Italian football manager Luigi ‘Gigi’ Cagni has criticised Inter manager Antonio Conte and has admitted to being confused with regard to why Conte insists with the tactics that he is.

Inter have not made the start that they were expected to in the 2020/21 season. They currently sit down in seventh place in Serie A and are five points short of league leaders AC Milan. They are also sitting bottom of their group in the Champions League after three games played.

“He is not showing what everyone expected of him. He’s not doing much tactically to fix things,” Cagni explained in an interview with Italian radio station TMW Radio, yesterday night.

“He keeps on insisting with the three-man defence even if the team can’t play that system. An intelligent manager would change and then come back to it later. It seems strange to me that someone like him, who is so good, doesn’t do it.”

He then spoke on the Serie A season and the race for the Serie A title, which appears to be far more balanced than it has been for many many years.

“It’s a strange league, I don’t think Juventus will manage to win it. Milan are taking advantage of their slow start, as are Roma. I hope Napoli and Lazio can compete too.”

Cagni, who last managed Brescia, where he spent a large chunk of his playing career, concluded by speaking on the difficulties that Inter attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala are experiencing at the moment.

“Eriksen and Dybala are both responsible for the situation. If you say you are strong and you want an important contract, you don’t talk a lot but you play and prove that you are up to it.

“It has nothing to do with the game, it depends on the players. What Dybala says on social media is not good. A strong players proves to be a champion on the field, not off it. The same goes for Eriksen, he showed sparks from time to time but you have to show it for 90 minutes.”
