Inter’s style of build up play has come under fire from Italian journalist Fabio Caressa, who has suggested that the Nerazzurri do not play an expansive passing game. 

Antonio Conte’s side currently sit four points clear at the top of the Serie A table and look to extend their lead when they face Genoa at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza tomorrow, with striker Romelu Lukaku looking to add to his 17 goals this season.

However, in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Deejay earlier today, journalist Caressa echoed previous comments from former Nerazzurri striker Antonio Cassano that Inter did not play attractive football and instead relied too heavily on Lukaku.

“Cassano doesn’t like Inter’s style of play and neither do I,” Caressa declared. “I underline that Inter can score beautiful goals, starting from deep and building up.

“Inter are not a good example of team that builds from the back and through the team though, because they often launch long balls forward to Lukaku and use this option. Similarly, they often score goals from pressuring and winning the ball back. When the data is presented to me to suggest otherwise, I will believe it.”

The Nerazzurri hope to move a step closer to winning the title for the first time since 2010 when they take on Genoa, whilst nearest rivals AC Milan visit fourth-placed Roma at the Stadio Olimpico tomorrow evening.
