Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin feels that Marcelo Brozovic has been the absolutely essential player to Inter’s Serie A title push.
Writing in his column in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Libero, the journalist highlighted the way that the Croat has brought the team back on track in their push for the Scudetto.
Inter had a major stumble in their league campaign in February and March, and a significant part of this drop-off happened in matches where Brozovic was absent.
The 29-year-old missed out on the 2-0 loss to Sassuolo through injury, whilst he was injured for matches against Torino and Fiorentina, which both ended in draws.
Now that Brozovic has been back in the team since the return from the international break, the Nerazzurri have not dropped a single point, and for Biasin this is no coincidence.
“It’s banal to say but also true, that beyond the chatter, Inter simply needed to get back their best player, Marcelo Brozovic, who took an injury setback in the Liverpool match and returned to full strength in the most important moment in the season,” he said.
“With him on the pitch, Inter improves in running, security, the ability to stay in the opposing half of the pitch, everything,” he goes on.
“And if before, he was only ‘good at making the team tick over,’ now he has also become a dispenser of assists and goals,” he highlights.
