Italian journalist Paolo Condo believes that Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has done an impressive job of bringing the Nerazzurri back to the level that they find themselves at despite a difficult summer.

Writing in a column for Rome-based newspaper la Repubblica, Condo praised Marotta and gave the view that the executive’s work has been visible in the strong opening performances which have seen the Nerazzurri take home six points from six at the beginning of the campaign.

Inter faced a tough summer transfer window filled with upheaval in the squad, namely in the form of Antonio Conte’s departures and the sales of Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku to Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea respectively.

However, and with the caveat that it is only early on in the season, the Nerazzurri already look to have rebounded well from these setbacks on the pitch, and are playing at a high level with new signings under new coach Simone Inzaghi.

“Inter have won the most difficult battle,” he wrote, “that of reviving the embers of their fire after the icy buckets of the farewells of Conte, Hakimi and Lukaku (and Eriksen) – the undeniable nature of the victories against Genoa and Verona and the fires immediately lit by newcomers like Calhanoglu and Correa reactivated a connection that seemed lost.”

“For many reasons, there is no doubt that the man of the month was Beppe Marotta,” concludes Condo.
