Boniek: It's the end for Inter

A winning era has come to an end at Inter and Riccardo Montolivo could be a part of their future, says Zibi Boniek.

The pundit, a former Polish international who played for Roma and Juventus in his career, made the suggestion after their 2-1 loss to Juve on Saturday.

"If Inter want a great future then the Nerazzurri will have to change many elements," Boniek told 90° Minuto.

"It's only normal that after you win so much that these things happen to a side," continued the former striker.

"There is the need to play football with emotion again.

"I don't see anyone in the side, apart from people like Javier Zanetti, who can give the team some energy and the desire to win."

Inter could make changes as soon as January and Boniek has suggested that they should bid for Montolivo.

"They could get him, maybe straight after Christmas, and he would be an ideal player for boss Claudio Ranieri."

Montolivo may be released by Fiorentina mid-season given that he will otherwise leave the club on a Bosman at the end of the campaign.
