Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi has earned praise for another high-energy impact substitution appearance against Monza yesterday.

Today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, highlight the Italian international’s contribution.

More than halfway through the Serie A season, Frattesi still has only made one start in the league.

But that does not mean that the 24-year-old former Sassuolo midfielder hasn’t contributed.

Far from it. In his first few months as an Inter player, Frattesi has found his qualities to be perfect for making an impact in the second half of matches.

That had certainly been the case against Hellas Verona last weekend.

Frattesi scored the winner in stoppage time of that match.

That was still not enough to earn the Italian a starting berth against Monza yesterday. Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi decided to go with the tried-and-tested trio of Hakan Calhanoglu, Nicolo Barella, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

But it always looked likely that Inzaghi would give Frattesi his chance at some stage.

And so it proved.

Davide Frattesi Praised For Another Impact Sub Appearance For Inter Vs Monza

Inter were already leading 3-1 when Frattesi came on during the second half yesterday.

But the fact that Monza had scored from the penalty spot just a couple minutes earlier had introduced some tension into proceedings.

Inter knew that one more Brianzoli goal or a couple good chances could give the home side the confidence to push for a late comeback.

So Inzaghi gave Frattesi his chance.

The 24-year-old instantly added new life and intensity to Inter’s midfield.

And this proved to be just what the Nerazzurri needed in the battle for superiority in central areas.

As Monza started to push forward in search of another goal, they naturally left a few gaps at the back.

And it was Frattesi who best exploited those spaces.

The Italian’s pass out wide and then dash into the space caused disarray in the Monza and led to the penalty from which Inter scored their fourth goal.

It may not have been as dramatic as Frattesi’s late winner against Verona. But the 24-year-old more than played his part late on as Inter wrapped up their win.
