SPAL manager Pasquale Marino has remained tight lipped when quizzed on why he has not used on loan Inter striker Sebastiano Esposito all that much as of late.
Highly rated Italian under 21 national team representative Esposito was loaned to the Serie B outfit for the duration of the 2020/21 season in order to give him a chance at more game time than he would have got had he stayed with Inter for the season.
The 18-year-old has made 13 appearances across all competitions for SPAL since his arrival in Ferrara and he has been an unused substitute in each of their last three matches.
“I prefer not to talk about individuals. Just like Esposito, there are many who don’t play. It is normal that there are players who are used more and others less. I think of Murgia for example,” Marino explained in his press conference today ahead of SPAL’s match with Brescia, which took place this afternoon.
“SPAL is what interests me. I cannot look at individuals. I have to look at who does best and make the least possible mistakes.
He went on to add: “I don’t look at their pay check and date of birth when I do the training, but only the guys and the answers they give me in training. I have to worry about everyone. At the moment I can’t say anything about anyone.”
A recent report from FCInterNews.it has suggested that Inter could cut Esposito’s loan short if the situation does not change and could then send him out on loan elsewhere in Serie B, where there are a few clubs interested.
