Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has given an early appraisal of the Nerazzurri team and his expectations for the squad going into next season.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport after a 6-0 win in a friendly against Crotone, as reported by FCInter1908, the Italian tactician gave insight into the roles for some key players within the Nerazzurri squad.

Inzaghi has now been working with the squad for more than a week and his vision is beginning to take shape, with this afternoon’s friendly representing the clearest expression yet of what he wants from his Inter team.

The players have now had time to absorb the former Lazio manager’s ideas and expectations, and both at the level of individual players and in how the team performed as a whole, his influence can be seen.

On his feelings after the match, Inzaghi stated “I am satisfied because the team had an excellent game today and they have taken more than three weeks of training in the best possible way. I’m sorry for the injuries D’Ambrosio and Gagliardini have.”

He continued, “I am very satisfied because the guys have worked for 23 days in the best possible way.”

About the squad and the players who were not yet able to participate, he said “I think that besides these men, there are still many players missing. Today Vecino and Perisic arrived and started working. On Monday, Barella, Bastoni, and Lautaro will also arrive, and we will be complete. We will all begin to work together, which will be nice.”

The manager also spoke about the performance of new signing Hakan Calhanoglu, praising the 27-year-old’s contributions and his integration into the squad, and explaining his role as a central midfielder.

“We got him for this reason,” said the coach when asked about whether Calhanoglu would play as a central midfielder, “He worked very well together with his teammates, today he was very good, as was the whole team. Today we were playing against a team that were just relegated from Serie A, a team that attacked us very well.”

Inzaghi finished with words for young striker Martin Satriano, who has enjoyed an impressive pre-season, stating that “He is an interesting guy who works hard every day, he gives it all in training. Today at the end of the first half he was tired and I decided to replace him. He deserves based on his training the time he has gotten on the pitch.”
