MILAN – Inter drew 0-0 against Atalanta at the San Siro and failed an important match point for the Champions League. At the end of the match, as was abundantly predictable, the journalists prodded Spalletti on Mauro Icardi's performance. The Argentine striker returned to play at the San Siro but was the protagonist of a rather mediocre performance. The Argentinian striker got the ball of Inter's possible victory but he got hypnotized by the Atalanta goalkeeper Gollini.
Spalletti: "Icardi? If he wants to become a great striker, he must work harder. "
The statements of Luciano Spalletti, in the post-match of Inter-Atalanta 0-0, were reported by Il Corriere dello Sport: «I speak of all the others, but not him. Today was not Mauro's day, but that of Inter, like the previous Sunday and how the next one will be. They are always the games of Inter, not of Icardi: he must do well for the team, he must engage, he must run, he must dribble and not just attack the opponent's goal, like all the strongest attackers do – the coach said nerazzurro -. Perisic? He started badly, then slowly started the engine and did what he had to. Brozovic? He got hurt, he has a muscle problem and he won't be in the next game ».
