Former Inter midfielder Borja Valero has said that the win over Spezia on Wednesday night was a signal to the rest of the championship, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the 2-0 victory, via Calciomercato.com, Borja Valero explained that Inter and the players look very confident on the pitch now and that the atmosphere at San Siro is a factor in their positive results.
“A very important signal to the rest of the championship: Inter is here, now they feel confident, the players feel strong and you can see it on the pitch. And San Siro is a factor for this team.”
Lautaro Martinez scored a penalty for Inter against Spezia and he did the same against Venezia. Some felt that Hakan Calhanoglu should have taken the one against Spezia.
“Calhanoglu wanted to take it too, but Lautaro took it very well and that’s okay.”
Inter have conceded more goals this season than they did under Antonio Conte but that has started to slow down in recent games. Borja Valero feels the team is more tactically fluid and confident now under Simone Inzaghi.
“With Conte it was more closed in the tactical system, with Inzaghi they move a little more but they have also grown a lot in terms of confidence. Last year there was Lukaku who was at the centre of the project, this year there are more protagonists.”
Inter will hope to continue their fine form by beating AS Roma on Saturday.
