Inter have paid tribute to their favourite ‘crocodile’ Marcelo Brozovic after he achieved an impressive record this season.

Brozovic was a key figure in the Nerazzurri’s midfield as they stormed to the Serie A title under Antonio Conte – and it seems new boss Simone Inzaghi will put his faith in the Croatian too.

The 28-year-old was revealed on Friday to have run more than any other player in Italy’s top flight during the 2020-21 campaign.

Inter tweeted: “Who said crocodiles were a slow animal?”
