Simone Inzaghi has explained how pleased he is with the quality of his squad ahead of the match against Atalanta on Saturday evening, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.

Whilst speaking to Inter TV, rather than at a traditional press conference, Simone Inzaghi highlighted the importance of the victory over Fiorentina on Tuesday at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

“I think Tuesday’s success was important, despite the painful first half-hour we remained calm.

“I saw a great reaction. It was important for the team that we won at a difficult place, tomorrow we will have another equally challenging game.”

When asked if he will make many changes, Simone Inzaghi kept his cards close to his chest, saying: “Today there is an important training session, I will see the general conditions of the team, then I will calmly decide on the formation.”

Inter have scored 18 goals in the first five Serie A fixtures which is an excellent record which no other team in the division can boast. The next highest scorers are Napoli with 14.

Simone Inzaghi did not hold back in his praise for the team, saying: “I’m pleased, I try to involve everyone. I’m lucky enough to have excellent players who are always ready.

“There are fewer and fewer starters with five substitutions, all of them give excellent signals.

“We try to prepare many ways to win, I was lucky enough to find an already well-trained team, which gave me great availability. We are trying to create ideas to make the team evolve.”

Inter are facing a very good side in Atalanta and the boss is very much aware of that, as he made clear by saying: “An excellent team who don’t give you anything, we will have to be good at doing the same. Hunger and nastiness will make the difference.”

Inter have an extremely quick turnaround as they travel to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday night. Simone Inzaghi appears to be taking things one game at a time.

“It is difficult for me to think about it, we are focused on Atalanta, a great team. Playing every two days it is difficult to make long-term predictions.”
