Italian journalist Sandro Piccinini believes that Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is doing well in his role since taking over during the summer.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia following the Nerazzurri’s 2-0 win over Spezia yesterday evening, Piccinini emphasized the job done by Inzaghi to guide the team to their recent form.
Inzaghi had a difficult task in the summer when he took over as head coach from Antonio Conte, with the former Juventus, Italy, and Chelsea manager having guided the Nerazzurri to their first Scudetto in eleven years and imposed his style of play on the team.
However, the former Lazio boss has coped with the pressure well, and the Nerazzurri are beginning to clearly display his ideas while they pick up important results in both Serie A and the Champions League.
Piccinini believes that the coach is evolving the team and living up to expectations at the Giuseppe Meazza.
“Inter started the season as Italian champions,” he stated, “but with the idea that they were headed downwards.”
“Conte no longer believed in the project, Hakimi and Lukaku left,” the journalist added.
“Then, however, they had a very intelligent transfer window,” Piccinini continued. “The owners are rewarding the directors with renewals.”
He concluded that “The team dropped a few points that could have discouraged them, but instead they have grown and now things are going very well. Inzaghi has done a great job.”
