Spalletti still waiting for Icardi-Nainggolan to blossom
That night in the Champions League has given Inter a lot of emotions but now they must leave it behind to climb the Serie A table starting Saturday against Sampdoria. Luciano Spalletti will likely continue to count on Radja Nainggolan who can still give a lot to Inter according to the coach. Due to an early thigh injury, the Belgian has not been fully unleashed but his natural leadership remains. The goal against Bologna is his highest point of the season so far but the former Roma needs to return to top condition to be able to act as glue between the midfield and attack, the heart of all movement.
Furthermore, Spalletti is counting on the relationship between Icardi and Nainggolan, this is one of the cornerstones of how he has envisioned his Inter to be. When the two are able to understand each other, the Nerazzurri will have an extra potentially lethal weapon.
