Former Torino defender Massimo Brambati feels that Inter coach Simone Inzaghi should not act like the Nerazzurri haven’t disappointed so far in their season.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster TMW Radio, as reported by FCInter1908, the former defender suggested that the Inter coach needs to admit that the team haven’t been having a great season and stop pretending that they are on track.

Inzaghi has been keen to stress that, even though the Nerazzurri are quite a ways behind Napoli, they are still very much in the running for top four in the league.

This could be a factor which mitigates the feeling that the team are in crisis, but arguably still constitutes a significant underperformance relative to the calibre of the squad.

Moreover, there is a lot of work that the Nerazzurri will need to do to secure top four at the end of the season, and even this is hardly guaranteed.

“It’s amazing to me how far Inter are from the top, and I’m amazed that Inzaghi hasn’t seemed to recognize it yet,” Brambati said.

“He says ‘We’re right there’, but where?”

“He doesn’t just have to aim for fourth place, he needs to strive to win it all.”

“With five losses and twenty goals conceded in the league so far, they’ve been a disappointment,” he argued.
