Spalletti said Inter are “playing better than at the start of the season" after the win at Udinese.
“The team did well and had the right attitude, taking the initiative straight away and scoring an early goal. We can only compliment the side," Spalletti told Mediaset Premium.
Spalletti was asked whether the Nerazzurri could possibly do without skipper Mauro Icardi.
“It depends on who is replacing him. He is a top player, an exceptional finisher who has an eye for goal and knows where the ball is going. He doesn't need to chase the ball, he meets it.
“He might be able to do more when it comes to taking part in the build-up, but he is working on that. In any case, he's deadly in the box."
