Italian journalist Mario Sconcerti believes that Inter’s recent dip in form shows that the quality of the squad is not what many had thought it was.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, the journalist gave the view that the overall quality and depth of the Nerazzurri’s squad had been overestimated by most observers earlier in the season.

The quality in Inter’s starting eleven is not up for debate, while there are a few players on the fringes of the regular starting team who have also proven that they can contribute at a high level throughout the season.

However, during the Nerazzurri’s winning run in November and December, they were also seeing players like Roberto Gagliardini and Andrea Ranocchia turn in very good performances.

This led many to think that the entire squad could be a major asset to the Nerazzurri over the course of the season, and Sconcerti believes that the Nerazurri’s bad form over the past few weeks has exposed these players.

“Speaking of the current Inter, I would say that there was a moment  where their squad was overestimated,” he said, “when we were talking about the fact that it was exceptional.”

“This talk could have been valid a year ago, but today they’ve dried up a lot,” he continued, “it was enough if Brozovic was missing and they were forced to repurpose Vecino, the bottom of the depth chart.”

“Vidal and Ranocchia are backups that would not make a difference in any good Serie A team,” he added.

“The squad was not complete,” he said of coach Simone Inzaghi, “he inherited a team that’s supported his desire to maintain the same formation.”

“Two limitations that have added up and held the team back,” he continued. “Inter are imperfect, you can’t think that they can replace half the players from last season and not be left with limitations.”
