Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin has expressed his surprise at the substitutions made by Simone Inzaghi during Inter’s Serie A clash with Sampdoria today.
The journalist tweeted that apart from the introduction of Danilo D’Ambrosio, he did not feel that any of the substitutions made sense or affected the game positively for the Nerazzurri.
Biasin was particularly critical of the decision to take off midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, who had been taken off against Hellas Verona as well in a move which saw the Nerazzurri wrestle three points out of the game but here only resulted in the loss of midfield control.
In the end a point away at the Marassi after an international break will not be seen as a disastrous result, but given that the team had managed to take the lead twice through moments of individual brilliance, the overall level of the performance can be questioned.
The Nerazzurri twice allowed Sampdoria back into the match, and in the second half they were unable to score a goal that would earn them all three points, which Biasin attributes to the substitutions.
His tweet reads: “When you come back from the break you need everyone: today, apart from D’Ambrosio, the changes were not good. In general, Inter a bit confused, Sampdoria excellent. PS: I, Brozovic, would never take him off.”
Quando arrivi dalla sosta hai bisogno di tutti: oggi, #Dambrosio a parte, decisamente male i cambi.
