Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic looks like the player who Inter’s Serie A title charge is dependent on more than any other this season.
This according to yesterday’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who argue that the 29-year-old is the key to the team’s success in the same way that Romelu Lukaku had been last season.
Brozovic went into this campaign as one of the main men for Inter in the centre of the pitch, as the most naturally suited to the regista role of the midfielders in the squad.
Even so, the Croat has shone even more than many expected, while his absence has been keenly felt when he’s been unable to play, with the Gazzetta noting that the Nerazzurri virtually look like a different team when he is on the pitch.
It remains to be seen whether the Nerazzurri will be able to secure the Scudetto over the final matches of the season, though they’ve just about been able to show the form to do so thus far in the season.
As the Gazzetta notes, this owes more to Brozovic’s influence on the team and the style of play more than perhaps any other player.
