It must have been the Argentine conquest of the World Cup. Since returning from Qatar and the celebrations at home, the certainty in which Lautaro Martinez has been expressing himself at an elite level in the Nerazzurri shirt, and above all, compared to previous years, is ensuring his consistency as a goal scorer. Yes, since Lauti has always been consistent in terms of staying on the field, never pulling his leg, or rather his ankle, even when he was in pain, playing in a World Cup as a protagonist.
He has 8 goals scored in 2023 in all competitions. A massive goal decided the Milan derby in the league, while another put the seal on Inter’s triumph in the Super Cup version of the derby against Milan in Saudi Arabia. Still another allowed Inter to avoid a sensational defeat in the Coppa Italia against Parma and allowed them to reach the semi-finals of the competition.
Meanwhile, Lautaro has found his friend Romelu Lukaku up front, and his understanding with Edin Dzeko is always at its best. Waiting for Inzaghi to figure out who will be the attacking duo on Wednesday evening at the San Siro against Porto, Toro awaits a litmus test in Europe: above all Inter will cling to his skills and technique to try to reach those quarterfinals that have been missing for too long.
A leadership role may follow him as after the Skriniar episode, Lautaro has already tasted the feeling of being the captain of Inter. Everything leads us to believe that he is the right man to take over Handanovic’s legacy and now all the fans seem to have no more doubts of this.
From the pitch to his private life, Lautaro is truly experiencing a magical period. He is about to become a dad for the second time and he will soon crown his love with Agustina in marriage. To express oneself at great levels on the pitch, happiness in one’s private life plays a fundamental role. After all, behind great men there are great women. Inter can sleep peacefully.
