Italian journalist Matteo Marani believes that this season’s Inter team play with more attacking intent than they have in the past couple seasons under Antonio Conte.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Marani gave his thoughts on the style shown by Simone Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri team, emphasizing that they look ruthless in finding space and punishing teams.
Conte’s Inter team had no lack of firepower in it, but as has been the case throughout the former Juventus, Italy, and Chelsea boss’s career, was also characterized by a strong focus on solidity at the back.
In the first few matches played under his successor Inzaghi, a shift has been observable towards looking to move the ball forward with regularity and carve out a high number of scoring chances.
It remains to be seen if the former Lazio manager can have the level of success that his predecessor had, coming in to take charge of the defending Italian champions, but he appears to want his team to be proactive in how they attack now that the pressure is on them.
“Inter have dispelled many doubts that emerged in the summer,” Marani praised the Nerazzurri. “Simone Inzaghi is working well, he has resumed the work culture inherited from the last season and is shaping it as he wants. Now it is a more offensive Inter, which when it finds space it is ruthless as we have seen against Bologna.”
