Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is ready for his team to make a positive impact in tonight’s Serie A match against Hellas Verona.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia before the match, as reported by FCInter1908, the Italian tactician spoke about his ambitions and preparations for the match.
After last weekend’s emphatic 4-0 win over Genoa, expectations will be high the Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri side can once again put on a show in the 45-year-old’s second game in charge.
However, the former Lazio boss expects it to be a tough match, and believes that if the players and the team are to shine again as with last week they will have to work hard.
“We certainly prepared the game well,” he said, “we had several days. We know that we meet an opponent who deserved more on the first day, despite the defeat, and know this will be difficult too.”
On the central pairing of Edin Dzeko, making his second start for the club, and Lautaro Martinez, making his first start of the season and first start under Inzaghi after he missed the opener through suspension, the coach explained that they still have some chemistry they have to build together.
“They didn’t have too much time to train together,” he explained. “Lautaro has shown a great desire to be out there. (Joaquin) Correa, (Martin) Satriano and (Stefano) Sensi will be on the bench with me.”
Of new signing Correa, he said that “I know him very well, he’s a player I like very much. He is the icing on the cake that we were missing, and I am sure he will add a lot to Inter.”
