Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga feels that right now Inter are lacking a player who can create a moment of magic like Paulo Dybala.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the Nerazzurri’s 2-1 Serie A loss to Roma, Zenga argued that the team had hardly looked brilliant on the pitch and that the absence of a player who can unlock the match was felt.
Inter certainly had plenty of possession in their match against the Giallorossi, and they did spend a lot of the match probing for opportunities.
However, apart from the moment from which Federico Dimarco was found through on goal by Nicolo Barella and scored the match’s opening goal, few clear-cut openings appeared for the Nerazzurri.
In some sense this was in contrast to the Giallorossi, who when they did forward looked dangerous, with players like Dybala as well as Nicolo Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini looking more than capable of creating something when the chances came to them.
“A coach has a right to express his position and what he saw at the end of a match,” Zenga said of Simone Inzaghi’s assessment that it had been a good Inter performance.
“Of from his view Inter played a great game, it’s fair for him to say so.”
“I saw an Inter that didn’t look great though,” Zenga said on the other hand, “they struggled against a Roma who played compactly.”
“Players like Dybala are missing, the kinds who create moments of superiority, inspiration,” he added.
Zeng also noted that “The problem is never just one thing, there’s always a set of problems.”
