Inter Milan Coach, Simone Inzaghi, spoke to DAZN following Inter’s victory over Lecce.
Expressing his satisfaction with his team’s performance, Inzaghi said, “I am very satisfied, it was not at all considered.” He also acknowledged Inter’s challenges during the game saying that it was hard for them to get an early goal but their control over the game increased after netting the second goal.
Inzaghi’s attention then turned to his team’s attacking duo, Marcus Thuram and Marko Arnautovic. Although neither player was able to score, the coach defended their performance, describing their work as ‘very good’. According to him, “Thuram and Arnautovic? Goal was missing but they worked very well, he and Arnautovic must go on like this.”
He further praised Carlos Sanchez and Matteo Darmian for their sterling performance despite the intense match against Bologna that didn’t give them enough time to recuperate.
Inzaghi also proved that recognizing an opponent’s strength is part of his success. He acknowledged Lecce’s aggression but showed appreciation for his midfielders’ efforts in managing this pressure – “We knew that Lecce is an aggressive team on the ball carriers. The half-wingers did a great job.”
While the coaching staff and team hold Arnautovic in high esteem, the coach urged him to remain calm and continue his hard work despite not scoring. Inzaghi was delighted with the performance of Jan Bisseck, whose diligence earned him a place in the team lineup instead of Benjamin Pavard, despite being relatively new to the team. Bisseck, he said, has worked hard “day by day, in silence, getting better all the time.”
Simone Inzaghi’s interview provided interesting insights into the world of professional football and highlights what can be achieved when a team pulls together, showing optimism ahead of the next games.
