Icardi´s Inter exile set to end at Genoa

Mauro Icardi has been named in Inter’s starting XI for Wednesday’s Serie A trip to Genoa, with head coach Luciano Spalletti bringing the striker’s near two-month exile to an end.

Icardi has not featured for Inter since a 1-0 win at Parma on February 9, with speculation over his future, a contract stand-off and conflicting fitness claims all playing a part in the ensuing saga which also saw him stripped of the captaincy.

The 26-year-old trained before the 1-0 weekend loss at home to Lazio but was told to “stay away” by Spalletti following reports of a fresh dressing-room incident.

But the slate appears to be clean once more for the Argentina international, whose head coach was keen to present a united front at his pre-match news conference on Tuesday after fruitful work behind the scenes from chief executive Beppe Marotta.

Following AC Milan’s 1-1 draw at home to Udinese on Tuesday, Inter can open up a four-point gap ahead of their bitter rivals in fourth with a victory at Genoa.
