Matias Vecino Discontent for Lack of Playing Time at Inter

Matias Vecino hoped he would have more minutes this season based on early conversations with Simone Inzaghi. He has had more regularity and fared better with Uruguay: “I have always had the chance to play consistently with the national team. It is clear that such aspect gives you a lot of confidence. It allows you to show your potential and perform to the best of your capabilities.”

Vecino talked ahead of the match against Bolivia, as FCInterNews transcribed: “This kind of moment can happen in football. We often go through different sets of circumstances. At Inter, the situation in the past few months has not been what I thought it would be before the start of the campaign considering what I had discussed with the club and the coach.”

Vecino is not pouting but will assess his future: “You always have to respect the decisions of the manager. And then stay focused, practice as well as you can, and be ready when the team needs you. It might be something momentary as there could be positive and negative periods. If things did not change, we would have to talk to find a solution that could satisfy everybody, always with the maximum respect.”

The 30-year-old has played just 287 minutes so far through ten appearances. He drew the start two times. He has been splitting time with Arturo Vidal and Roberto Gagliardini behind the starters. Differently from last season, he had no physical problems. The contract of Vecino is up in June 2022.
