The battle between Mauro Icardi and Lautaro Martinez for a starting spot on Sunday against Frosinone should end in favor of the number 9 according to La Repubblica. But later on, however, the starting center forward for Inter will be Il Toro.
“Luciano Spalletti has accustomed Interisti with the unpredictable choices. But logically, he wants the 21-year-old to be on the bench against Frosinone because he just came back from a muscular injury (out for two weeks). But Martinez knows that he is the starting striker for Spalletti. He knows that Icardi’s spot is now his as the number 9 has been demoted from captain to the team to a bench player. When Maurito was away for over a month, he created many problems for Spalletti and Lautaro was there to solve them for the coach by scoring and helping in all phases of the game. Unlike Icardi, who is destined to leave in the summer, Lautaro is the present and future of Inter.”
