Pioli: Gabigol Will Get A Chance With Icardi’s Ban

share on:

Gabigol could get the chance to break into the first team with Mauro Icardi getting a two-match ban according to Inter manager Stefano Pioli.

Icardi and Perisic have both been handed two match bans after the controversial defeat against Juventus. And this gives Pioli an attacking problem.

However, the manager has hinted at the possibility of starting Gabigol, who is yet to make a start since joining from Santos.

“Icardi is an important player for us, as are Perisic and Brozovic, but now we have a chance to show our quality as a squad,” said Pioli.

“It is not true that we don’t have a replacement for Icardi: with Andrea Pinamonti, Eder, Rodrigo Palacio and Barbosa I have plenty of options.

“We know what each of them can do. Gabigol starting? We will see. We can play with a traditional centre-forward or with a more mobile player.

“Eder and Palacio both have great movement, for example. It depends on the game and how our opponents set up.

“I will decide on our line-up over the next day or so.”
