Inter's coach, who again did not do without the Argentine striker, said "Messi and Cristiano only make the difference."
Luciano Spalletti, coach of the Inter, charged against the Argentine Mauro Icardi, who excluded from the list for the game lost in San Siro against Lazio, to ensure that there is no need to " ask a player to see the shirt "of his team.
Spalletti was calm when asked about whether the presence of Icardi would change the result of this Sunday and considered that the forward of Rosario is not a player that "makes the difference", in statements to the Italian television Sky Sport
"How many games have we lost in the last years and he was in the field?" The other players deserve to play the same way as he. Because it's been brought out, it's OK to be out. The events are clear, "he says. affirmed Spalletti, visibly annoyed by questions about Icardi.
Inter lost 1-0 this Sunday in San Siro against Lazio, in a game in which Icardi sat down.
The Italian coach said at the press conference on the eve that Rosario's forward was not ready yet to compete and he regretted Sunday that around the club he spoke of a "negotiation" between a player and directive so that it returns to compete.
"It was said that he was again available to play after a negotiation. Ask an Inter fan. Ask him if he pleases that a player must be asked to get in the shirt of the Inter, "he said.
"Icardi could also play 45 minutes, but it was correct to play others. You have to have credibility in a dressing room and I have it for 22 years," he added later, presuming his long career.
The Interistant striker does not play with the Inter since February 13, when the club took over the captaincy against the polemics of his and his wife and representative, Wanda Nara, for the renewal of his contract.
The official reason for this low was a knee problem, although Spalletti's words clarified Sunday again that there is a notable tension between the two sides for extra soccer reasons.
"Icardi today had to be out. Now he'll work again with the group and we will see. Only Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo make a difference. It is the discipline the true strength of a team and a professional "Sentenced Spalletti.
