Italy coach Luciano Spalletti believes that Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi has “infinite quality” but can get better with work.

The coach spoke about the 24-year-old’s growth whilst in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews.

This season, Frattesi has been finding his feet at Inter.

The Italian international joined the Nerazzurri from Sassuolo last summer.

Frattesi arrived for a significant transfer fee, and with big expectations about what he could offer Inter.

So far this season, there have certainly been flashes of that. Frattesi has particularly shone with his performances as a substitute.

Frattesi has made a habit of popping up with big goals.

Perhaps none was more important than the 24-year-old’s stoppage time winner against Hellas Verona in Serie A in January.

Then there was also Frattesi’s assist for Lautaro Martinez’s late equalizer away to Real Sociedad in the Champions League.

So clearly Frattesi has more than had his say since joining Inter.

However, there is a sense that he has not quite shown everything that he has to offer.

Starting places have still been relatively few and far between for Frattesi at Inter. He is behind tjhe likes of Nicolo Barella, Hakan Calhanoglu, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the midfield pecking order.

Spalletti: Frattesi Has “Infinite Quality” But Can Still Grow

Italy coach explained why he has made Frattesi such a big part of the Azzurri setup.

“With the intensity and quality her has, he can really get at opposition defensive lines,” he said of the Inter midfielder.

“He has the sense of curiosity to go out and attack,” Spalletti went on.

“But he also has to do better to more technically clean with the ball at his feet.”

“If he keeps working hard he can get even better,” Spalletti said of Frattesi.

“He has infinite quality.”
