Only 8 of the first team for Inzaghi. Physiotherapy only for Calhanoglu
After the debacle in Udine, Inter met in Appiano on Wednesday to resume preparation. With 15 nationals absent, only 8 players from the first team available to Inzaghi, including the ailing Lukaku and Calhanoglu. Both have worked apart, but the Belgian continues to improve and at this rate he could join his teammates within a few days and then return to the field in the second half against Roma. Greater caution for Calhanoglu, who only attended physiotherapy sessions. The Turk is on the mend, but only at the weekend will there be clearer indications of his presence against the Giallorossi.
Cordaz, Handanovic, D’Ambrosio, Darmian, Gagliardini and Mkhitaryan, the only ones available to the coach, mainly carried out exercises on the field. Given the very small number available, replenished with some young players from the Primavera, the work was concentrated more on the athletic part, but the coach also took advantage of it for some tactical review. A new session on Thursday morning.
The defeat against Udinese burns but all the waste must be eliminated as soon as possible. The championship has just begun and there is plenty of time to recover as long as you regain confidence and unity that the defeats have undermined. Starting from Roma, the team must change direction and give signs of awakening. An extra Lukaku in the engine can be useful, but Big Rom cannot solve the (many) problems of this start of the season alone.
