Inter director Piero Ausilio confirms Mauro Icardi was dropped against Roma “as a technical decision.”
The top two face off at San Siro, follow the action on our LIVEBLOG.
“Icardi was left out as a technical decision. We have many talented players and it’s understandable,” Ausilio told Mediaset Premium.
“There’s so much quality on the bench with players like Jonathan Biabiany, Icardi and Rodrigo Palacio.
“Was he left out because of his comments after the Bologna game? Absolutely not. It was a technical choice, there’s no problem. Roberto Mancini simply opted for other players.
“In order to build a squad you must get the most out of every player, giving a chance to those who haven’t played as much like Danilo D’Ambrosio.”
