By all appearances, forward Joaquin Correa has completely lost confidence at Inter.

This is the view in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who argue that the 28-year-old’s continued struggles on the pitch for the Nerazzurri come down to a mentality issue more than anything.

When Correa arrived at Inter from Lazio in the summer of 2021, the Argentine had already established a fairly strong reputation for himself in Serie A playing for the Biancocelesti.

In the Italian capital, Correa averaged ten goals per season, with thirty in total over three campaigns played under Simone Inzaghi.

When the former Sevilla and Sampdoria man followed the coach to the San Siro, he will have at least been expected to replicate his form from Lazio, but instead he has only regressed.

Nine goals over his first season and a half in a Nerazzurri shirt have been a testament to a tenure that has seen the positive performances far outnumbered by the disappointing displays.

In the view of the Gazzetta, it has become a mentality problem as much as anything at this point, as Correa has the look of a player who has no belief in himself or confidence in using his undoubted talent.
