Former Juventus, Napoli, and Udinese midfielder Massimo Mauro feels that Inter’s recent struggles have come down to bad luck rather than a real crisis in their form.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 59-year-old argued that the Nerazzurri have mostly been unfortunate in recent damaging results.
Inter have endured a very frustrating February, capped off by unexpected dropped points at home to Sassuolo, losing 2-0, and then away to Genoa in a goalless draw.
The attack in particular has not been enough to get much out of these fixtures, as the Nerazzurri have now gone 313 minutes without scoring in all competitions.
However, against both the Neroverdi and the Griffone, Inter had most of the possession and shots despite nothing going in due to a combination of bad finishing and good goalkeeping.
“Inter have been unlucky, they don’t seem like a team in crisis,” Mauro said, “they created six or seven chances, conceded two shots to Genoa. Of course, the attack was misfiring.”
