He is afraid to take responsibility when it's needed. This is his biggest issue. The other one is that he uses only his right foot. Otherwise he has speed and dribbling, but it looks like he cannot bear the pressure at Inter. I watched him last season, and he looked promising, but it is one thing to play for Cagliari, and completely another for Inter. Some people just cannot make the transition.

And this is exactly a point why youngsters are used so sparingly. They cannot take it just like that. Meazza is a scary place to play. Not only for the opponents but also for Inter players if they can't handle it. Prime example from recent years was Dalbert who completely fell apart at Meazza. Bellanova hasn't been the same (because the team around him is so much better), he's played okay in Meazza aswell but Empoli match was an example of the pressure you have there.

You are right. After the overwhelming frustration due to his performance, I thought twice about it, and the main fault is on Inzaghi as someone here mentioned. It's idiotic to throw so young and inexperienced player when we are a man down, everybody is going to attack (leaving big gaps on the back), and to expect him to deliver. Bellanova didn't have enough support in some situations, he made mistakes and therefore he shat his pants.

Italian journalist Fabio Ravezzani believes that the only reason that Inter signed Cagliari wingback Raoul Bellanova was because they also wanted to sign Bremer from Torino
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Telelombardia, via FCInter1908, Ravezzani claimed that as he understands it, the fact that Bellanova and Bremer share an agent was a key factor in the Nerazzurri’s decision to sign Bellanova.

Bellanova was brought in by Inter during last summer transfer window, with the 22-year-old the Nerazzurri’s designated reinforcement at wingback after the departure of Ivan Perisic. The wingback arrived on loan from Cagliari, with the Nerazzurri also having the opposition to sign him on a permanent basis from the Rossoblu at the end of the current season.

Inter had also been chasing then-Torino defender Bremer during the summer, although they missed out on the Brazilian to Juventus.

According to Ravezzani, however, the Nerazzurri’s pursuits of the two players were not entirely separate:

“It was a complementary signing,” he claimed.
“I’ve been told he was signed by Inter in preparation for the Bremer signed, since he has the same agent.”
“Obviously something went wrong,” Ravezzani went on, in reference to the Nerazzurri’s high-profile failure to land Bremer.
Reading this + his performances = Inter not redeeming him might make sense.

But tbh, I call that at least partly bullshit. They have the same agent, okay, but I doubt we definitely wouldn't have brought Bellanova in if his agent was someone else.

All this shit is coming up now when he had a bad performance in front of Meazza, everyone including the whole team expecting some miracles from the guy.
