Former Inter defender Marco Andreolli believes that now that Marcelo Brozovic seems to be scoring goals more regularly, he can become a virtually complete midfielder.
Speaking to InterTV after the Nerazzurri’s Serie A win over Torino, Andreolli praised the Croat for getting into scoring positions more, and suggested that this could be the one thing that’s been lacking from his game to make him virtually flawless.
Brozovic has been one of the Nerazzurri’s most vital players in his position at the base of midfield since he was transitioned to that role by Luciano Spalletti, but the 29-year-old has not been noted for scoring many goals over the period.
The occasional long-range effort or opportunistic run into the box have allowed the Croat to score here and there, but not prolifically.
However, Brozovic’s goals against the likes of AC Milan and Torino have come from being more proactive about getting on the end of chances, and the Croat has more than proved that when he finds himself in those position, he has the finishing ability to make something of the chances.
“Brozovic has grown,” Andreolli said, “he’s getting the best out of his qualities, now even in front of goals. If you add finishing off the final action of moves, he becomes virtually the perfect midfielder.”
