Ex-Inter Defender Francesco Colonnese: “Too Much Criticism Aimed At Inter For Sampdoria Draw”

Former Inter defender Francesco Colonnese believes that the criticism of his former club was too harsh following their 2-2 draw against Sampdoria at the Marassi over the weekend.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Tuttomercatoweb.com, the 50-year-old stated that he thought the approach by the Nerazzurri and by coach Simone Inzaghi was good and that they did not deserve to be critiqued too severely following the result in Sunday’s Serie A clash.

Inter’s perfect start to the end came to an end with their trip to Genoa, in which they failed to take three points away despite having twice taken the lead only to get pegged back by Roberto D’Aversa’s men.

The result was a wobble which knocks the Nerazzurri behind the teams in Serie A with three wins from three, and it invited criticism within the media.

However, for Colonnese, the performance and result at the Marassi were not a major cause for alarm and he still feels positive about his former club.

“In Italy we criticize the coach,” Colonnese said, “but Inzaghi is excellent. He has arrived in Milan and revolutionized Inter, he deservedly won two games, then came this draw against an excellent team.”

The former defender went on, “Inter had the opportunities to win it in Genoa, but then they were left with ten men because of Sensi’s injury.

“I hear too much criticism, you need calm and fairness – you have to let work Inzaghi, for me the Nerazzurri will go far.”
