Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi must get the balance right with his team’s mentality in guiding the Nerazzurri out of a delicate moment in which they’ve been out of form.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who argue that the coach must work to keep his players on track psychologically in view of the challenging matches to come.
Inter have not looked their usual selves in recent matches, particularly in attack, and part of this seems to be explainable by a psychological downturn among the strikers.
Lautaro Martinez, in particular, looks to have been frustrated and tentative rather than confidently putting in his best performances.
Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez has continued to start regularly, but the Chilean has not really been able to make an impact on the pitch the way that he has when he has been used off of the bench.
According to Tuttosport, Inzaghi should consider relying more on the experienced Dzeko, who even though he has had better and worse moments of form from a goalscoring perspective throughout his career, is more consistent with his other contributions to the team.
With the Bosnian injecting a sense of calm into the team’s attack, the newspaper argues, the coach’s task is to get his other strikers, and the rest of his team in general, more assured of themselves in the final third.
