Marotta Provides Another Skriniar Update, Talks Lukaku

Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta once again addressed Milan Skriniar’s renewal, dismissing the recent reports indicating that the club aimed to get a definitive answer in a hurry. He talked to SportMediaset Tuesday.

“There’s no deadline whatsoever. These dynamics are frequent in every club, and I would like to stop talking about meetings. We are focused on this difficult stretch of the schedule. We will play a lot in the next month, and there are many points up for grabs. We’d like to collect as many as possible. Besides the just respect toward a single player, our attention lies more on the matches we will face soon.”

Marotta weighed in on Romelu Lukaku, who suffered another injury, although it’s believed to be very minor.

“It happens. He was used to great games from the agonistic standpoint in his previous stint with us. This year, his stay has been mired by situations that have been challenging to handle. Therefore, we wish he recaptured the best physical form, which could allow him to score as much as in the past.”

Inter received good news on Hakan Calhanoglu and Niccolò Barella, who had bowed out early versus Monza, as they didn’t suffer strains. They’ll be questionable for the upcoming fixture versus Verona, but they will most likely be available in the Supercoppa against Milan in a week’s time. That should be the case for Lukaku as well. Coach Simone Inzaghi stated he was optimistic about Marcelo Brozovic, who could be fit enough to make the bench.
