Inter Manager Spalletti: “Winning Is Our Only Goal Tomorrow Against Cagliari”

Inter Manager Spalletti: “Winning Is Our Only Goal Tomorrow Against Cagliari”

Inter manager Luciano Spalletti addressed the media from the media room at Inter’s Appiano Gentile training base today ahead of tomorrow’s match with Cagliari. He firstly spoke on how Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Atalanta has affected how Inter will go about their business for the remainder of the season.

“We created the chance to manage things for ourselves but considering how results have gone, we can’t do that anymore in the next six matches. I don’t know how many points will be required to qualify, but we need to analyse the situation match by match at this time. Tomorrow, winning is our only goal. The fact that we’re going into the game not having scored much in recent games can’t influence the analysis of our performances.”

Spalletti then challenged his side to get back on track after the aforementioned draw.

“We always need to show something more, be it individually or collectively. We must be more demanding with regard to our finishing because we’ve prepared well and the team has created chances. The step that we have to take isn’t a huge one, it’s part of our development and we need to get back on track in the coming matches. We know what our objective is and where we want to end up. In terms of character, I expect something to click that shows that we’re aware of the situation that we’re in. The numbers are to be analysed at the end but we’re in a position to read them in a positive manner.”

He concluded the press conference by talking tactics and discussing some of the players.

“Rafinha is fine but it’s normal that he needs more time to recover after a long period out and you don’t know what to expect in the next match. Evaluations are to be made day by day, training session by training session. Candreva? We’ll have a look at him today but he did work with the ball yesterday and took part in training. More playing time for Karamoh?  It’s true that he came on a bit late in Bergamo but it wasn’t a straightforward match. I’m convinced that he can be useful from here on until the end of the season. A three-man or four-man defence? I’m comfortable with either, I just need to pick the best solution to be more unpredictable.”
