- Mauro Icardi's agent Wanda Nara has faulted Inter Milan's manager Luciano Spalletti over his stand on not playing the Argentine forward
- Spalletti insists he will not pick Icardi despite ongoing war between Inter and the forward's agent
- Icardi has not played for Inter since losing the captain’s armband six weeks ago
Luciano Spalletti, Inter Milan manager, and Mauro Icardi's agent and wife Wanda Nara have been involved in hot exchange of words as her husband sat out of Serie A action.
According to English AS, Icardi has not been included in Inter matchday squad by Spalletti since stripping him of the captain’s armband six weeks ago
And on Sunday, March 31, Icardi was missing again as Lazio claimed a 1-0 win at San Siro.
Reacting after the match, Spalletti insists ongoing discussions between Icardi and Inter is disgraceful.
"It's obvious for everyone to see what happened. It's obvious," he told Sky Sport Italia, amid reports of a training ground row this week. "The way he has behaved, he needs to stay away and others have to play.
"Negotiating with someone just to get him to pull on the Inter shirt. What, do I need to email 20 lawyers and ask them if I can call someone up?"
Interestingly, Icardi and Nara were at the San Siro as Inter surrendered all points to the away side's home defeat and the 26-year-old's agent replied Spalletti’s latest ‘attack’ her man.
"Mauro is ready and it's all down to the coach's decision," Nara was quoted as saying on TV show Tiki Taka.
"If Mauro came back, would he make the same choices? It depends on what choices... I don't know. It depends on how you see the situation.
"Mauro has not yet spoken: he only expects to play and is preparing for this.
"His [Spalletti's] words are not a step back. Mauro is used to hearing so many things around him, but then focuses on what needs to be done to help Inter on the field."
She further stressed that Icardi's silence should not be taken for granted.
"He had a television camera right in his face throughout the game.
"He was willing the team on and obviously cares a lot for his team-mates, but he doesn’t need to say it out loud or on social networks,” Icardi's wife submitted.
