Former Inter midfielder Alessandro Scanziani believes that Inter have started to play with a more ruthless edge in recent weeks under head coach Simone Inzaghi.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, the 68-year-old hailed the Nerazzurri hailed the club for finding a winning groove under their coach, and also spoke about the positive impact of summer signings.
Earlier in the season, Inter looked to be a strong attacking unit, but they also had trouble really controlling games and seeing out leads, causing them to drop points.
Over the past few weeks, the team have looked more comfortable with their task at trying to win over ninety minutes, and they have won their past five matches across all competitions in the process.
Scanziani believes that this is evidence that the Nerazzurri are coming into their own under former Lazio head coach Inzaghi and learning to win playing his brand of football.
“I would say that the first half in particular was good,” he said of the Nerazzurri’s display against Roma yesterday evening, “with an excellent result and good finishing.”
He went on that “I don’t know if it’s more due to Inter’s efforts, or because of Roma who didn’t react well.”
“They went to to Rome and killed the game off in the first half,” he emphasized. “I don’t think you can take a 3-0 win for granted. Inter have gotten the winning mentality back again this year under Inzaghi, this match made that clear.”
He added that “Inzaghi manages to work withthe players that the club has given him.”
“Inter sold great players for a lot of money, they signed Dzeko for a lot less and he has looked like a player reborn. Credit to the club for their sales and signings.”
