Ex-Udinese Striker Ricardo Muzzi: “Sassuolo Duo Scamacca & Frattesi Will Fit In Great At Inter”

Former Cagliari, Udinese, Lazio, and Torino striker Roberto Muzzi feels that Sassuolo striker Gianluca Scamacca and midfielder Davide Frattesi would be well-suited to Inter.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 50-year-old explained the two players’ qualities and compared them to current Nerazzurri pair Edin Dzeko and Nicolo Barella respectively.

Scamacca and Frattesi look to be two of Inter’s main targets for the summer transfer window, having already shown great promise this season with the Neroverdi in Serie A.

The question of how they will make the step up to life at Inter is a key to determining whether they would be successful moves in the end, but the club appear convinced that they have the right profiles.

Muzzi worked with both at youth level, and he believes that they can be at a similar level to players currently in the Nerazzurri’s squad.

“I worked with the whole group with the class of 1999 in the Roma youth teams for four years, including Scamacca,” he explained.

“Frattesi, however, I only coached for six months,” he added, “when he was joined, I immediately left the youth ranks to work with older players. But then after a few years I crossed paths with him at Empoli, where he was older and more fully-formed.”

He described the pair as both being “Full of life and dreams, like many others. But they both had the same desire to reach the top – you never know if a child will become a top player at ten years old, but I was pretty sure about them.”

“I hope for them they can take this step forward in their career,” he said of potential moves to the Nerazzurri, “personally, I consider them ready for a big club.”

“Scamacca has a lot of Dzeko to him, because like him he can play as a second striker, despite his great physical strength,” he continued.

“Frattesi runs like a madman just like Barella does,” he added. “Among other things, they can just keep growing under Inzaghi. The fact that Simone spent many years working with the youth sector helps him in coaching young guys.”

As for areas where the players would have room to improve, Muzzi suggested “Scamacca can get better in terms of his movement, but he is already complete, a modern striker.”

“Frattesi can score much more,” he added. “He is so hard-working that he sometimes goes too hard, he must remember that matches always last 95 minutes and learn how to pace himself.”

“I would like to see them both become key players for the Azzurri as well,” he added.
