Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is happy with the debut performance by new signing Joaquin Correa, and with the result achieved by his team in tonight’s 3-0 win over Hellas Verona.
Speaking to Inter TV, as reported by FCInterNews, the Italian tactician expressed his happiness that the club were able to secure a positive result despite a difficult match, and praised his players.
The Nerazzurri were not at their best during the clash with Verona compared to their opening day encounter with Genoa, and they had to come from behind to get all three points, but an impressive debut from the bench by new signing Joaquin Correa.
The Gialloblu started well, and put Inzaghi’s men under pressure, which for the first half looked to have the team in some difficulty.
“I think we had approached the game well in the first quarter of an hour, then we conceded and for the rest of the half we could have done better, but sometimes it is right to give credit to the opponent,” he claimed.
“Verona played an excellent match, they are an organized team and will give everyone a hard time.”
However, the Nerazzurri grew into the game, and especially after the introduction of substitutes, they fared better in the second half when they managed to haul back the deficit and take all three points, thanks to Correa in particular.
“Congratulations must be made to the whole team,” Inzaghi stated. “To Tucu, to Lautaro who had had an injury problem that had slowed him down.
“Everyone was good, then it was clear that for Tucu, a debut with two goals in 10 minutes, it was a magnificent evening, for him and for all the fans who cheered us on for all 90 minutes, and it is right to dedicate the victory to them.”
Inzaghi urged fans to put the early season results in perspective. “Only two games have been played. We knew that Verona could create problems for us and they created them especially in the second half of the first half.”
“We were good at organising ourselves well and played an excellent second half,” he said.
He continued, “We will have fifteen days to work, unfortunately I will have few players but we will do our best with the players who will remain at Pinetina.”
“Unfortunately, the calendar has said the second and third matches will be away, and we will prepare well for Sampdoria,” he added.
The coach closed by talking about the Champions League group stage draw, stating that Inter’s group is “Not very easy as a group. We know Real, we know Shakhtar who have a very good Italian coach, and Sheriff played four preliminary rounds and they too will want to do their part.”
