Icardi claimed that he was injured, but his absence was actually due to the clubs decision to deprive him of his captainship.
It is reported that Zhang Kangyang personally called high-level officials such as Marotta and Antonello to urge them to solve the Ikardi problem and try to ease tensions between the two sides.
Zhang Kangyang hopes Ikardi will return to the team in the next Europa League match against Frankfurt, but senior officials fear that Ikardi may refuse to return without the captains armband.
Icardi informed Inter physician and coach Spalletti that he was still unable to train. He has been absent from training since he was stripped of the captains armband on February 13 for an inflammation of his knee, but the club has long officially refuted that claim.
