Lautaro: 'Time & patience' at Inter

Lautaro Martinez believes ‘time and patience’ is needed before he can regularly pair up with Mauro Icardi in Inter’s attack.

Martinez has begun his Inter career playing second fiddle to Icardi, despite the Nerazzurri committing to spending €21m on the Argentine, but the forward is confident a partnership with his fellow Argentine will eventually suffice.

“Mauro was very close to me from the first day I arrived,” he told La Nacion.

'Impossible that Lautaro leaves Inter'

Lautaro Martinez’s agent insists there is zero chance of the Inter striker leaving on loan this month. “It’s impossible.”

However, Beto Yaque told FCInterNews.it: He’s always been happy. Then of course, like any footballer when he doesn’t play, let’s say he was a bit agitated.

Martinez gets Inter chance

Luciano Spalletti could hand Lautaro Martinez his chance to start for Inter, in tonight’s crucial game with PSV.

The Nerazzurri will qualify for the Last 16 of the Champions League if they better Tottenham Hotspur’s result at Camp Nou.

Barcelona have already won the group and have nothing to play for, so in practice the Beneamata must win and hope Spurs don’t.

Matias Vecino isn’t in the squad for tonight’s game, and while Radja Nainggolan is back he’s expected to be fit only for the bench.
