Inter coach Simone Inzaghi not lacking in confidence in Kristjan Asllani and Raoul Bellanova despite limited playing time, Italian media report
Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is not lacking in confidence in summer arrivals Kristjan Asllani and Raoul Bellanova, but is waiting for the right moment to give them their chance to shine in the team.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, which reports that the coach has been cautious about giving the duo a bad introduction and will identify what he thinks is the ideal situation for them. give them their first starts.
Asllani and Bellanova are the two members of Inter’s senior squad who are yet to start this season, apart from third-choice goalkeeper Alex Cordaz.
Moreover, neither has been used much on the bench, with their time on the pitch in Serie A totaling less than thirty minutes each after six matches played.
This naturally led to questions about Inzaghi’s confidence in the two young players, both of whom arrived in the summer to inject quality and freshness into the depth of the squad and potentially grow for the future.
The coach is actually happy with what he has seen from both Asllani and Bellanova in pre-season and training, but unlike highly experienced summer arrivals like Romelu Lukaku and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, he feels that if they are not introduced to the team in the right way, their progression on the team could be derailed practically before it has begun.
As a result, Inzaghi is waiting to feel that circumstances allow young players to debut and shine without huge pressure on their shoulders.
