Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi was not happy with his team’s performance during the first half against Sassuolo over the weekend, and he made the players aware of it.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Italian tactician “raised his voice” and made clear to the team that he expected a change in approach following a first half in which they had let themselves get outplayed.
Inzaghi had seen his team start fairly brightly before they seemed to lose their foothold in the game, with Alessio Dionisi’s Neroverdi side looking to be in control for much of the last thirty minutes of the half.
The Nerazzurri boss did not immediately turn to his bench to change the game at the beginning of the second half, but he made the squad understand that he was not happy with how the first half had went after an initial fifteen minutes.
After ten minutes in which he did not adequately see the changes that he wanted from the team on the pitch, the coach decided to make alterations through substitutions, with his quadruple-substitution proving to be the game-changer as the coach looks to get the team playing his way more and more.
