The club did not take the defeat in Bologna well and will ask for a change tomorrow in the meeting with the coaching staff: 2nd place remains mandatory and the Coppa Italia is considered too little
February 27 – Bologna
In Appiano Gentile they will begin to call it “fatal Bologna”, because here the championships are lost, the Champions League races are complicated, but above all the certainties are lost. There isn’t a Radu to blame this time, if anything, one can regret a wrong exit by Danilo D’Ambrosio: for years the defender has pulled the cart and now, like many in the squad, he seems to be at the end of the race. In reality, yesterday Inter disappointed in such an evident way as to make official utterances unnecessary.
Mouths sewn between the managers after the game and also in the evening, no desire to comment on the new Bolognese slide, even if, after a night of reflection, it is probable that the club will already make its voice heard in public today. The umpteenth defeat can only have fueled a certain disappointment with the turn the championship has taken: from the conviction that they can really catch Napoli after the direct clash at the beginning of the year, they have moved on to a bleak -18, despite everyone at Inter are convinced that they have a top-notch squad for the Italian league. If Spalletti is going beyond all imagination, the Nerazzurri could have floated to a more honorable -8, if only in 2023 they hadn’t scattered points against decidedly inferior teams, such as Monza, Empoli, Sampdoria and now Bologna. A certain degree of frustration also arises from having sent a favorable piece of the calendar to the winds.
FACE TO FACE
Tomorrow in Appiano, for the resumption of training, a meeting between managers and staff is scheduled: it is a custom, especially after negative performances, but in this case it is likely that the face-to-face meeting will be more “heartfelt” than the usual, given that a place in the top four is no longer so obvious and it will be necessary to straighten the course together. Obviously, there is no risk of exemption for Inzaghi, who only a few days ago ignited Nerazzurri dreams with a match of European high nobility. But precisely that match only multiplies the regrets in the heart of Inter: going from such a high striker last Wednesday to such a low thud the following Sunday is not a good sign. Now the management is trying to consolidate the environment, from the staff to the fans, knowing full well that the next few months will give a definitive ruling on the coach’s work (and therefore on the future): the Coppa Italia is just a topping for the cake and not it may be enough, the continuation in the Champions League is a dream that can be touched by hand, but the main dish is second place in the standings. That can’t have failed, on the contrary he should be hit without falling even further down from Naples. And without further (and unwelcome) roller coaster rides.
