The news about Inter Milan these days is basically that the Nerazzurri have reached the Champions League final again after 13 years. "This is really exciting news for all Inter fans. Since Inter Milan won the Champions League in 2010, in these 13 years, Inter Milan went from top to bottom, and the next year. In addition to the Champions League, we missed the Champions League. " League match. "Won the league championship for the sixth year in a row. Therefore, the promotion of this Champions League final will be the highest stage of the European War after many years of trough for Inter Milan!
But we are not only happy, but also see the hidden dangers in Inter’s active lineup: the aging lineup and excessive salary, which are all hidden dangers that limit the healthy development of the team and are necessary. Thirteen years ago, Mourinho led a group of veterans to help Inter Milan win the first and only Serie A triple crown in 100 years. However, Mr. Moratti, the father who devoted himself to the team and the players, failed to promote the reconstruction work in time due to the old lineup and the heavy salary burden of the team, which led to the deterioration of the team’s financial situation. And the grades dropped sharply. Bottom. Then he was forced to sell it to Indonesian Tohir. As a pure businessman, he never thought about running Inter Milan so well that it sank in the following years.
History is always repeating itself! Thirteen years later, Inter Milan once again reached the stage of the Champions League final, and ushered in another opportunity for reconstruction. In view of the two major problems of batting line, we will introduce young players to replace veterans, promote the rejuvenation of batting line, reduce the salary burden and rebuild the salary system!
Promote the younger batting order. Last season, Inter Milan was the oldest team in the top five of the league, but this season they have improved and become the only oldest team in Serie A.. But no matter what level, it is not an honor for Inter Milan.
Among Inter’s three strikers, 37-year-old striker Zhe Ke relies on skill and talent, but he has played a significant role by scoring goals for Inter and creating opportunities for his teammates in the frontcourt. Zhe Ke’s goals (goals+assists) decreased by nearly 40% compared with last season, and he can only maintain a "waiting time" of about 60 minutes, so the required concentrated schedule is a bit difficult. Intense.
On the defensive line, the aging of the defensive line is more serious because of Sikh’s departure and acerbi’s joining in the future. Acerbi, 35, Damian, 33, substitute A Dai, 34, and Devry, 32, whose contract is about to expire, are among the outstanding main defenders this season. The older defence is more experienced, but I am worried about his physical condition and possible injuries!
In addition to the 34-year-old mkhitaryan who joined in the midfield position this season, the main and substitute age ranges are reasonable, and rich experience and sufficient physical strength are also important reasons for supporting Inter Milan. Mid-stage. Therefore, gradually introducing young players to replace old players and reducing the average age of the team is an important way to improve the vitality and physical fitness of the batting lineup.
The reorganization of salary structure and reaching the final of the Champions League not only brought brilliant performance in sports, but also brought huge capital gains of more than 100 million euros, which helped alleviate the team’s financial crisis. Yes, it just "alleviates" rather than "solves" the crisis. In other words, it only treats the symptoms, not the root cause. Based on various benefits, Inter Milan will lose about 100 million euros this season if they don’t sell their players! Of course, this figure could have been lower, but Seck’s change fled to Paris, and the advertising debt of 23 million euros hanging on his chest could not be recovered, leaving about 75 million euros in Intel. I slipped out of Milan.
However, in these financial difficulties, after last summer’s cost-cutting campaign, Inter Milan’s player salary this season is still 132 million euros (AC Milan is 86 million euros), ranking second in Serie A. Yes! Lu Kaku’s 8.5 million euros, Zhe Ke’s 5 million euros, Debrie’s 3.8 million euros, Correa’s 3.5 million euros and Handa’s 2.5 million euros, but the performance of these players does not match the salary.
Special Olympics and Origgi are currently the highest paid players in AC Milan, about 3.5 million euros. However, Romano said that Rio’s salary after contract renewal is 5 million euros plus bonus, which may make the salary system of AC Milan more healthy. There are no fewer than six people with an annual salary of more than 5 million euros in Inter Milan, which shows that the overall and structural salary cost of the team is higher than that of individual individuals! It is precisely because he refers to Cristiano Ronaldo and lautaro that Bastoni dares to offer a renewal price of 5 million euros!
From the current point of view, Lu Kaku, Zhe Ke, Devlai, Handa, Danbu, etc. all want to stay in the team and have to accept different degrees of salary reduction. Cristiano Ronaldo and Bastoni can try to sell, while Correa can sell or rent them to ease the salary pressure of the team. In the next 2-3 seasons, through a series of combination boxing, the annual salary cost of the team will be reduced to less than 100 million euros, and efforts will be made to solve the problem of players overpaying.
Conclusion Under the current financial crisis, Inter Milan must reorganize the salary structure of the team, reduce the number of veterans, advocate a younger lineup, and promote the reduction of the overall salary level. The financial pressure will only increase, and the team will be dragged deeper and deeper. Deep into the abyss! Of course, reform is always accompanied by pain! To achieve this goal, as long as Inter Milan ensure the lowest score of the top four in each season, they can accept the result of losing the championship for several consecutive seasons.
As a club with a history of 100 years, Inter Milan should pursue a long-term bright future, not a short-term glory.
