“We had a heated argument with Ibarbo, but everything is solved now”. Those are Rannochia’s first words to Sky after the 1-1 draw against Cagliari. “Have you noticed our new way of defending? We defenders are always running, and because of this we rarely make mistakes”. In order to score against Inter, Inter has to allow it. “Cagliari created very little, just a handful of chances in the entire game. We created a lot of chances, but still we only managed a draw. Now we will face Roma, we are on the right track. We have started from square one, as you should when the last two seasons have been as bad as they were. Now we need to keep playing with the same commitment and attitude”. But what has actually changed? “We are definitely more compact as a team than before. Our opponents do not get close to our goal as often, which means that there is less work for us defenders. This helps us to be less tired and more alert when we really need to intervene. Even the strikers put a lot of effort into helping us”.
