Former Inter defender Daniele Adani feels that at the moment Inter do not look like a team playing with a full tank physically.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Rai Radio after the Nerazzurri’s 3-1 loss at the hands of Udinese, the former defender spoke about the fitness issues of the team, whilst also suggesting that they have been two quick to think that things have gotten back on track after wins over Torino and Viktoria Plzen.
Inter got a brutal reality check on their trip to Udine, as Udinese extended the longest winning run in Serie A even after the Nerazzurri had gone ahead early.
It was the home side who looked the fresher and more aggressive throughout, as Inter never really looked like coping with the Friulians’ pressure and were second to every ball seemingly, eventually being punished for their performance, which seemed to at least partially be down to fitness issues.
Of Inter’s defense, Adani said that “It’s not just the three of them, now there are also Federico Dimarco and Francesco Acerbi, as well as Danilo D’Ambrosio. ”
“But it’s obvious that Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni are the starters and they’re struggling,” he continued, “but Inter are struggling because they’re lacking creativity and inspiration all over the pitch, and also struggling for fitness.”
“Sometimes they gives too much weight to it when they do well, for example for me the victory in the Champions League against Viktoria Plzen was a victory with a modest performance,” he continued.
“You have to give the right weight to things because if you don’t learn from them you can’t improve,” he added. “In my opinion they deserved to lose to Udinese.”
