Italian Media Brand Inter’s Loan Of Genoa Striker Felipe Caicedo A “Flop” So Far

Striker Felipe Caicedo’s time on loan with Inter so far has been a “flop” according to Italian media.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who suggest that there has little to redeem the 33-year-old’s first few weeks since joining on loan from Genoa in January.

Caicedo had enjoyed a good relationship with coach Simone Inzaghi while at Lazio together, and the coach had reportedly pushed for the club to loan him in January despite the apprehension of the directors.

The thinking had been to sign the player until the end of the season to reinforce the attack with Joaquin Correa out injured and no guarantees about the fitness of the other three forwards.

However, Caicedo has barely played throughout the period since he was signed, having only had a few minutes off the bench against his parent club Genoa in which he made no impact.

Tuttosport notes that, unlike at Lazio where Inzaghi considered the Ecuadorian to be an important backup plan in attack and where he scored some vital late goals, at Inter he appears to be last in the pecking order.

Should Caicedo not find a role for himself in any of the Nerazzurri’s matches across the run-in of the season in Serie A and the Coppa Italia, he will risk becoming a rather pointless piece of business by the club.
