Mr. 33 million represents the Inter special group 4 lucky charms accompanied by 1 controversial person
After Inter's 4-0 win over Udine, Sport spent more space on "Frattesi's smile".
This matter was briefly introduced yesterday. This time, let's talk about it.
In the battle of Inter Udine, the first four substitutions of the Nerazzurri were all "technical choices", replacing Bastoni, who had just recovered from injury, or letting Thuram, Calhanoglu and others rest to prepare for the Champions League. The fifth substitution in the 79th minute was given to Sensi, not Frattesi.
At that time, some people expressed puzzlement: Frattesi, who joined Inter with a huge investment of 33 million, has to become the "last choice" after Sensi? Inter Milan is now poor and embarrassed, and he has spent such a huge amount of money to sign him, and the attention of the senior management to him can be seen, but after 15 rounds of league games, he only started 1 Serie A.
Then the facts were revealed, and Inzaghi explained to the players that Frattesi was not only not dissatisfied, but also smiling and well-behaved, even if he did not play, this attitude was worthy of a one-touch triple.
What did the coach say to the players? Because of the speed of speech, the lip readers in the media could not read it accurately.
There are basically two kinds of speculation in the Italian media: either the coach tells the players to recharge their batteries, and the Champions League in midweek has to point to him. Or, or the coach said that it doesn't make much sense for Fra to play in such a "garbage time", it is better to let those "iron benches" who usually have difficult opportunities to find a feeling.
Speaking after the game, Inzaghi also had something to say about positioning his players: "I was hesitant from the start to start Frattesi, but for the need for next Tuesday's Champions League, I told him to stay calm. Frattesi trained very well and he made us happy, but there were two great players in front of him, Barella and Mkhitaryan. "There are two key points in the coach's words, one is that it has to be made clear that Fra is not the main force, and has to be behind Mkhitaryan and Barella. Second, Fra is only behind the above two, and her status is still higher than Sensi and others, and on occasions like this, where the iron bench is allowed to go up for a walk, Fra can't afford to grab it.
Commentator Altobeci pointed out that there is a group at Inter, the so-called "semi-main force", and Frattesi is a representative figure.
What is the concept? That is, the status is lower than the absolute main force, but much higher than the existence of the iron bench.
Inter have played 20 games on both fronts this season, with a total of 1,800 minutes of playing time, and 11 players have played more than 60% of the time (1,080 minutes), so I won't list them all.
Those who have played less than 300 minutes are the iron bench (or players who are troubled by injuries), such as Bisek, Klaassen, Sensi, Odero, Agume, etc. For the coach, a 4-0 lead like this, the opponent has already surrendered the gun, not on the body, the rhythm is similar to the chance of a friendly match, and there are many encounters. It is the coach who gives the bench the opportunity to "give benefits", which is not so much an "effective substitution" as a "reward" to encourage the attitude of these players who have made few appearances but put in the effort in training.
In between, there is the "semi-main force".
The difference between the semi-main force and the iron bench is that the iron bench can only play a substantial role if there are multiple injuries and stoppages in the same position in the team.
The semi-main team is different, and even if the team is free of injuries and all the players are alive and kicking, these players can still come in handy. After all, it's now a five-swap system. After all, Inter are a team that always accompanies the devil's schedule. After all, there will always be games that can't be opened and need to be won by a late hand.
So far, Inter have five or seven semi-main players, including De Vrij with 17 appearances (1,029 minutes), Augusto (20 minutes), Frattesi (17 (615 minutes), Asllani (13) and Alexis Sanchez (377) (10).
There are some exceptions, such as Darmian (Pavard, who is the main player, has been out for a long time due to injury, and Darmian's playing time has reached the main level), such as Arnautovic (if it is not for injury, otherwise he will definitely play more than 290 minutes), and the non-theme will be brushed aside. In addition, it is not ruled out that someone in the "iron bench" may be upgraded to a "semi-main force", such as Bisek, so you might as well keep an eye on it and discuss it later.
Among the above five and a half main forces, there are 4 people, who are the lucky charms of Inter.
In 20 games this season, Inter scored a total of 45 goals in 1,800 minutes.
De Vrij played 1,029 minutes and during his time on the pitch, the team conceded just seven goals.
Augusto played 816 minutes, and during his time on the pitch, the team scored a total of 23 goals and conceded just five.
Frattesi played 615 minutes, and during his time on the pitch, the team scored a total of 17 goals and conceded just four.
Asllani played 314 minutes and scored 11 goals during his time.
A simple conversion shows that when these four players play, Inter Milan either has a higher than normal offensive efficiency or better defensive toughness, and they are the team's "lucky charms". It's fair to say that these rotation players are a reliable force that has been tested in many battles.
Of the five players mentioned above, Sanchez's role has sparked some criticism.
The Chilean veteran has made 10 appearances on both fronts this season, totalling 377 minutes, and has scored just six goals and conceded four in his time on the pitch. With him on the side, the team averaged just one goal in 62.8 minutes, well below the season's norm. The goal conceded rate has also improved.
Such facts prove that Sanchez must also improve his role to justify his name. Fortunately, there is no national team task between now and next spring, Sanchez's form is on an upward trend, and it will be up to him to see if he can be ashamed and brave.
