Inter defender Danilo D’Ambrosio feels that his team are playing a very proactive style of football but also backing it up with good organization.
Speaking to InterTV after yesterday’s 5-0 win over Salernitana in Serie A the 33-year-old emphasized the importance of hard work and tactical discipline to the Nerazzurri’s recent attacking strength.
D’Ambrosio started the away match in Salerno, which turned out to be the Nerazzurri’s sixth consecutive win in Serie A, continuing their perfect run since the return from the November international break.
Inter have won their last three matches by scorelines of 3-0, 4-0, and 5-0 respectively, and the team are really beginning to show that they can control matches and lay on the chances against nearly any opposition.
Ad D’Ambrosio made clear, however, this is not a spontaneous or improvised quality but rather the result of careful organization on the pitch instilled in training.
“As I always say, simple things are the most difficult,” he stated. “It appeared to be an easy match but we had to work to make it so.”
“We played. at our own pace,” he added, “we had great possession, we could have finished it off within the first 25 minutes, we managed the game as we had intended.”
Of playing in Salerno the 33-year-old stated that “I grew up here and I have wonderful memories of the place and the club.”
“There are still some doctors and physiotherapists from when I played here,” he went on, “It was a great pleasure to say hello to them but when you go out onto the pitch you fight for the shirt you wear.”
On departed midfielder Christian Eriksen the defender said that “He left his mark from a sporting point of view, but above all from a personal point of view, we all have great memories of him.”
“We have heard from him in our chats, we are waiting for him at San Siro to see him again,” he added.
Of playing in this current Nerazzurri team D’Ambrosio stated that “It’s a pleasure because it’s attacking but organized football.”
“There is always support, we play a game of movement, space, speed, play, pressure,” he explained.
He went on that “We always play with a full understanding of the facts. Our game is beautiful, and when you win it is even more beautiful.”
