Inter, Inzaghi after Lecce: the coach’s words

The Inter coach after the 0-4 against Lecce: “There are many games left with many points up for grabs, I’m not calm. Lautaro must continue like this”

Ten out of ten, like the grade that every parent would like to see on their children’s report card: since the beginning of 2024, Inter have won all the matches that the calendar has presented them and the double digit almost arrives for a walk in Lecce’s home, 0 -4. This is the impression given by Simone Inzaghi’s team in Italy, which responded to Juventus at the Via del Mare, remaining at +9 in the standings despite a massive turnover: “Lautaro must continue like this – the words of the Nerazzurri coach at the end of the match – , it is fortunate to have players of this quality in the squad, as had already happened to me with Immobile at Lazio. There are many matches and tonight I was in doubt whether to start with him or Arnautovic. Marko, after Atletico Madrid, however, had had some problems with a hint of fever and I decided so.”

never stop

As usual, however, Inzaghi always tries to raise the bar to already dizzying levels: “Yes, this Inter can be improved because the last three months of the championship are missing which are the most difficult. There are many matches and we must not lose players. Behind these successes there is a lot of work, I have been lucky enough to have had a staff for more than ten years and I know them by heart. We have a strong club behind us and players with great availability.” In short, congratulations to everyone from the coach, who however does not lower his guard: “I’m not calm, there are a lot of games left and there are a lot of points up for grabs: at 0-1 we should have done better on Blin’s opportunity, I still have to see it again. Lecce’s away game came 72 hours away from Atletico Madrid with a team that built almost all of its points at home.” Finally, a special mention for the much talked about ‘reserve’ attackers: “Arnautovic and Sanchez? I didn’t need to see these things, I had already talked about how much I believed in them in the past. Alexis didn’t score, but he scored many goals in career. Today we had six absentees and it’s not easy – concludes Inzaghi -, but not even against Atalanta will it be a championship match point. Mkhitaryan still on the pitch? It’s fundamental.”
