Inter assistant coach Massimiliano Farris has said that Inter would have signed with blood at the start of the season if it meant winning two trophies, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.
Speaking during an interview with Radio Sportiva for the Coach Experience 2022, via FCInternews, Simone Inzaghi’s assistant made it clear that based on last summer’s transfer activity the whole team would have been more than happy to win two trophies.
“It’s a super positive season in our opinion. At the beginning there were problems and defections, but we managed to compact the group and play very good football, and in the end we brought home two trophies and fought for the Scudetto until the last day.
“Probably last summer we would have signed with blood. There remains some regret because for a while we were possible architects of our destiny, but it is all experience for the future.”
Talking about recovering after such an intense season, Massimiliano Farris praised the incredible work ethic of Simone Inzaghi throughout the campaign.
“You need a lot of rest after a season like this, it’s good to take a break to regenerate physically and mentally.
“I don’t think Simone has even taken a week off, he is a hyper-perfectionist, he will have dedicated a few hours to his family and then completely immersed himself in his work.”
This has been Massimiliano Farris’ first season as a coach with Inter as he joined at the same time as Simone Inzaghi as part of his staff. He is an Inter fan which made it all the more special.
“There is a special feeling, I am Milanese and an Inter fan, I found myself a protagonist in my team. The reason for the greatest pride was taking my father to the San Siro for the match against Real Madrid in the Champions League.”
Talking about the support of the fans this season, the coach empathised with how it must feel to see AC Milan celebrating the Scudetto.
“The Inter fans recognised the work we did, they understood that we did everything we could. Surely there is disappointment to see Milan celebrate, but they have shown great maturity and attachment to the colours, they will be the push to start again next season.”
As for taking the crown back from the Rossoneri next season, the coach has confidence in the club.
“Will we try again next year? We’re there. I read what the club and the owners say, they intend to continue competing for the top places, we’ll try to be there.”
