Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni feels that the team has become hard for opponents to deal with due to their versatility this season.
Speaking toItalian broadcaster DAZN after this evening’s 1-0 win over Torino, the 22-year-old credited coach Simone Inzaghi for making the team unpredictable in their approach.
Inter had to work hard for their win against the Granata this evening, spending spells of the match in possession of the ball but also having to dig in and attack on the counter at times.
What feature of Inter’s play that remained visible throughout the match was the aggressive positioning of Bastoni, who looked to be proactive and to initiate attacks.
Bastoni’s runs forward have become almost customary this campaign, and this evening was no exception as the defender exemplified the Nerazzurri’s overall unpredictable brand of football.
Ivan Juric’s men gave a good account of themselves at the San Siro but in the end lost the tactical battle with this versatile Inter team who made it seven wins in a row in Serie A.
“I’m a defender,” Bastoni stated, “we haven’t conceded a goal for many days after a rough start. We worked on it a lot and we are defending very well.”
He went on that “It is Inzaghi’s influence that gives us unpredictability that we might have missed a little last season.”
“We come onto the pitch,” he continued, “we enjoy ourselves and entertain the fans. But the most important thing is that we won and we have had a perfect month.”
Of the Scudetto win last season he stated that “It certainly gives us an awareness that last year we were the top site, and gives us the motivation to try to repeat it this year.”
And on the team’s packed schedule, Bastoni stated that “We are perfectly happy to play every three days, it has become normal. I repeat, we’re enjoying ourselves, we are happy, the new signings have integrated into the team well.”
