Five Things We Learned From Inter This Week: “Is This The Ever Best Version Of Ivan Perisic?”

Inter’s season looks well and truly back on track as they picked up back to back wins this week to aide their quest for silverware.

A solid win over Spezia was followed up in mid week via a win in a scintillating derby against Milan.

Inter now into the Coppa final and knowing a win over Bologna will take them top is worrying for all those around them.

Here’s what we learned from Inter this week.

1)  Mr. Reliable

Despite Denzel Dumfries getting into form after a slow start, Matteo Darmian has been his outstanding reliable self once again this week.

A top performance in the derby which was matched with an excellent assist for Lautaro’s first goal.

Despite arriving at Inter to little fan fare and a tiny price tag, the ex-Torino player has been outstanding business.

To be able to call upon a player who may have not started in weeks and then put in performances like Darmian does on the regular is testament to what an excellent character he is.

2) Lautauro Answering His Critics

An outstanding individual display from Martinez against Inter showed him at his brilliant best.

Sublime movement, great touches in the box and quality finishing to match showed what the Argentine was capable of.

Despite a number of blips and poor runs in front of goal, Lautaro proved once again the outstanding quality he has.

Rumours may still persist around his future but he certainly has the support of the Curva after his brilliant display in the helping Inter to a cup final.

3) Crucial Samir

Again a much maligned figure, Samir Handanovic was answering his critics in the derby.

Two absolutely vital saves with the score line at 1-0 allowed Inter to hold their advantage and press on for more goals.

A smart save from point blank range to deny Rafael Leao was matched excellently by a low dive to pluck out a volley from Alexis Saelemakers.

Big game Samir turned up once again to help his side. A captain’s performance and credit where it is due.

4) The Best Ever Version Of Perisic Yet

Number 14 Perisic > Number 44 Perisic.


Since coming back from Bayern in 2019, Inter have seen a giant transformation in Ivan Perisic.

From grumpy misunderstood winger to brave and aggressive wing back.

At 33, Perisic is absolutely laying out his critics and making it almost impossible for new signing Robin Gosens to get a sniff in the left wing back slot.

His bravery helped create the first two goals in the derby which was acknowledged by the fans signing his name.

Contract up in summer? Job for Beppe to get finished.

5) All Assault For A Domestic Treble

With a Supercoppa in the bag, a place in the cup final now booked and Inter hitting form at just the right time to take the driving seat in the title race, things are looking rosey.

The manager appears to be adapting and changing which is good and players such a Lautaro Martinez and Nicolo Barella are appearing to be back in form.

To win a Coppa for the first time in over a decade would be special and would no doubt leave the fans dreaming of holding all domestic trophies.

What an achievement it would be for the group if they could win on all fronts despite the losses of the summer and the fact they also have a fairly rookie manager.

Things are starting to look appetising. Inter are back on track.
