Germany Under-21 defender Yann Bisseck will receive more playing time for Inter Milan in the next few weeks.

This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews. The newspaper report that the injury crisis in defense at the Nerazzurri will open the door for the 23-year-old.

So far this season, Bisseck has made two starts for Inter.

Both of these have come in the Champions League.

The German, who joined Inter from Danish club Aarhus during the summer transfer window, made his full debut away to Red Bull Salzburg.

Bisseck came off at halftime in that group stage match. This was mainly a precautionary measure as the defender had picked up a yellow card in the first period.

But then Bisseck played out all ninety minutes of a group stage match away to Benfica.

Being part of the defense that conceded three goals in the first half of that match could not have been great for Bisseck’s confidence.

But the German came back stronger along with the rest of the Inter team.

Bisseck played his part as Inter secured a memorable 3-3 comeback draw.

Yann Bisseck To Get More Opportunities For Inter As Injury Crisis Mounts

Bisseck’s second half display suggested that he is ready to play more of a role as the season goes on.

But at the same time, it was not likely that the German would suddenly become a regular starter.

However, over the next few weeks, things may change.

All of Alessandro Bastoni, Benjamin Pavard, Stefan de Vrij, and Denzel Dumfries are currently out with injuries.

Bastoni should be back against Udinese on the weekend. And then the other three should not be out for more than two or three weeks.

But in the meantime, Inter are stretched thin at the back.

Therefore, it looks very probable that Bisseck will be called into action.

Inter clearly signed the German as a player for the future. The few cameo appearances that Bisseck made early on in the season confirmed the club’s plan to slowly blood him into the team.

But now the 23-year-old has had a settling-in period.

And it will be up to Bisseck to show that he is mature enough to play his part in carrying the load in a very depleted-looking Inter backline in the coming fixtures.
