Nerazzurri Legend Walter Zenga: “Win Over Juventus Was A Turning Point For Inter”

Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga feels that the team have decisively turned things around because of their 1-0 win away to Juventus on returning from the international break.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Zenga identified the win away in Turin as the moment that galvanized the Nerazzurri and allowed them to get back to their confident best in recent matches.

Inter desperately needed to get back to winning ways on their return from the international break given the poor form they had shown in the weeks leading up to the break, and they could hardly have faced a tougher match to do it in.

The three points were not easy to secure at the Allianz Arena, with the team needing to produce a backs-to-the-wall display to win 1-0 on the night.

However, in the subsequent wins over the likes of Hellas Verona and Spezia they have appeared unlocked and rekindled, and Zenga credits the win over the Bianconeri with getting them to this point.

“It was obvious that the match against Juve was a turning point for the rest of the season,” he said. “If Juve had won, Inter would have almost been out of the fight for the Scudetto.”

“I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Inter a lot recently,” he added, “even against Verona they dominated and also did very well against Spezia.”

Of midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, he said that “Brozovic gives a lot of balance to the team, in terms of numbers and finishing maybe he’s not up there, but he’s absolutely crucial.”

And on who he would start in attack in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg coming up against AC Milan, Zenga said that “On Tuesday I would go with Lautaro and Dzeko.”
