Former Inter midfielder Borja Valero believes that part of the reason for the Nerazzurri’s current slump in form has been fatigue amongst the players.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the Nerazzurri’s goalless draw with Genoa yesterday, he suggested that Edin Dzeko’s admission of tiredness within the squad was a very revealing point about where Inter are at right now.

Inter have had their worst month of the season in February, winning just once across all competitions while losing three times and drawing twice after yesterday’s stalemate at the Marassi.

The team have not looked at their best stylistically and the players have not quite looked as though they could execute the style of play with the kind of tempo and incision that they were doing when they were in their best form.

Valero feels that this isn’t necessarily surprising, and could easily be attributed to tiredness.

“Dzeko’s words before the game reflect the moment that Inter are in,” he said. “He said that there’s fatigue and it showed.”

“It’s strange to see Inter in this form,” he added, “goals drying up and not able to worry the opposition goalkeeper. Against Genoa it’s not as though they weren’t getting forward, they were frequently close to the penalty area but weren’t creating danger.”

And of Lautaro Martinez’s appearance, he said that “He looked good to me, he had an impact in the game. He made himself available for the team and tried hard to score, but he couldn’t do so even today.”
