Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin feels that while Joaquin Correa was poor against Parma in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday, it is also the case that Denzel Dumfries looked like a shadow of the player he is capable of being.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Telelombardia, via FCInter1908, Biasin gave his thoughts on the Nerazzurri’s performance, singling the pair out for criticism.
Correa was given a relatively rare opportunity to start for Inter in the team’s Coppa Italia round of sixteen tie against Parma.
The Argentine struggled to have an effect on the game, and his display received criticism from many fans and journalist.
For Biasin, there is little question that Correa was well below par in the match against Parma.
However, as far as the journalist is concerned, Dumfries deserves a lot of criticism as well, especially given that the Dutchman has the ability to be a top player in his position and is meant to be a regular starter for the Nerazzurri.
“After the World Cup, Dumfries is at 40% of his capabilities,” Biasin said after the match, “Gagliardini is in his sixth year at Inter and doesn’t look to be capable of being a midfielder for a top team.”
“With Correa, it’s no longer just bad form, he cost a pretty big fee but he isn’t working out.”
Biasin argued that “I know Gagliardini can’t give any more, he’s not at the Inter level as far as I’m concerned, but I’m a big fan of Dumfries, and it’s frustrating to see him so far below his potential.”
Of Correa, he said that “He’ll never be Kun Aguero, but he’s getting to be just dreadful.”
