Italian Media Highlight Hakan Calhanoglu’s Inconsistent Start To Life At Inter

Summer signing Hakan Calhanoglu has had an inconsistent start to life at Inter, showing both his best qualities as well as his tendency to drift out of games.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight the differences in the performances of the Turkish midfielder against Genoa and Hellas Verona ahead of his likely start against Sampdoria.

Against Genoa, the 27-year-old was one of the Nerazzurri’s key players in his competitive debut, scoring and assisting a goal as he put in an overall eye-catching display to help his team to an emphatic 4-0 win.

Against Verona, on the other hand, Calhanoglu struggled to affect the game and gave the ball away too many times before being substituted, not able to show the quality he had done against Genoa.

The Corriere point out that this was very much also the case for the Turk at AC Milan, where he impressed strongly at times, leading to strong team performances, while also having spells of indifferent form.

Tomorrow’s Serie A clash with Sampdoria will present another early test of which side of the midfielder Inter will see, with supporters and coach Simone Inzaghi hoping that he will perform as he did against Sampdoria’s city rivals on the opening day rather than a reprise of his display against Verona.
