Alessandro Bastoni and Denzel Dumfries are back in training with Inter Milan, marking a positive turn for the team. The Italian defender, who missed the recent Supercoppa Italiana triumph due to thigh soreness, has resumed full training after undergoing individual sessions. His absence in the crucial match against Napoli was a precautionary measure by coach Simone Inzaghi, considering his recent discomfort. However, his full participation in today’s training session signals a promising recovery and a potential return to the starting lineup.
Similarly, the Dutch defender, who was sidelined for both Supercoppa Italiana fixtures and briefly on family leave, has now rejoined full training with the squad. Although Matteo Darmian remains a preferred choice for the upcoming match against Fiorentina. But Dumfries’ return adds depth to the team’s defensive options. While there are lingering concerns about Dumfries’ fitness, his active involvement in training suggests progress. Also, his attacking prowess will give Inzaghi a different option from the bench.

Amidst the return of the defenders, Nicolo Barella was notably absent from today’s training session. His absence is due to a suspension resulting from accumulated yellow cards, ruling him out of the upcoming clash against Fiorentina. Despite this setback, the break presents an opportunity for Barella to focus on individual fitness work. Inzaghi wants to maintains peak conditions for future fixtures and continues to be a vital asset for the team.
Bastoni will help Inter to improve their back three. So, Inter Milan’s return of Bastoni and Dumfries to full training provides a welcome boost to the defense ahead of upcoming challenges. However, Barella’s absence is could be big, but it offers him a chance to recharge and refine his fitness. But he will have to have a formidable presence on the pitch in future matches.
