SINGAPORE – Not only Icardi and Nainggolan, Antonio Conte rejects a third big illustrious at home Inter: Ivan Perisic. A new message sent by the technician to the company, after those of yesterday at the press conference. Also because Conte continues on the same line even after the knockout with Manchester United: harsh and direct words, to make explicit his mood which is anything but peaceful.
"The answers and the feelings are not positive, despite his commitment", the thought of the coach of Lecce on Perisic, who seemed to have started as a starter in the 3-5-2 against the Red Devils but instead he initially sat in bench. "I don't think it's suitable for the features to do the role I ask, for the moment I think it can only be the attacker. On the other hand, instead, I saw Dalbert well ”.
A clear rejection for Perisic that also reopens the market discourses, given that it seems difficult the Croatian can make the attacker on a permanent basis. The 45 ′ in the pointy shot near the young Esposito gave some discreet indication, but it is an experiment that cannot be repeated. In fact, there are few positive signs in the debut at the International Champions Cup in Singapore, with all the excuses of the case since it is still July football.
The heat and the workloads have certainly not helped Inter, who in the first half kept the field well but collapsed in the second half (where Barella made his debut without rings), dominated by a Manchester United decidedly more on the ball. The 2001 Greenwood's youngster's goal was decisive, with a left-handed man diagonally short of Handanovic. "On the positive side, I saw the commitment and the desire, but there is so much to improve. We have to work on everything ", Conte's words in the post-race.
However, the theme of Lukaku , who remained seated on the bench for all 90 minutes, remains at the table. At the end of the race the Belgian was seen talking in the field with Nainggolan and Perisic, then being greeted by Conte (who also entertained Pogba) with a pat on the back. "I don't think it's right to talk about a Manchester United player – explained the coach -. I consider him a player who can improve us. But on the one hand there is my hope, on the other hand we will see with society ".
A hope that goes entirely from the will of Inter to approach the requests of United, while trying to place Nainggolan and Icardi (in Ibizia with Wanda Nara and children). Meanwhile, however, Conte is heading towards Tuesday's challenge against Juventus in Nanchino still without attackers (source: Ansa).
