Former Inter defender Marco Andreolli feels that current Nerazzurri coach Simone Inzaghi has given the team a style of play that allows every player to contribute across all phases of play.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN, the 35-year-old hailed the coach’s ability to use all of the players at his disposal in a proactive tactical approach.
The Nerazzurri have been an effective possession team this campaign, and have shown that they can rely on a variety of options all over the pitch rather than using a few key players to create danger.
In both wide and centrals, and through defenders and midfielders as well as strikers, Inter have proven apt at playing passing combinations or unlocking opponents on the dribble all through the campaign.
Andreolli is impressed by this aspect of the Nerazzurri’s play, and feels that it is to the great credit of the coach that every player’s strengths are used.
“The important thing is that the team always finds the goal in one way or another,” he explained. “The main thing is to always create opportunities.”
He went on that “Inzaghi’s game gets the best out of everyone and everyone feels like a key part of the team. Everyone gets involved in the attack and scores goals, this is a great quality that Inter have.”
“They want to play proactive football,” he said. “Denzel Dumfries has grown a lot, Darmian’s injury gave him the opportunity to show what he can do and find some consistency.”
“He has grown and has already proved himself to be important,” the former defender continued, “He’s already grown a lot and I hope that he can keep on.”
“There’s no doubt that Inter have had players of great quality in wide areas in recent seasons,” he added. “Many great players have made history and won trophies, and I hope that Denzel can join them.”
Andreolli further explained that “When Maicon arrived he had to work a lot and then he grew exponentially, the same thing is happening with Denzel and had also happened with Hakimi.”
