Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has made clear with his remarks yesterday that there is still support within the club for coach Simone Inzaghi, but also that this support is contingent on fixing the issues that are appearing.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper La Repubblica, who suggest that the CEO was sending a clear message both that the club still backs the coach and also that their support will not last forever if the situation doesn’t improve.

The very face that Marotta decided to speak to Sky Sport Italia yesterday to give an update on the situation within the club and reiterate support for Inzaghi was a clear indication that there is a lot of pressure in the current moment.

There is discontent within the club given the sequence of poor results early on in the campaign, and Marotta hinted at this as he called for greater “shrewdness” and seemed to indicate that there is a clear belief that the coach could be doing better.

However, the CEO also characterized Inzaghi’s squad rotations against Bayern Munich as showing “courage,” showing that even when the coach takes controversial decisions which do not pay off, he still has the backing of the club who trust him to make good decisions.
