Italian Media Highlight Importance Of Hakan Calhanoglu & Federico Dimarco In Simone Inzaghi’s Inter

Inter under new head coach Simone Inzaghi have already shown interesting new tactical shifts compared to how the team played under Antonio Conte the previous two seasons.

This is highlighted by today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who note in particular the key roles played by two new arrivals.

Even though Inzaghi inherits most of the same players used by his predecessor as manager, and plays with a back-three system as Conte did, he is already reconfiguring the style of play, and is giving important roles to new arrivals.

The Gazzetta compares the responsibilities given to Federico Dimarco to those of Oleksandr Zinchenko in Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side.

Dimarco returned from a loan with Hellas Verona where head coach Ivan Juric helped him tactically develop, and the 23-year-old has been playing in both wing-back and wide centre-back roles for Inter so far, as the Gazzetta notes, which he had also done under Juric at Verona.

In a deeper role, Dimarco is given the task of making under-lapping runs and over-loading the midfield, which could become a key feature of the Nerazzurri’s style of play under Inzaghi.

Calhanoglu, meanwhile, also looks to be one of the most important figures already after his arrival on a free transfer from city rivals AC Milan.

The Turkish midfielder, the Gazzetta notes, has a key role in ball-carrying and dribbling, with his technical ability on the ball setting the tone as the new manager expects his team to establish control of the game in midfield.
