Gagliardini with a Strootman like performance against SPAL
Spalletti called, Gagliardini answered. The Italian midfielder of Inter responded greatly to Spalletti’s trust yesterday against SPAL. Let’s go back a couple of weeks at Roma where Gagliardini was replaced in the middle of second half, appearing a bit tired.
But yesterday, the former Atalanta player looked like the player that he was in his first few months as Inter player: recovered 7 balls (made a lot of interceptions), ran for 11.9 kilometers, 124 balls played, 31 more than that of Borja Valero (93) and was probably Inter best player. In short, it was a Strootman like performance for the young Italian midfielder and perhaps one day, with great determination and the willingness to learn, he will be a new version of Strootman for coach Spalletti.
