Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that he has a full complement of forwards at his disposal, including Joaquin Correa.
Speaking in a press conference after his team’s 1-0 Serie A win over Napoli, via FCInterNews, the coach discussed the importance of getting the best out of all his attackers, and also praised the club for bringing in a defender the quality of Francesco Acerbi in the summer.
Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku started for Inter against Napoli, with the Bosnian proving to be the match-winning hero with his second half goal.
Meanwhile, both Correa and Lautaro Martinez came off the bench for the starting pair in attack.
Whilst Martinez’s display was a good one, with the Argentine still riding a wave of confidence following his country’s victory at the World Cup, Correa struggled to impact the game.
As far as Inzaghi is concerned, however, there is no doubt that he has four forwards of high quality to use throughout the season.
Asked about managing three top strikers, the coach replied that “I think there are four, because there’s also Correa who’s starting to get to his best, he can give us great performances.”
“The hope is for us to have everyone available, they’re intelligent players and they know that we have to play every three days.”
“My wish is to have them all at my disposal from now until the end of the season.”
“We know the road we’re on,” the coach said, “we’re Inter and we’ve won nine of our last ten [league] matches.”
“There have been a lot of questions asked about me, and about the team, as is always the case,” he continued.
“But the guys were extraordinary, we needed to play at a very high level against Napoli.”
“We were very focused, and we hardly risked conceding against a team who have been on an incredible run,” he added.
Of defender Acerbi, who put in an excellent performance to keep Napoli striker Victor Osimhen quiet, Inzaghi said that “I think the club did very well to listen to what I needed and sign him.”
And regarding the team’s impressively compact defensive shape, the coach said that “It’s fundamental for us, Skriniar and Bastoni were as focused as Acerbi.”
“We conceded little to a top-quality team, we’re Inter and we wanted to win no matter what.”
