Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio discussed this evening’s clash against Bologna in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN before the game.
“There was no need for a confrontation, but a lot of work. We are lucky, we have a coach who is very demanding and a team that works a lot. They dedicated a lot of time to individual mistakes, then came the results.
“But Inter’s performances have always been there. Sometimes the result is missing due to small moments, often judgments are conditioned by this. Since the beginning of the season the performances have always been there.”
He commented on how it feels to play in an empty San Siro stadium.
“It’s effective if it is full, when it is empty you don’t feel pressure. The positive results outside the San Siro are a coincidence.
“We hope that the public health problem is soon solved and that the fans can return to the stadium, this is the beauty of football.”
Finally, Ausilio briefly touched on the subject of the transfer market.
“I’m not talking about numbers, you like them. The coaches talk about balance and determination. If it’s a 3-5-2 high or low those are the details that make news, other things count.
“Inter have played well the matches, they have deservedly won the recent ones. We hope to continue in this direction, we all want it.”
Antonio Conte’s Nerazzurri are currently third in the league table after nine games, with 18 points, five less than league leaders and intercity rivals AC Milan.
Juventus beat fellow Turin based side Torino earlier today and secured a vital three points, which allowed them to move ahead of Inter in the table, putting the pressure on for today’s fixture against the Rossoblu.
Bologna are currently 10th in the league, with 12 points. They have won three out of their last four games in the league, only dropping points to Napoli in this period.
Inter have a vital Champions League clash next week against Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk. Conte’s squad must win if they want to progress to the next round of the competition, considering that they’re currently bottom of their group.
