Always on target in the matches at the Meazza, the Bosnian leads his team against Udinese. Body care and leadership: so he was reborn
It is never a bad idea to rely on Edin Dzeko. Don’t worry: even if you didn’t put your watch back tonight, for solar time, you can be sure that 9 at San Siro will be punctual like no one. He does not miss a beat, he who has not yet found a home in Milan. While waiting for a terrace with a view, he took possession of the Meazza penalty area. He’s just as comfortable over there, as comfortable as on the sofa, as comfortable as when you spend an evening with friends. Today the invitation is for lunch time: Simone Inzaghi cooks, to launch himself in the best possible way towards the Sheriff and the derby. The highlight is Dzeko. And you’re not wrong with him, play it safe. The numbers tell it: so far the Bosnian has always scored at San Siro in the league.
Five goals in four Serie A games at home, if desired, they would also be six in six games including the Champions League: with him in Milan we start from 1-0. The journey has just begun but promises to go a long way. Dzeko entered Inter on tiptoe, but the Nerazzurri seem to have been dressed for a lifetime. Udinese is the next stage, after the rest of Empoli. Inter are mirrored in Edin, they are philosophically built around the Bosnian: with no other striker like him, Inzaghi’s offensive maneuver develops smoothly and the chances of goal multiply. Today Correa (favorite) and Sanchez are playing next to him. And the center forward wants to extend the streak in home games. What then, even the absolute numbers make noise. In the first year of Inter only Nyers and Quaresima (9) and Ronaldo (8) did better than the Bosnian after the first 10 days. To keep the pace of the phenomenon today we need two rings: be careful, Dzeko has recharged his batteries in Empoli.
A bit like what happened with the move to Inter from Rome: other motivations, rediscovered centrality, freshness in the games, fresh air and a totally different working group. Edin needed this. And Inzaghi is making the most of it. The field is there for all to see. What is least seen happens in Appiano, in the locker room. Dzeko has been with Inter for two and a half months, but has already become an important reference for his teammates. He, Perisic and Kolarov are a supporting axis when the lights go down and with behavior there is an example to be set. That three over thirty-year-olds do it – with training, attention, dedication – is the best possible example for the youngest. Perisic, Dzeko and Kolarov are linked by a friendship that goes back a long way. And they know what it is like in a winning locker room like few others – perhaps only Vidal and Sanchez – in the Nerazzurri squad.
Dzeko has scored so far in all ways: head, right, left. The most complete striker there is has completed Inter. And now he’s got it into his head to fill his wall with the trophy he’s missing. He also revealed in the interview with the Gazzetta that he had chosen the Nerazzurri to win in Italy as well. It has shoulders that have been able to withstand the brunt of Lukaku’s legacy. Now he must, if possible, accelerate again. Because there is an urgent need to help the teammates to launch themselves towards next Sunday’s derby and towards a Scudetto that already passes through a run-up. Inzaghi knows how to manage his energies. In Empoli the bench was physiological. But in reality, it is more a matter of mental than physical energies. The data in the hands of the inzaghi staff tell of a player with numbers definitely above the average of a 35 year old. The rest is put to us by the player, who devotes a lot of time to the preparation phase of a training session and to that of post-parity recovery. Because the goals are scored at San Siro. But they are built earlier, much earlier.
