Former Lazio goalkeeper Nando Orsi believes that even though Inter forward Joaquin Correa is not always consistent he can be the player who makes the difference in matches.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Radio, Orsi gave the view that Correa is a player who Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi trusts to have a decisive impact in matches.
Correa has had a mixed spell at Inter since joining from Lazio last summer, following Inzaghi following the former Biancocelesti boss’s appointment as coach, especially due to some long injury absences.
The 27-year-old has scored two match-winning braces in Serie A this season, but has also had some very ineffective performances both from the start and from the bench between them even when he’s been fit and available.
However, in recent displays Correa has made the team look more balanced than ever, and he also provided the assist for Lautaro Martinez’s second goal in the Nerazzurri’s 3-0 win over AC Milan in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday.
Orsi is not surprised by this, stating that “Inzaghi knows Correa very well, he doesn’t have a lot of consistency but throughout the season he has matches where he makes the difference.”
“The Inter coach has a lot of quality at his disposal,” he added, “none of the other contenders for the Scudetto have those attacking players, except for Juve, who are far away.”
