Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has made a very positive impact with the team this season and much of this owes to his work with individual players.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who highlight the 45-year-old’s “enhancing” of many of the players already in the squad and how this has improved the team’s overall game.
Inzaghi inherited a strong squad and some key additions during the summer, despite the losses of Achraf Hakimi, Romelu Lukaku, and Christian Eriksen.
Most of the squad were already Scudetto-winners from last season, but almost across the board the former Lazio coach has found another level from his players.
In attack Lautaro Martinez is continuing his development as a centre-forward nicely, while in midfield Nicolo Barella has become more creative and complete and Marcelo Brozovic has become more influential than ever.
Alessandro Bastoni has become more aggressively attacking and the likes of Denzel Dumfries, Hakan Calhanoglu, and Edin Dzeko have all seen patches of some of their best form through the season.
Perhaps the player who has experienced the most impressive upturn in form, however, has been wing-back Ivan Perisic.
The 32-year-old had already been an important contributor to last season’s Scudetto, having also been well-established at the club since joining from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015.
This campaign, however, the Croat has gotten even better on both sides of ball, continuing the work of Antonio Conte transitioning him from a winger to a two-way wide player nicely.
Inzaghi has seen his team play very impressive football as a unit throughout the season, but this would not be possible were it not for the individual form that he has gotten so many of his players playing in.
