A new Mauro Icardi, one that is more diverse according to the Corriere dello Sport, a revolution that is benefiting the team.
“Until the loss against Juventus in Turin, Mauro was averaged 21.2 touches and 13.1 passes per game. Only on three occasions that he had more than 30 touches (PSV, Lazio, Atalanta) and only in two that he had 20 or more passes (Torino, Atalanta). Maurito was a one-dimensional player: a fantastic goalscorer. However, since Inter-PSV on December 11, we have seen a different Icardi on the pitch. In the last five matches, the Inter captain averaged 35 touches, 22.6 passes per game. Against Udinese (45) and Chievo (43), he even exceeded the mark of 40 balls played to his teammates. It is true, he scored just 3 times but he has increased the number of shots on goal from 2.82 to 3.8.”
