taker is Lukaku and he once left a penalty to Esposito with a good result. The gesture is beautiful, he wanted to help Lautaro. I don’t think the rumours influence him, but Lukaku has to take that penalty. I didn’t mind how Lautaro played, he had chances and played for the team.”
Bergomi then went on to analyse the performance of attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen, someone who he has been very critical of since his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur back in the most recent January transfer window.
“He played discreetly in the first half. The opposing teams are very attentive to him, they don’t give him space. You always expect more from him, but he’s not doing well.”
World Cup winner Bergomi spent the entirety of his playing career with Inter. Between 1979 and 1999 he made no less than 754 appearances across all competitions to date, an appearance total bettered only by fellow club legend Javier Zanetti. Bergomi scored 29 goals for Inter and also won two Serie A titles among other honours whilst with the club.
