Inter Milan icon Giuseppe Bergomi identifies Juan Cuadrado as the missing piece in Simone Inzaghi’s rotation system.
After five wins on the trot, the Nerazzurri suffered their first loss of the season last night at the hands of Sassuolo.
Denzel Dumfries broke the deadlock at the end of a positive first half for the Beneamata. However, Domenico Berardi created the equalizer for Nedim Bajrami before scoring the winner himself.
While Inzaghi has been rotating his starting formation recently, Bergomi feels that a profile like Juan Cuadrado remains missing.
The Colombian veteran joined the Nerazzurri last summer as a free agent after seeing out his Juventus contract.
The 35-year-old made three appearances off the bench and provided an assist in the process. However, he had to miss the club’s recent matches through injury.
Giuseppe Bergomi Argues Inter Milan Are Currently Missing A Winger Like Juan Cuadrado
As Bergomi explains, having someone like Cuadrado available can offer alternative solutions on the wings.
“Sassuolo are very difficult opponents. Inter didn’t have a bad first half, they created several chances but the Neroverdi know how to stretch the pitch,” said the 59-year-old in his appearance on Sky Sport via FcInterNews.
“They make you run backwards and spend a lot of energy. Inter currently lack options in some departments.
“I’m talking especially about the attacking department and the wings. Dumfries did well to score but Cuadrado gives you an alternative solution that Inter don’t have at the moment.
“The team has been stretched out, the players are a bit tired at the moment. There was a little uncertainty from Sommer on the equalizer but we must give credit to Sassuolo,” concluded Bergomi.
