Lautaro Martinez continues to take on great responsibilities especially now given that, between real and fake injuries, Luciano Spalletti only has him as a center forward.
“At only 21 years old, in his first season in Europe and in a big team like Inter, it would be unfair to ask him to score the same amount of goals as Icardi. This would be a difficult task, also taking into account of the former captain’s goal scoring average. But Il Toro has so far shown that he can guarantee the team something else, if not the goals. For example, against Sampdoria, Lautaro opened up spaces for his teammates, going to battle versus any opponent. Not surprisingly, Spalletti recently described him as a tank.”
