Inter striker Lautaro Martinez has been out of form in front of goal and has not found the back of the net, but coach Simone Inzaghi is ready to work with him to get him back in goal-scoring form.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who highlight how the Nerazzurri coach could look to have the Argentine rediscover his confidence and start finding the back of the net regularly again.
The last time Martinez scored for the Nerazzurri was against Sassuolo in the match just before the October international break.
His missed penalty and fluffing of a couple gilt-edged chances against AC Milan in the derby were a stark illustration of his problems in front of goal since the return from the October break, a period which has also seen him fail to score against the likes of Lazio and Juventus and in the Champions League against Sheriff among others.
The 24-year-old will not make a last-minute return from the international break this time around as he had from the last two breaks, with Argentina’s last World Cup qualifier scheduled for the November 16.
With the striker set to return with time to rest up and to join the squad and train with Inzaghi, the coach will look to have him in the right state after he seemed to get off to a bad start last time around when he had to fly straight to Rome without any preparation time.
Inzaghi will look to keep building his team as an attacking force, with the likes of Denzel Dumfries and Hakan Calhanoglu also still growing into the team, and he will build the side around getting Martinez back firing in front of goal.
