The Nerazzurri coach on the match against the Venetians: “We have some bruises, but I’ll field the best line-up, a super-competitive team. Constant performance after Roma”
The thought of next Wednesday’s Italian Super Cup against Milan cannot be denied, but Inter’s head must remain for a couple more days in Milan, more than in Riyadh: “We know the importance of the Super Cup – commented Simone Inzaghi on the eve of the championship match – but the best possible, super-competitive team will take the field against Verona.” No thought of strategic turnover, therefore, also due to a not very comfortable ranking after the draw against Monza. However, there is no lack of ailments, from Nicolò Barella on down: “We have defections, it’s true, but with matches so close together and five substitutions available, I always need the entire squad.”
The near future
Monza, indeed. Inzaghi doesn’t want to talk about it anymore and says it in no uncertain terms after a hot week on the subject of referees after Juan Luca Sacchi’s early whistle. According to the coach, however, the Nerazzurri’s progress in the season from October onwards was satisfactory: “After the home defeat against Roma we won 7 out of 9, all except Juventus and Monza, which I don’t want to talk about anymore. We had constant performance: we have to improve by trying to eliminate the mistakes that sometimes complicate our lives”. How is the group, mentally? Well, replied the coach: “I saw the team very concentrated and motivated. However, we know that we must always try to improve because there will always be difficulties”.
For now, Inzaghi only sees gialloblù: “We’re coming from a costly match against Parma, we’re happy to have progressed. We’re facing a team in excellent condition, we’ll find a healthy team, fresh from two important games”. Among these was the fundamental victory over Cremonese, which boosted morale for the group that will visit Giuseppe Meazza: “It will be an intense match, many teams play with a three-man defense like Verona: we have already faced them over the years. They will be fundamental in the race, aggression and determination”. After, and only after, we will think about the Super Cup derby.
