An Italian football journalist has suggested that it may take Inter slightly longer to adapt to Simone Inzaghi’s tactics and plans than some people may expect, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during a live on his Instagram page, Sky Sport journalist Fabio Caressa took stock of how Inter’s season preparations under Simone Inzaghi are going.

Fabio Caressa suggested that after a manager like Antonio Conte leaves a club, it can be very difficult for the next manager to make the team their own so quickly. Antonio C0nte had a very specific and meticulous way of doing things.

“When a coach leaves like Antonio Conte who has a very precise, almost obsessive working method, getting used to change is not easy. Even with an excellent coach like Simone Inzaghi.”

The journalist also passed comments on some of the players who impressed him during the first pre-season friendly against FC Lugano. One of those was Federico Dimarco who spent the last 18 months on loan at Hellas Verona.

He had been heavily linked with a move away but could now be key for Inter.

“Federico Dimarco will remain, coming from a good season.”
