Dzeko ‘a cyclone’ and Dumfries ‘has become Maicon’ in Napoli-Inter

by | Feb 13, 2022 10:18

The Italian press praised Edin Dzeko and Denzel Dumfries for their performances in Inter’s draw with Napoli yesterday, although Simone Inzaghi’s work left a little to be desired.

The match at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona yesterday finished 1-1, with Lorenzo Insigne’s early penalty being cancelled out by a second half strike from Dzeko. The draw gives Milan the chance to rise to the top of the league table today, should they beat Sampdoria.

Simone Inzaghi and Massimiliano Farris did not receive particularly high praise from the Italian media, with their team “not having the courage to win” the match, according to Corriere della Sera.

Things were more positive for Dumfries; La Gazzetta dello Sport noted his impressive contributions to the match, saying that “At one point it seemed to be Dumfries against everyone. The bewildered Dutchman of the start of the season has become Maicon.” His continued growth is bringing a smile to Inzaghi, who can now count on a reliable and consistent wing back.

Finally there’s Dzeko. The Bosnian veteran was one of the best players on the pitch in yesterday’s draw, with Corriere dello Sport calling him “a cyclone” and Corriere della Sera pointing out his leadership skills, saying that “he believes when others see only desperation, and that’s how leaders do it.” The former Manchester City man is proving to be one of the more important summer signings.
