Hakan Calhanoglu Looked Convincing In Midfield In Inter’s Serie A Win Over Spezia, Italian Media Argue

Inter midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu continued to show how well-suited he is to his role in the centre of the pitch with his display in yesterday evening’s 3-1 Serie A win over Spezia.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who highlighted another convincing display by the Turk and awarded him a grade of 6.5/10 in their player ratings for the match.

Calhanoglu played higher up the pitch earlier in his career, whilst at Milan the 28-year-old tended to be utilized anywhere from a Number Ten position to on the wing, and very rarely in an out-and-out central midfield role.

Since joining the Nerazzurri last summer, the former Rossoneri and Bayer Leverkusen man has been seen as a Mezzala by coach Simone Inzaghi, tasked with plenty of running and defensive responsibilities in addition to passing and creativity.

The Turkish midfield settled into his new role and surroundings relatively quickly, and has looked an indispensable part of a midfield where he replaced Christian Eriksen from last season’s Scudetto-winning team.

Calhanoglu once again showed what he can do to impose himself on games centrally with an assured display against Spezia, whilst he also had many positive moments in the final third.

In the early going, the midfielder seemed to remind his teammates of the need to shoot on goal in order to score, and even though none of his long-range efforts found the target they gave Spezia something to think about and set the tone.
