Simone Inzaghi is uncertain which Inter Milan players will be available for Sunday’s Serie A game against Sampdoria, with some returning late from the international break and others struggling with injuries.
Four South Americans – Uruguayan Matias Vecino, Chilean Arturo Vidal and Argentines Lautaro Martinez and Joaquin Correa, made the World Cup qualifiers on Friday before making long trips home.
“I have to see the South Americans today because they arrived at night, Vecino just this morning,” Inzaghi said at a press conference on Saturday.
“Today we’re going to talk and do a warm-up, after which I’ll make my decisions. I won’t have plenty, so I’ll have to see who has recovered the best.
“(Alessandro) Bastoni came back tired, yesterday he felt some discomfort in training so he won’t be available. Monday we will do some tests. His absence will affect us, but I can make other choices with Aleksandar Kolarov and Danilo D’Ambrosio.
The Italian champion had a perfect start to the season, winning both league matches under new coach Inzaghi.
Sampdoria, also headed by a new manager at Roberto D’Aversa, are yet to score after collecting a point in two games. But Inzaghi is wary of his threat after the deadline signing of Francesco Caputo from Sassuolo.
“We are going to face an important and quality team. I know the coach, who always organizes his teams very well, and on top of that they got stronger with Caputo, ”said Inzaghi.
“It will be difficult but important, even though we are only at the start of the season. We aim to be the real Inter. ”
