Nerazzurri Legend Beppe Bergomi: “Wouldn’t Believed Inter Potentially 3 Points From Top Of Serie A At This Stage Before Season Began”

Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi believes that the fact that the Nerazzurri are where they are at this stage of the season is a feat in itself.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, he gave the view that even if the Nerazzurri do not win the Scudetto race, they have still exceeded expectations already to be in the hunt in the closing stages of the campaign.

Inter have some ground to make up at the top of the Serie A table, six points back from city rivals AC Milan and three from Napoli, albeit with a game in hand on each.

It remains to be seen whether the Nerazzurri will be able to go all the way and defend their Scudetto crown, but as Bergomi points out, not that many observers had them as being favourites before the season began.

The club had a summer of upheaval and transition in the transfer market and moved on from former coach Antonio Conte to Simone Inzaghi, yet they have managed to compete at the very top of Serie A all season long.

“It doesn’t have to be an excuse, but if you had told me in August that Inter would potentially be three points of top spot with eight matches to go, I would not have believed it,” Bergomi mused.

He went on that “Between November and December Inzaghi built a perfect team, performing at an incredible level, then they had a tremendously difficult schedule in the second half and now the players are paying physically, and also mentally.”

“Inzaghi hasn’t changed his system without Brozovic,” he continued, “that’s the only thing I can accuse him of, because a player like that doesn’t have a replacement.”

Bergomi also spoke about the transfer market for Inter, stating that “Dybala could arrive in Milan, but in a 3-5-2 system there’s a need for a fast attacker who can run in behind.”

“Dybala is someone who, like those players already in the squad, doesn’t attack space in behind much,” he continued.

“Unless he arrives with the Scamacca as well, I see him struggling,” he predicted.

And on whether he considers Lautaro Martinez to be not for sale, Bergomi said that “If an offer arrives they’ll sit down and evaluate it. For any player.”
