Italian Journalist Sebastiano Vernazza: “Inter Can’t Give Up On Lautaro Martinez”

Italian journalist Sebastiano Vernazza believes that Inter must persevere with Lautaro Martinez despite the striker’s recent dip in goalscoring form.

Writing in his column in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the journalist explained the view that Martinez should get back to form if the club continue to put their trust in him.

After having began the season in good form and establishing himself as the Nerazzurri’s top scorer, Martinez has had a start to the year to forget, getting on the scoresheet only once, from the penalty spot.

However, the 24-year-old showed flashes in his most recent appearance, coming off the bench against Genoa and showing his quality as the Nerazzurri went in search of a late goal.

Vernazza feels that the club have to keep waiting for positive signs from the Argentine, writing that “In Genoa he sat on the bench. Inzaghi put him on in the 28th minute of the second half and in those scarce twenty minutes, including injury time, Lautaro Martinez showed his quality several times.”

“He forced Sirigu to make a save, made himself dangerous with a turn, and towards the end he might have scored if he hadn’t run into the Ostigard’s wall,” he goes on.

“At Marassi it was clear that Inter cannot give up on Lautaro,” he continues, “despite the Argentine being plagued by drought.”

Vernazza goes on to note that “Martinez has not scored in the league since December 17, against Salernitana, his last goal. Then he found the back of the net from a penalty against Juve and nothing since.”

Of the Coppa Italia semi-final clash with AC Milan, he writes that “Tuesday’s derby will be a moment of truth.”
