Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi has told his squad that he expects to immediately see more ferocity and aggression from them on the pitch, starting with tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Nerazzurri coach has stressed that the team cannot continue to play with a passive attitude in certain situations.

Inter were punished for moments in which either individual players or the team as a whole switched off in Saturday’s 3-2 derby loss to AC Milan, and Inzaghi has made clear to his players that he does not think that there was any coincidence or bad luck to this.

The coach feels that the players have not shown the kind of intensity needed all season, and that an added spring in their step is needed.

Accordingly, ferocity has been a key theme of the training sessions ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League group stage opener, as the coach demands that the team compete for every ball and in every moment of the game.
