Former Inter manager Andrea Stramaccioni analyzed the failed partnership between Nicolo Zaniolo and Paulo Dybala in light of the former’s recent decision to leave Roma only a few days away from the January transfer deadline.

“In my opinion, with Mourinho’s gameplan,¬†Zaniolo and Dybala basically cover the same area. Last year Zaniolo was perfectly integrated with Pellegrini and Abraham up front,” Stramaccioni commented on DAZN.

“But, now there is a problem. Zaniolo and Dybala are both left-footed so they always end up looking for the ball in the same area of the pitch. The match against Milan exposed this problem despite the late comeback.”
