Former Inter coach Alberto Zaccheroni has expressed how highly he rates Inter midfielder Stefano Sensi but has reservations over his fitness, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking during an interview with Sky Sport, via FCInternews, Alberto Zaccheroni explained that the historic problem with Stefano Sensi is that he has never been able to avoid injuries for a long enough amount of time to cement himself in the Inter squad.
“The problem is the history of Sensi linked to his physical condition because the quality of the player is not in dispute.
“He is a player who knows how to play in his own half on the pitch but knows how to be dangerous in the opposing half of the field, good in assists, in giving balance to the team, in the final phase. He arrived at Inter not by chance, but because he is really good.”
He is currently very close to joining Sampdoria on a loan deal from Inter until the end of the season but that could now change after he scored the winning goal against Empoli in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night.
“The problem is the availability of the player who for one reason or another always has some ailment that I don’t know where it comes from because it is an anomaly.”
Alberto Zaccheroni feels that Stefano Sensi could be useful to Inter over the rest of the season because there are many games to play and there will likely be more injuries for other players as the season wears on.
“At Inter if he is well he can be useful because the season is long , the matches are many, there are other cases of injuries and to have a player who knows how to play in more areas of midfield and above all with quality it is convenient, but a medical evaluation must be made.”
