Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi believes that the depth in the squad available to him is a key strength to his Nerazzurri team.

Speaking to Inter TV after his side’s 2-1 win over Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium yesterday, the coach gave his immediate reaction to the eventful encounter and emphasized the importance of the entire squad.

Inter did not start at their best against Alessio Dionisi’s men, falling a goal behind to a Neroverdi performance which could well have brought even more goals.

However, Inzaghi made the decision to change four players ten minutes into the second half, a significant statement on what he felt was needed in terms of impact on the pitch, as well as an indication that he trusts even the players who don’t start to do what is necessary to win games.

In the end the Nerazzurri came back to win the match, with the performance of the substitutes proving vital.

“Every coach needs them,” Inzaghi said substitutions. “Even before the changes we had approached the game well, but I decided to make four changes at the same time.”

He went on, “I am lucky enough to have a strong squad and I have to try to exploit it. It also happened in Florence and against Atalanta. Now with the five changes allowed, the starters are no longer eleven, but many more.”

The coach concluded, “I take away the response and the desire that the team has to stay in the game and win it.

“In Italy there are no easy games, we come up against excellent teams like Sassuolo and maybe you have half a day to rest after very long away matches. But this is football, I take away a great feeling of pride.”
