Limited squad size due to FFP settlement agreement conditioning Spalletti's choices in CL
That big run of Sissoko, without Brozovic even managing to get close to him, is the photograph of an Inter squad that is doing their best with limited options in the Champions League.
UEFA FFP settlement agreement has certainly conditioned Spalletti’s choices and the most difficult department is undoubtedly the midfield where there are only four players for three starting positions. Always. And if Nainggolan raises the white flag like he did against Tottenham, Brozovic, Vecino and Borja Valero are needed to work overtime. At the end of the game, Brozovic had his tongue sticking out, the same with Borja Valero who does not have high quality 90 minutes in his legs.
In Europe, Inter cannot count of Gagliardini and Joao Mario, absences that weigh precisely in numerical terms even before quality. There is no solution unless there are incredible and unexpected news not currently foreseen on the transfer market.
