Simone Inzaghi is happy with the result of Inter’s second Serie A match of the season, a 3-1 win against Hellas Verona, though he acknowledges that there were problems with his side’s performance.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the match, as reported by FCInter1908, the Nerazzurri coach spoke about the impact made by new signings, in particularly match-winner Joaquin Correa, and gave his impression of how the match went.

Inter didn’t start the match anywhere near as well as they did in last weekend’s season opener against Genoa, and were not unfortunate to fall behind 1-0 to the hosts in the 15th minute.

The Gialloblu made life uncomfortable for the Nerazzurri throughout the opening period, and it was only in the second half, especially after the introduction of multiple substitutes, that Inter began to take control.

In the end the victory is an important result early on in Inter’s season and the coach is happy with how it went, and hopes that he can see more of the team’s best qualities going forward.

“We suffered for victory,” said Inzaghi. “We had approached it well, then we conceded the goal and in the last half hour we did little to regain the advantage. Verona had an excellent first half.”

On the second half, he said that “We reorganised, we were good at finding a balance and the substitutions gave us something extra. It’s an important victory, during the week I said it would not be easy. Inter have won against Verona, but we suffered.”

The former Lazio coach admitted that Verona had put Inter under pressure and that the Nerazzurri were sloppy in conceding.

“We were made to suffer and took home an important victory. We knew that Verona would come man to man. (Ivan) Ilic was good at pressure, Samir’s (Handanovic) ball had to be better and Brozo could do better too [for the goal].”

As a final assessment of the team, he stated that “We were not very mobile and we made the wrong choices, the two mezzale clogged up the pitch a bit.”
