An Italian report argues that Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi should rotate his frontline as his strikers seemed to be exhausted against Sassuolo.
Last night, the coach opted to start once again with Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram.
However, neither man was able to score. It was Denzel Dumfries who delivered the solitary strike for the Nerazzurri.
But this proved insufficient, as the Neroverdi roared back in the second period, snatching a come-from-behind victory at the Giuseppe Meazza.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Lautaro and Thuram were both tired.
The Inter skipper has started in every match of the season thus far. For his part, the Frenchman only started from the bench on one occasion. That was last week’s Champions League encounter against Real Sociedad.
Marko Arnautovic received the nod, but will now miss a couple of months of action after sustaining a knock.
Report Urges Inter Milan Coach Simone Inzaghi To Rotate His Attacking Options
Therefore, the source believes that Thuram and Lautaro’s low energy level was a decisive factor in their underwhelming display last night.
Alexis Sanchez is currently the only natural alternative in the senior squad. The Chilean entered the pitch in the second half last night. But as the source tells it, his introduction only added confusion up front.
Nevertheless, the source insists that rotating the attacking duo is a must. While Lautaro and Thuram remain the best options, Inzaghi should grant them some rest to allow them to restore their energy levels.
