Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi continues to cling to individual moments and errors in matches as excuses for bad results rather than recognizing broader trends, in the view of Italian media.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who criticize the coach for a failure to admit that the problems that are appearing in the team are more than isolated incidents.
After Saturday’s Serie A loss to Roma, Inzaghi defended his team’s overall performance but noted that they switched off for the two goals and paid the price.
This has become a theme for the coach, not just this season, but since he came in as Nerazzurri coach last summer.
The 46-year-old tends to defend his team’s performances on the pitch even when they lose or draw, and looks to isolated mistakes as explanations for why matches do not go their way.
The Corriere della Sera criticized Inzaghi for this tendency to simply rue “episodes” not going the team’s way, arguing that it represents a sidestepping of the deeper problems that have emerged in his team this season.
