Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has put his stamp on the team in the form of making important substitutions when his team have looked to need a change.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who highlight how the changes made by the former Lazio coach have impacted games so far this season.

Inzaghi decided to take advantage of the five substitutions available in Serie A this season in the second half of the Nerazzurri’s clash with Sassuolo over the weekend, making four substitutions at once early in the second half, which proved to drastically alter his team’s fortunes from a losing position.

As the Corriere point out, this is not totally unprecedented, with former Sampdoria boss Claudio Ranieri having done so twice against Inter and against Torino.

However, apart from this, Inzaghi’s move was something unheard-of in Serie A, and showed that when he was unhappy with his team’s response early in the second half against the Neroverdi, he was not hesitant to make a bold statement and turn to his bench to alter the complexion of the match.

The Corriere highlight that sometimes waiting to make substitutions has paid off, as in the case of Matteo Darmian’s equalizer against Fiorentina coming right as the 31-year-old looked close to being taken off the pitch, with Edin Dzeko then scoring the winner having also looked close to coming off.

On the other hand, Joaquin Correa’s match-winning entrance away to Hellas Verona was another illustration of how impactful Inzaghi’s changes can be, while the entrances of Federico Dimarco, Matias Vecino, and Denzel Dumfries were vital to Dzeko’s equalizer against Atalanta.
