Former Inter defender Daniele Adani feels that the Nerazzurri looked to be playing with a freer mindset and enjoying their football more in their 5-0 win over Salernitana on Friday.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio 2, the former defender gave the view that the Nerazzurri looked to be getting back into their groove with the win.
Inter had not always looked to have the same rhythm and intensity in possession in recent goalless draws against the likes of Genoa and AC Milan, almost appearing to have been weighed down by the expectation that they needed to find a goal.
Once their duck was broken with the first goal against Salernitana, it seemed as though all over the pitch the players looked less nervous.
It remains to be seen if this carries through in the Nerazzurri’s next few matches, especially with tough away trips to Liverpool and Torino on the horizon, but Adani finds it to be a positive sign.
“Inter are back to scoring and enjoying themselves,” he said, “they’re finding their rhythm and enthusiasm again.”
He went on that “Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez are back to scoring, but let’s be clear – the Nerazzurri have sixty goals and would still have had the best attack even without those five goals.”
“It was only necessary to regain enthusiasm and a bit of rhythm,” he continued. “It was a bad patch of form that Inter did well to get past with the skill of their finishers.”
