Inter’s Lautaro Martinez Is Nerazzurri’s Most Improved Player Under Antonio Conte, Italian Media Argue

Lautaro Martinez has made more improvements than any other Inter player during Antonio Conte’s time in charge, a report in the Italian media argued today.

Corriere della Sera’s print edition admitted that Romelu Lukaku was the Nerazzurri’s most important player, the one Conte insisted was signed following his appointment as head coach.

In terms of player development, however, Lautaro has made bigger strides than the Belgian under Conte after a difficult first season with Luciano Spalletti.

El Toro was ‘ill-disciplined’ and ‘ineffective’ during Spalletti’s second year in charge, the report claimed, having started only 13 games during his first campaign in Serie A.

Spalletti’s 4-2-3-1 system made life difficult for Lautaro as the former Racing Club striker was forced to play second fiddle to Mauro Icardi.

Lautaro’s development under Conte is about more than just that, though, as shown by the 15 goals he has scored in the league this season.

The 23-year-old has already beaten his previous best tally in Serie A (14), with eight games still to play.
