Inter Striker Likely to Beat Timetable in Injury Return

Inter didn’t make rash signings after Marko Arnautovic went down with an injury, nor have they needed to resort to unusual solutions. The striker could return sooner than anticipated, as Simone Inzaghi stated after the Bologna match.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via Mediaset), the Austrian talisman is recovering quickly. He could be ready after the international break. Probably not right away, but perhaps for October 29th’s clash with Roma. The initial timetable expected him to be back in late November.

Arnautovic has missed two weeks because of a muscular distraction on the biceps femoris muscle of his left thigh. He’ll sit the tilts versus Torino and Salzburg in a fortnight. He could rejoin the group in practice shortly after that.

Inter have rotated Lautaro Martinez, Marcus Thuram, and Alexis Sanchez in the recent busy stretch of the schedule. The two starters have produced in spades. The Chilean veteran has been okay but has yet to contribute to a goal.

Our Take on Arnautovic

It’s good news, but it remains to be seen how long he’ll need to be in acceptable shape, considering his physique, and especially when Simone Inzaghi will be confident enough to field him from the start. The faux-pas against Sassuolo and Bologna proved that the gaffer hasn’t mastered the art of rotating yet.
