Inter directors Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio, as well as head coach Simone Inzaghi, have done well to get the best out of Edin Dzeko in the early parts of this season.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who argue that the trio each played a significant role in bringing the Bosnian in from Roma and seeing him lead the team’s attack successfully in the absence of Romelu Lukaku.
Lukaku’s sale to Chelsea in August shocked the Nerazzurri, but the club wasted no time in finding reinforcements in attack following the Belgian’s departure.
Marotta and Ausilio moved quickly in pursuing Dzeko, and they were able to complete the 35-year-old’s signing quickly and in so doing brought in a reliable striker who can take over from Lukaku in the short term.
Inzaghi, meanwhile, placed his trust in Dzeko following the disappointing loss of last season’s top scorer and assister, and he has been rewarded for his faith with an excellent start to life at Inter and a reliable source of goals in the form of the former Giallorossi man.
