Legendary former Parma, Juventus, and Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro believes that Simone Inzaghi has improved Inter on a tactical level.
Speaking to Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Cannavaro hailed the freedom with which the Nerazzurri now play under the former Lazio coach.
Inzaghi arrived with expectations being that he would look to find a balance between continuing the work left by Antonio Conte and also adding his own ideas to the team.
So far this campaign the Nerazzurri have looked to be more proactive and expansive, pressing higher up the pitch and playing with more possession of the ball than they had done last time around.
Cannavaro is a fan of what he’s seen from Inzaghi’s Inter, and feels that he has made them into a formidable unit with few flaws.
He credits the coach for getting the Nerazzurri right back into the driver’s seat in the Scudetto race.
“They’re really complete,” he said of this Inter team, “and I’m happy for Simone Inzaghi, there were too many reservations about him, he has never been considered a coach for a top team but he has everything needed to succeed.”
“He knows how to work with players, he makes them feel happy,” Cannavaro went on, “this year they are freer to express themselves and on the pitch it is noticeable.”
