Arturo Vidal has started the Serie A season in blistering form for Inter, proving decisive off the bench in both of the Nerazzurri’s opening matches.
This is highlighted by Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who also note that Uruguayan midfielder Matias Vecino can make a significant contribution at the club this season.
After a summer in which he was expected to leave the club, Vidal has changed the game from the bench twice already this season, showing that he can be a valuable contributor under Simone Inzgahi and that he still has the correct attitude.
“Vidal’s metamorphosis is the most evident,” Tuttosport note, “exemplified by the goal and the assist (for Dzeko) against Genoa, and by the pass that opened the cross corridor to Darmian for Correa’s 2-1 goal against Verona.”
The Chilean, who was brought in from Barcelona last summer and missed much of the second half of the season through injury despite starting regularly initially, is an example of the quality still in Inter’s squad which can be utilized smartly by the manager to get through a long and challenging season.
Vecino is another example of this, with the 30-year-old having missed a substantial portion of last season through injury but ready for a new lease on life under Inzaghi.
Tuttosport write that “The Uruguayan’s newfound verve is very important for Inter in terms of attacking runs and goals.”
