Italian journalist Fabrizio Biasin believes that Inter’s loss to Udinese in Serie A earlier this afternoon could hardly have been handled worse by head coach Simone Inzaghi.
Reacting to the match in a tweet after the final whistle, Biasin named numerous bad choices and deficiencies from the coach, and suggested that there is real pessimism around the team now.
Inzaghi made a bold decision to make a double substitution after just over half an hour, and was not shy to make changes in the second half of the match, living up to his reputation for being very proactive with his changes.
However, nothing that the coach did seemed to work as the Nerazzurri were out-thought, outfought, and outplayed to slump to a 3-1 defeat about which they will have few complaints, and Biasin believes that the coach will have to be the first person to be held accountable for the result.
“The double substitution after half an hour (why?), Correa on for Dzeko (who’d been their best attacker), the decision to remove the best Nerazzurri player (Acerbi), an embarrassing lack of fitness,” Biasin lifts, “today was a disaster in game management, even before the result. Very bad.”
Il doppio cambio alla mezz’ora (perché?), #Correa per #Dzeko (il più bravo davanti), la decisione di togliere il migliore tra i nerazzurri (#Acerbi), una condizione fisica imbarazzante: oggi è stato un disastro di gestione, prima ancora che di gioco.
