Before the afternoon session, a meeting between CEO Marotta, sporting director Ausilio, his deputy Baccin and the coach. Then face to face in the dressing room between the coach and the players. From Sunday onwards, a definitive turning point is needed: it is necessary to win the “dirty” matches and against the medium-small ones to have the same attitude shown with Porto
Double comparison today at the Pinetina. Sunday’s defeat in Bologna left its mark and we needed to talk to each other to start again. And so, after the words of CEO Marotta yesterday (“To be great, a club must have continuity. The team and the coach must do more to solve this problem. We, as a club, are always ready to support them, but it’s up to them in Appiano, in a direct confrontation, to find the remedy for such a problem”), Inzaghi and the players were protagonists when training resumed.
The first meeting was between the coach from Emilia, CEO Marotta, sporting director Ausilio and his deputy Baccin. It was a constructive confrontation, like many others that have taken place in the past: the bad performance in Bologna was analysed, the bad approach to Dall’Ara and more generally the difficulties that the team has in having a certain continuity of results and concentration always at the maximum. In viale della Liberazione the ups and downs highlighted in this 2023 are worrying like the performance against the medium-small ones, with the 10 points left on the street against Monza, Empoli, Sampdoria and Bologna. Inzaghi was asked to find a solution in order not to jeopardize qualification for the Champions League, which is the minimum and essential objective for the club.
WIN “DIRTY” RACES
Before training it was then the turn of the meeting between Inzaghi and the team. The coach emphasized Dall’Ara’s “non-performance” which was not the only negative test of the new year. Especially in terms of approach and intensity. Simone asked that certain mistakes not be repeated because otherwise it is not possible to win the… dirty races. From Sunday at home against Lecce, but above all in the away match on Friday 10 March in La Spezia, a definitive turning point is needed, more continuity of performance and the same attitude that the Nerazzurri showed in the first leg against Porto. Given the rankings and the balance behind leaders Napoli, every match can be decisive for qualifying for the next Champions League. Inter are not in a position to make distinctions between commitments or to play some matches without giving their best. Inzaghi from now on always wants the maximum competitive wickedness. The team got the message. Now we’ll see if he can put it into practice.
