Skills you have with the ball at your feet are called talent. Everyhing else (like off the ball movement) you can be taught. Especially when you're 19-year old.

Well, some would say that anything can be taught. On the other hand, off the ball movement and reading of the game in my mind is not such an easy thing to learn.

If it was then every technically flawed striker would have a goal scoring record like Inzagi.

And Hamsik's off the ball movement and reading of the game is world class. Also, he far better in front of goal than Kovacic. Quite simply, Kovacic can't play like Hamsik. I feel it'd be better for Mazzarri to change his tactics a little, but that's not going to happen

I disagree. IMO it's an instinct that is honed basically. But it depends on the player. Some players adapt to new positions easily. Hamsik has the speed and build/height which allows him to thrive in that positions. Kova has neither. Why are we even comparing the two? Because they both play in midfield? Should we compare Yaya Toure and Iniesta since they're both attacking mids? different players. By the way Hamsik was well on his way before Mazzarri. He had a huge breakout season in 2007-08

He's obviously still growing as a player. We all remember last year when he was absolutely tearing it up just to go through some cold streaks.

Honestly, fuck finishing.

With that dribbling ability he should've rounded the keeper it should've been easy. I think improving his shooting and adding a little bulk would make him instant world class, top 5 calibre player. I mean look how easy he makes space for himself. Then look at that idiot guarin. Guarin will shoot even if 5 players are infront of him, 1 is tugging his shirt another hanging on his back. He'll just do that thing he does where he swings his arm for the most obvious feints. but if kova improves his shooting and has that much space I think he will be the start of something for inter. and cmon Mazzari give him playing time.

This goal could have been goal of the year if he'd hit the ball at the far post instead.

He has to improve his finishing.

The only things you're born with are physicality, mentality and most importantly instinct. Although by the time you're a professional footballer, your technique is set in stone.

Mazzarri's system wasn't problem for Hamsik, who has grown up into world class player under Walt.

Kovacic has more talent than Hamsik, but he is too shy, I have a feeling that he's still intimidated by the fact that he plays in such a club like Inter. It's all about his confidence, when he starts to take more responsibility for our gameplay, he will be pure class, I'm sure.

Hamsik also has much more a physical edge to his game, something Kovacic doesn't have. Mazzarri had Hamsik playing in a role that was creative but also very energetic.

Zanetti is playing until his finishing comes

(but to be fair, Zanetti did score a screamer or two)

What a fucking goal from Capitano.

Earlier on in his career, he was a goalscoring threat tbh.
