Legendary former Inter striker Alessandro Altobelli believes that current Nerazzurri striker is a top player, but that he needs to become more clinical in front of goal to perfect his game.

Speaking to Italian news outlet FCInter1908, the former striker gave positive words about his modern counterpart, though he singled out the 24-year-old’s finishing as a quality which could still use work.

Martinez has found the back of the net in both of his appearances for Inter this season, with goals against the likes of Hellas Verona and Sampdoria getting him off to a hot start.

It would be difficult to deny that Martinez has been prolific in front of goal, but he has not managed to hit the heights recently scaled by strikers like Ciro Immobile, Gonzalo Higuain, Cristiano Ronaldo, or his former teammate and striker partner Romelu Lukaku in Serie A.

Altobelli believes that the Argentine is a top player who makes a significant contribution and works hard for the team, but that there is room for improvement when concerning his finishing.

“He has always been an excellent player,” Altobelli said. “Maybe he scores a little less than he does other work forward, but he is valuable because he can play as the second striker, the first, but also the finisher.”

He went on, “He needs to work on being more clinical, but he is improving, and with Inzaghi he will be able to make this leap. He is a team player and has moved the team further with the contract renewal which is now imminent.”
