Italian Media Highlights How Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Must Learn From Antonio Conte’s Inter Defensively

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi can take lessons from how his predecessor Antonio Conte made adjustments to make his team more defensively solid over the course of last season.

Inter have not started off the season looking like a strong defensive unit, with seven goals conceded in six games far from their record last season when they conceded less than a goal a game over the full campaign.

However, today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera highlights the fact that the Nerazzurri also looked defensively vulnerable during the first few matches of last season before they tightened up at the back, and in fact had conceded more goals after six matches than they have this campaign.

Simone Inzaghi looks to have implemented a different style of play than the one which Antonio Conte had settled on last season, focused more on possession and attacking intent.

The result is that the Nerazzurri have gotten off to a flying start in front of goal while also conceding more than a goal per game on average.

This looks to be a stylistic shift from the team overseen by Conte, but in truth last season’s Inter side began in a similar vein to this season’s, playing with a strong attacking intent but also showing defensive frailties, having conceded ten goals by this point in the season.

However, Conte made changes to the style of play which did not significantly hinder the team going forward but strengthened their defensive solidity.

The Corriere suggests that the current coach will have to find a way to make similar adjustments if he wishes for his style of play to bring trophies rather than only entertainment for the spectator.
