Former Inter Primavera manager Stefano Vecchi has stated his belief that Inter’s 1-1 draw away to Lazio over the weekend was a positive result for Antonio Conte’s Nerazzurri side.

Inter went 1-0 up on the half hour mark of the match thanks to a goal from Lautaro Martinez but were unable to come away from the Italian capital city with all three points due to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic equalising for the hosts shortly after the second half started.

“It was a positive result for Inter because Inzaghi’s team are a tough and difficult team to beat. It was an excellent performance from the Nerazzurri, I think it is imporant to see consistency in this sense,” Vecchi explained in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Sportiva earlier on today.

Vecchi, who is currently in charge of Italian lower league side Sudtirol then shared his belief that Inter have gotten closer to arch rivals Juventus, who only just pipped them to the Serie A title last season.

“I think Inter are a largely complete team in every department, they have signed players to improve them further and I think they are close to the top. Inter is certainly getting closer to Juve. ”

49-year-old Vecchi also had several spells as interim manager of the Inter first team during his four year spell at Inter which lasted between 2014 and 2018.
