Spalletti seriously considering Eder-Icardi as starting partnership
“Icardi does not like to share the box with another forward,” admitted Spalletti after the 1-1 draw with Crotone. But the Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that the Inter coach is seriously considering to start Eder alongside Icardi to remedy the lack of incisiveness that has hit Inter hard in the past two months.
“Eder is generous and flexible, can move according to the characteristics of Icardi. Even when Inter were winning, the isolation of Icardi in the box was evident. Perisic and Candreva rarely centralize and with central midfielders barely attacking the box, Icardi is usually left with two opposing central defenders. An extra man who is able to take one defender away and knows how to score goal is precious at the moment at Inter. Although, in order to field another forward, Spalletti risks giving up on both attacking wingers.”
In short, the pink newspaper predicts a 4-3-1-2 formation with Rafinha playing behind Icardi and Eder. The former Barcelona player is technically intelligent to player there, linking up the rest of the players.
