Nerazzurri Legend Walter Zenga: “Conte Had Inter Playing By Mechanisms, Inzaghi Has Given The Team Freedom”

Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga feels that the Nerazzurri have shifted in style to become more free under head coach Simone Inzaghi.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, the 61-year-old gave his thoughts on the stylistic shift that has taken place under the former Lazio coach compared to Antonio Conte’s team last season.

Inter were a well-oiled unit under Conte last season, with the players rarely looked like they had any doubt of where there next pass or run was on the way to an emphatic Scudetto win.

Replacing the former Juventus, Italy, and Chelsea boss’s influence was always going to be a tough task for any coach, and Inzaghi has seemingly decided not to try and directly replicate his style at all.

The 45-year-old’s Nerazzurri team is built around some different key players than that of his predecessor, but also shows completely different stylistic ideas on the pitch.

“Antonio gave the team specific mechanisms to play by,” Zenga explained the difference, “Simone has given them freedom. It is not that one is better than the other, they are two different interpretations that both give results.”
