Antonio Conte got Inter’s season back on track by reverting to what he knows best, according to his former Juventus teammate Alessio Tacchinardi.
Inter went four points clear of AC Milan at the top of Serie A on Sunday with a 3-0 win in the Derby della Madonnina, their 13th win in 16 league games.
Conte has improved the Nerazzurri’s form after a poor start to the season by abandoning the experiment to play a more expansive style of football and returning to last year’s 3-5-2 system.
“Inter’s exit from the Champions League was down in part to the experiments Conte was trying,” Tacchinardi told TuttoMercatoWeb’s radio station, TMW Radio, today.
“Conte has understood along the way that the more he goes ahead using his own ideas, the more results he gets.
“Inter are a great team.”
Conte’s side are on course to break all sorts of goal-scoring records at Inter this season, having netted 57 times in their first 23 league games, with a report arguing today that this proved he was not a defensive coach.
