Legendary former AC Milan manager Arrigo Sacchi believes that Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is a top coach and that his work is bringing success to the Nerazzurri.
Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the former Rossoneri and Italy boss gave his thoughts on the current Inter manager, and suggested that the Nerazzurri could be even more attacking.
Inter endured a summer of upheaval on the pitch and on the bench, with the departures of Antonio Conte, Achraf Hakimi, and Romelu Lukaku setting the task to Inzaghi to rebuild a team in his image following his summer switch from Lazio.
The 45-year-old had proven himself to be an adept tactician in his five seasons in charge of the Bianconeri, but his ambitions would have to be changed to suit a new challenge with the Nerazzurri.
Sacchi suggests that the Nerazzurri boss has shown a high level, although he also expects a more attacking mentality from the team.
“Inzaghi is good,” the former Milan boss said, “he has maintained the backbone of last season, they have not changed form.
“A formidable striker like Lukaku has left, but Inter scores goals anyway. And this means that it is the style of play that produces the goals, even before the players.”
He went on, “I expect more courage from the Nerazzurri. I would not like to see them always having numerical superiority in the defensive phase and outnumbered when they attack.
“It is a legacy of the Italian tradition, but if we want to progress we must risk something more, have the audacity to accept the one-on-one as happens in Europe.”
