Lautaro Martinez took his Inter career to the next level with his performance in Sunday’s Milan derby, according to an Italian media report today.
El Toro produced a man-of-the-match performance against AC Milan, scoring twice in an emphatic 3-0 win for the Nerazzurri.
As per FCInter1908.it, Lautaro has learned how to score ‘easy’ goals now, something he previously struggled with, and has become a more complete player.
Many tough tests lie ahead for the 23-year-old if he is to confirm his improvements, but it seems Lautaro is finally coming good on his pact with Antonio Conte to become one of Europe’s strongest forwards.
Lautaro recently became a father for the first time and this, along with his fantastic relationship with Romelu Lukaku and Conte, were all mooted as possible factors behind him becoming more aware of his abilities and more decisive.
It is clear that he cares a lot about succeeding at Inter and the work he has done with Conte in recent months is now bearing fruit out on the pitch.
Lautaro has made 33 appearances this season in which he has scored 15 goals and provided seven assists.
The former Racing Club star knows that there is still a mission to complete, or rather winning the Serie A title, if he wishes to become a total icon at Inter.
As the report noted though, there are precious few past Nerazzurri players who can claim to have produced such a devastating performance against AC Milan in a derby.
Racing Club scout Fabio Radaelli told Tuttosport today that Lautaro was very happy at Inter, having spoken to the player recently.
