Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia believes that the Nerazzurri must be able to count on everyone in the squad if they are to have a successful season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, the 33-year-old stressed the importance of getting contributions out of everyone, and also stated that forward Joaquin Correa is fully back in the team after a minor fitness problem.
Inter have had to rely on members of the squad who are not regular starters in their last couple matches as they have rotated the squad to ensure that fatigue is kept to a minimum across a busy period in the fixture schedule.
Ranocchia himself made his first start against Udinese yesterday afternoon, putting in a solid shift to help the team to three points, while Correa was the hero with a second-half brace on his first start since returning from international duty.
The defender emphasized this aspect when he stated that “The team is not only the one made up of the first-choice eleven, but also of all those behind them who must be ready when they are called upon. With so many matches, to reach important goals you need everyone’s help and it is important to be ready .”
And of his teammate he stated that “Correa has been kept away by muscle problems since he arrived, but now he is fit and it shows. I’m happy when the guys are doing well.”
