Former Inter coach Corrado Orrico believes that Inter have not gotten the best out of coach Simone Inzaghi due to separating him from Lazio Sporting Direct Igli Tare.
Speaking to Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, the former coach suggested that without his right-hand man from the Biancocelesti, the coach is not quite at home, and that the Nerazzurri should have also brought Tare with him.
Inzaghi established a positive reputation for himself over five successful seasons in charge at Lazio, and this is what inspired Inter to sign the coach as the successor to Antonio Conte last summer.
The 45-year-old had help in the Italian capital in the form of Tare in particular who worked to build him a squad suitable to his footballing ideas, whilst at Inter he has also had the support of the club’s directors.
Even with what Inter’s hierarchy have provided Inzaghi on a sporting level, Orrico still feels that it’s not the same as the chemistry that the coach enjoyed with Tare.
“Simone is an excellent person and has an elegant attitude like Pioli which is certainly useful, but sometimes you also need to beat your fists on the table,” he said of the coach.
“At Lazio there was an Ibra-like figure in the form of Tare,” he said, comparing Tare to AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic, “he had a function just like Ibra at Milan.”
He gave the view that “When Inter signed Inzaghi they also had to sign Tare because otherwise it’s an incomplete package.”
