Stefano Sensi has still got what it takes to be a key player for Inter this season, according to the Nerazzurri’s former defender Fabio Galante.
A report in this morning’s papers argued the midfielder would be almost like a new signing for Antonio Conte, after Sensi impressed while playing for Italy this week.
The 25-year-old started the Azzurri’s FIFA World Cup qualifier in Bulgaria last Sunday before scoring in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Lithuania.
Speaking to TuttoMercatoWeb last night, Galante said: “Scoring against Lithuania was very important for Sensi.
“He’s proven that when he’s not injured he can make the difference.
“He has a lot of quality, when the ball is at his feet he plays forward passes and is very useful for forwards.”
Galante was also asked for his thoughts on Inter’s hopes of securing the Serie A title, with the Nerazzurri six points clear of AC Milan (who have played a game more).
Conte’s side have 11 matches left and will resume their charge towards the Scudetto with a trip to Bologna tomorrow evening.
“Everyone is saying now that they’re favourites, although with COVID-19 lurking you can’t be relaxed,” Galante warned.
“It’s clear that the Nerazzurri have something extra over their rivals and it depends entirely on them.”
Danilo D’Ambrosio is the only Inter player still positive for COVID-19 after Samir Handanovic, Matias Vecino and Stefan de Vrij all returned negative tests this week.
