Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello feels that Inter are current in a rut that will force them to reassess themselves, but that it will not last forever.
Speaking to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the former coach gave the view that the Nerazzurri have no permanently dropped off but are just in a difficult moment.
Inter followed up dropped points against Scudetto rivals AC Milan and Napoli and a disappointing 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Champions League with a shock defeat at the hands of Sassuolo in Serie A over the weekend.
The loss to the Neroverdi created a sense that the team could be in crisis and are at risk of jeopardizing their Scudetto hopes if they do not arrest the slide soon.
However, Capello does not feel that the Nerazzurri are in a long-term rut, and that once key players return and they get back on their feet they will soon look like their usual selves.
“Inter play a particular style of football which Inzaghi has in mind, and they do it with the players they have available, they’ve done a good job so far,” he said.
“Now they are in a moment of reflection,” he continued, “when certain players are missing you can pay for the errors and the differences in quality between certain players in the squad.”
