Former Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni feels that this current Nerazzurri side lack a sense of personality and character in big away matches.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Anch’io Lo Sport, Stamaccioni argued that this Inter do not appear to have certainty of themselves on the biggest occasions.

Inter suffered a major blow away to Juventus yesterday evening, and it was not the first time this season that the team have failed to get a result away to a direct rival.

The sense at times was that while the Nerazurri were more than capable of competing in the match technically and tactically, they were not up to the task of killing the game off at either end.

In the view of Stramaccioni, the issue with this is mental as much as anything.

The former Nerazzurri coach sees a team who still have quite a bit of growing to do in terms of character.

“Inter had an opportunity for a real coup against a Juventus who had a lot of big players out injured,” he said.

“In the first half they had a lot of chances but came up against an excellent defense who deserved the win and snapped a streak of important wins for the Nerazzurri.”

“The sense I get from outside is that this is still an Inter that lacks personality,” Stramaccioni argued.

“They’ve always lost these head-to-head clashes, it seems like there’s something going on psychologically.”

“Their sense of certainty can start to waver,” he suggested.

“And furthermore, they have the worst defense in Serie A away from home, that’s something Simone Inzaghi will certainly have to address.”
