Roma coach Jose Mourinho believes that Inter under Simone Inzaghi are having an easy time adjusting to the ideas of their new manager compared to some other teams in Serie A.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Giallorossi’s Conference League clash with Trabzonspor, as reported by L’Interista, the Portuguese coach noted that the Nerazzurri seem to play with a confidence that suggests that the style of play is already intuitively understood by the players.
There is much to go of the season for Inter and subsequent tests will be sterner than the Serie A opener against Genoa on Saturday was, but the Nerazzurri undoubtedly looked confident and assured as they cruised past the Griffone by a 4-0 scoreline.
This cam after a summer in which the club lost their coach in the form of Antonio Conte, and vindicates the decision to appoint Inzaghi as his replacement, with Mourinho noting that the team still play in an almost automatic manner and that the players understand their roles.
Mourinho contrasted this with what he sees from his own team and from that of their first matchday’s opponents Fiorentina, stating that “We can still grow a lot. I congratulated [La Viola coach Vincenzo] Italiano because we have been working with the players for less than two months.”
“And when his team plays like that I have to congratulate him,” he continued, “Maybe for a team like Inter it is different because Inzaghi has a team that plays with their eyes closed, it’s more difficult for us.”
