Legendary former Inter defender Beppe Bergomi feels that Inter coach Simone Inzaghi should continue to be trusted by the club, as long as there’s still a feeling from everyone involved that they can work and turn a bad situation around.
Speaking to Italian news outlet SerieANews.com, the former defender stressed that the club should continue to place the faith they already have in the coach at least until the relationship between he and the players and the fans seems to break down decisively.
Inzaghi was chosen to be the successor to Antonio Conte on the Inter bench last summer, and then again at the start of this summer the club reaffirmed their choice of the 46-year-old by extending his contract.
Clearly things have not gone as either Inter or Inzaghi have expected across the first few weeks of the current season, but Bergomi feels that it is nowhere near the point where sacking the former Lazio coach would be the right course of action.
“When a club extends his contract, it shows that they clearly believe in the coach, in the staff, and in their work,” he said. “We must absolutely trust them because changing at this stage would be difficult in my opinion.”
“But I still think that there are four components,” he continued, “the club, the coach, the players, and the fans. If they all pull in the same direction and there’s enthusiasm, then it is right to keep going.”
“This does not mean that you can win a Scudetto automatically,” he added, “but you’re a team. And when you are you can face anyone.”
