Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi feels that the Nerazzurri have not shown patience in trying to break opponents down and find the goal in their recent matches.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after Inter’s 0-0 draw away to Genoa in Serie A, Bergomi gave the view that the Nerazzurri have not looked like the well-oiled machine that they did at earlier points in the campaign.
Inter enjoyed nearly three quarters of possession against Genoa and spent the lion’s share of the match trying to pull the Griffone out of shape and fashion good opportunities to score.
However, despite being clearly the team with the greater technical quality in their ranks, the Nerazzurri never really looked in control as they moved the ball around in front of an organized defensive unit and lacked the right tempo and precision to break it down when they did go forward.
Bergomi feels that this represents a worrying trend, stating that “Inter look very impatient to me, they look stretched after making technical errors.”
“Last year Inter also had to win in difficult situations,” he added, “I remember against Cagliari they won with a goal from Darmian.”
He concluded that “Inter aren’t looking at their brilliant best, it’s hard for them to find forward solutions. The wing-backs waste so much energy.”
