Inter Midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu: “We Have To Remain Calm, I Can Play In Hole Behind Two Strikers”

Inter midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu urged calmness and focus after the Nerazzurri dropped further points during Friday’s goalless draw against Genoa in Serie A.

Unable to break down the relegation-battling Grifone, Inter have failed to win in four league games and have only netted once in their past four matches in all competitions, causing concern amongst supporters.

In an interview with Italian television broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the final whistle at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, and as reported by, the Turkey international admitted it was the most challenging moment of the club’s season.

“Yes, it’s a bit strange at the moment. We knew that we would have faced difficult matches like Milan, Napoli and Liverpool,” Calhanoglu said of Inter’s recent struggles.

“We then lost against Sassuolo, and today we played well, creating a lot but we missed the goal. We knew that Genoa played more aggressive with the new coach. We were prepared but something was missing.

“I don’t know if we’ve lost our cynicism, it’s hard to explain. Maybe we will get out of it but we have to rest assured, we still have a game to play and others haven’t won. We have to stay calm and be with the right mentality.”

Calhanoglu has played a deeper role in midfield but admitted that he was suitable playing behind a two-man attack, with Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez leading the line.

“I can fit in behind Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez in a 3-4-1-2, but sometimes I also have to help Marcelo Brozovic and Nicolo Barella. In games like today, we can certainly go further,” he concluded.

Calhanoglu joined Inter from city rivals AC Milan on a free transfer last summer and has scored six goals in 31 appearances across all competitions.
