Inter, Brozovic and De Vrij target Juventus

The team rest until Monday, but the Croatian and the Dutchman will still work in the gym to recover from their respective injuries. Full group between Wednesday and Thursday, after the return of the South Americans

At the Nerazzurri, the weekly agenda is taking shape in view of next Sunday’s super-match against Juventus. For Inzaghi and the medical staff, the injury situation needs to be assessed, with Brozovic and De Vrij called for extra work in the gym, but news is also expected from Lautaro and Vecino, both struggling with Covid. The only certainty, for the moment, concerns the resumption of training set for Tuesday. The veterans of commitments with the national teams will return to Appiano Gentile between Wednesday and Thursday: the first to return will be the Europeans, then it will be the turn of the South Americans Sanchez, Vidal, Vecino and Correa. Barring unforeseen circumstances, Inzaghi will be able to work with the whole team for three days before challenging the bianconeri.

hurt and positive

Inzaghi has given everyone three days off from today, but Brozovic and De Vrij will continue to work at Appiano. The Croatian and the Dutchman are yet to work on their calf injuries so they will have daily physiotherapy sessions in the hopes of being able to return to collective training on Tuesday. The Nerazzurri’s medical staff trusts them both, as the injuries encountered would be almost completely absorbed. Between the two, the one who seems closest to a return is Brozovic, but there is also optimism for the Dutchman. The same optimism that Inzaghi has regarding the two blocked by Covid, namely Lautaro and Vecino: the Argentinian, who continued to train individually because he is asymptomatic, is ready to return to Appiano at the first negative sample (a new test will presumably come done between tomorrow and Monday), while the Uruguayan will face the return trip from Uruguay, where he had traveled to answer the national team call-up.

The returns

The question of returns concerns a large group, but Inzaghi will be able to hug everyone again no later than Thursday. If training resumes on Tuesday for those who stayed in Italy, the next day it will also be the turn of Skriniar, Dzeko, Dumfries, Barella, Bastoni and Calhanoglu. Twenty-four hours later, it will be the turn of the South Americans, engaged in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday for the last day of Playoffs at Qatar 2022. Basically, before the game against Juve, Inzaghi will be able to lead at least three full-row training sessions in addition to the finishing touches on Sunday morning. The hope is that at least the nationals engaged exclusively in friendly matches (virtually all Europeans) will be able to return to Appiano without an excessive load of minutes on their legs.
