Former Juventus midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini believes that Inter’s squad depth is a major asset to them in the Serie A season.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the Nerazzurri’s 2-0 win over Udinese this afternoon, the former midfielder explained that the strength throughout the entire squad is a major aspect of why the team are among the Scudetto favourites, while he also praised the durability of midfielder Nicolo Barella.

Inter have rotated their squad significantly in both of their last two matches as they’ve looked to mitigate the fatigue brought on by a packed period in the fixture schedule, but this has not stopped them from obtaining two wins and keeping two clean sheets.

Giaccherini believes that this makes for a demonstration of one of the key qualities that sets the Nerazzurri apart from much of the rest of the league.

“Udinese did well for the first sixty minutes in the defensive phase,” he said of the match, “then when they lost the compactness they allowed the play of Correa who split the game. Inter put pressure on the two teams in front of them with the performance and result.”

He went on that “In my opinion, Inter still remains the strongest team in the league. They can afford certain players, without forgetting the midfield which is very strong. They are strong in all positions, They are the team that won the Scudetto last year, it is normal that they are the team to beat.”

On Inter’s first goal he said that “Perisic was a bit forced to make that dummy, then Tucu did the rest. When there are spaces he is a devastating player. I see a different Vidal than last year, he is physically fit, he enters with twenty minutes and it makes the difference, he plays from the start and he is the same.”

“He is more a part of the team,” he went on of Vidal. “I see him almost in his Juve form, in terms of approach, quality, hunger.”

And on midfielder Nicolo Barella he said, “Barella surprises me more and more, even a fan who has never played never criticizes him because he always gives everything. He can play two games a day and he continues to run. He is also growing from a technical point of view.”
