Former AC Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi has said that Simone Inzaghi is doing well but Inter cannot just rely on counterattacks to win games, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Speaking during an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, the former coach explained that Inter give too much space for their opponents to attack and that means that they are overly reliant on scoring when they counterattack.

“Inzaghi is very good, but sometimes the Nerazzurri leave too much domination of the pitch to the opponent. In this way, optimism is lost, you cannot rely on counterattacks. Inter have a higher technical quality than Milan, and have even more experience, but they lack the internalization of the game.”

He went on to say that as long as they continue to not press teams and not have long periods of ball possession, Inter will not reach a high international level.

“Yes, as long as they do not press and have good ball possession they will struggle to reach international levels. But there must be no drama, Inter are on the right path: a little more conviction is needed.”

Inter lost 2-1 to Bologna on Wednesday night which now means that AC Milan are two points clear at the top and Inter do not have a game in hand anymore.

When asked if Inter have handed the title to AC Milan, Arrigo Sacchi said they have slipped up but it is not over yet. He is excited by the race though.

“Let’s say that they slipped up and that now they have to get up quickly to be ready for the final sprint. In the first half hour against Bologna the Nerazzurri played very well, but after the equaliser they changed their appearance. It’s an exciting finale.”
