Inter coach Simone Inzgahi got his tactics wrong in yesterday evening’s 0-0 draw with Genoa according to Italian media, particularly the decision to start Alexis Sanchez.
The coach received mediocre scores across the board in the player ratings for the match in Italian media, as highlighted by L’Interista, and the decision to leave out Lautaro Martinez for Sanchez summed up a team that looked out of ideas.
Inter had most of the ball at the Marassi but they failed to create any really telling chances to score, with Inzaghi’s mean not looking prepared enough to play with pace and precision through a very well-organized Genoa team.
The performance of Sanchez was emblematic of these struggles, with the Chilean looking unsure of where to be in order to impact the game as his teammates laboured to gain any territory with their passing moves.
Inzaghi was blamed for the decision to start the 33-year-old and for the overall indifferent performance, receiving a 5.5/10 score from the Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport, and 5/10 scores from the Corriere dello Sport, TuttoMercatoWeb, and L’Interista.
