Italian journalist Fabio Ravezzani believes that Inter are suffering from tiredness due to not having rotated their squad enough earlier in the season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster TeleLombardia, the journalist gave the view that, particularly in midfield, the most crucial players in the Nerazzurri’s team have dropped off in form due to overuse earlier on during the campaign.
The likes of Hakan Calhanoglu and Nicolo Barella started in midfield in the Nerazzurri’s 1-1 draw against Torino yesterday evening, though they were not quite at their best against an organized and physical Granata side.
Meanwhile, Marcelo Brozovic was absent from the match due to a muscle injury which he had suffered during Inter’s Champions League clash with Liverpool during the week, to which fatigue could well have been the key contributor.
The team seems to lack a sense of chemistry and continuity between all the members of the squad, and Ravezzani believes that Inzaghi’s failure to rest key starters and integrate squad players better is at fault.
“Inter are tired due to Inzaghi’s insecurity,,” he said. “The playing time of the three starting midfielders has been enormous. Then, when the backups come in, they’re completely disoriented.”
“The coach had to do a bit more rotation in the moment of great form earlier on in the season,” he suggested. “But he was too scared of losing points.”
