Inter Coach Conte Hardly Rotates Squad With Only One Change After Win Over Napoli, Italian Media Note
Inter coach Antonio Conte has decided not to heavily rotate the squad for today’s Serie A clash against Spezia, only making one change to the squad that beat Napoli earlier this week, according to a report from today’s paper edition of Rome based newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The report details how the only change in today’s squad compared to the one that earnt three points against the Partenopei is the removal of Italian wing back Matteo Darmian, which Moroccan talent Achraf Hakimi coming in.
Despite the recovery of Arturo Vidal, the growth of Stefano Sensi and the desperation for minutes from Christian Eriksen, Conte decided to keep the same midfield as the Napoli game, with Nicolo Barella starting alongside Roberto Gagliardini and Marcelo Brozovic in the middle.
This is similar to the end of last season, where the 51-year-old Italian coach began to trust a consistent starting 11 and rarely made large rotations.
