Luciano Spalletti has warned his Inter Milan players about potential complacency when they take on SPAL this weekend. After an inconsistent start to the campaign, Inter Milan are starting to go on a winning run that has seen them signify consecutive wins since the last international break. Inter are now going for a sixth consecutive win in all competitions when they travel to the Stadio Paolo Mazza this weekend. A crucial element that would help Inter Milan in this game would be the form of players like Icardi, who had a difficult start to the season but is now back in the goals.
Even then, there could be potential complacency from Inter Milan ahead of taking on a team expected to fight against relegation this season. SPAL have had some decent results at the Stadio Paolo Mazza so far this season and Luciano Spalletti is worried that his players may become complacent given the vast differences between the two clubs in terms of league table. So far, inter have come close to dropping points against the likes of Cagliari while they have also lost against the likes of Sassuolo and Parma. Such results are more than sufficient to warn the team about complacency, according to Luciano Spalletti. The 59-year-old has been at Inter for just over a year.
