Even though he moved from being a player to team manager, he has not lost his ability to conjure the team. In a video interview released by Perform Group, he explains the mentality that must prevail within the team:

“We need to focus on the championship or we would not be Inter, and we would fight to avoid relegation or for a place in the Europa League. Instead we want to win the championship. It is our duty.”

On Stramaccioni:

“It’s a person who knows the pulse of the team to 360 degrees. It is a person who is well aware of the need to improve both the technical as well as the psychological and mental aspects to improve the team.”

Cordoba then talks about the 39-year-old Javier Zanetti who continues to run on the pitches:

“I think we will have to study him in the future, but not as a person because from that perspective I have come to know him and know that it is an amazing person. But we have to study him as an athlete because physically he is complete and is so even when he plays.”

The new team manager also talks about Coutinhos development:

“The qualities he has makes him a unique player, with prospects, that will make a difference. But it is a process of development and he is still very young and we do not want him to take on all responsibility now.”

Meanwhile, Inter discovered Juan Jesus for the defense:

“He still has a lot to learn but he has shown that he is an Inter player and wants to make history with this team.”
