Bergomi: "Lautaro Martinez will make Icardi even better"
In an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport, Beppe Bergomi chimes in on Lautaro Martinez and his partnership with Mauro Icardi.
“I have seen a modern forward, one that is physically strong and good at separating between the lines but also useful in pressing. Together with Icardi, sparks will fly from this duo. On the field against Sheffield United, their understanding with each other was immediate.
Lautaro can make Maurito better because in the past, the Inter captain has struggled to find a partner that he can link up and talk to. Icardi often played as the lone forward, with the sole task of being there when the goalscoring chance appeared. This ended up limiting him: with the qualities that he has, he can be an all-round forward and not just an exceptional finisher. Martinez will help him in this respect.”
