Ex-Inter striker Giampaolo Pazzini has explained how he feels Joaquin Correa has found the cutting edge at Inter that he was missing during his time at Lazio, according to a report in the Italian media.
Speaking during an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Giampaolo Pazzini explained how with Joaquin Correa and Lautaro Martinez upfront, Inter have two players that perfectly compliment each others skill sets.
“Correa and Lautaro have characteristics that complete each other. Inzaghi sees Correa as a playmaker and Lautaro as the second striker. Together they can play well.”
Speaking specifically about Joaquin Correa, Giampaolo Pazzini explained that the only thing lacking from his performances in recent years at Lazio has been the killer instinct that all the best strikers have. At Inter though, he seemed to have it with his two goals against Hellas Verona to win the game.
“Correa has found what he was missing and that is the goal. He can go into double figures.”
Despite the worrying departure of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea, Giampaolo Pazzini believes that Inter’s attack still remains strong.
“The attack remains strong, even without Lukaku who is a central striker and therefore makes the team play in a precise way.”
Not only does the attack remain strong, but there are more ways of playing available to Simone Inzaghi now than there was before.
“Inter Milan has more variations now. The attacker who plays with the ball at their feet, or the one who chooses to drop deep and link the play.”
