Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that there is no doubt that his ambition at the Nerazzurri is to win titles.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset after his team’s 3-0 win over city rivals AC Milan in the Supercoppa Italiana, via FCInterNews, the coach stressed his ambition, and also praised his entire team for their performance and effort to get their hands on another piece of silverware.
Inzaghi has now won three trophies in just a year and a half as Inter coach.
After picking up the Supercoppa and the Coppa Italia last time around, the 46-year-old and his team have now successfully defended the first of those two trophies.
There is still the Coppa to fight for, with the Nerazzurri set for the quarterfinals of that competition at the end of this month, whilst Inzaghi and his players will be desperate to catch up to Napoli in the Serie A title race last season after missing out by just a couple points last campaign.
“Today we’re celebrating, and then we’ll think about Empoli,” the coach said after this evening’s match.
“Thanks to all my players, especially those who helped us win last season as well.”
“We’re used to having evenings like this, tonight there was something more because we were playing a derby in a final, and Inter had lost the last couple going into it.”
“I wanted to reverse this trend, and the guys did brilliantly to make sure that we succeeded.”
“I’m incredibly proud of the guys and all my staff, in the past year and a half we’ve done great things, and we will keep doing them,” the coach stated.
Of his team’s performance, Inzaghi said that “We were focused and we played a match with immense concentration and effort.”
Asked who he considered to be the man of the match, the coach replied “Everyone, from first to last.”
“Even the players who came on as substitutes,” Inzaghi stressed.
“The guys deserve this,” he continued.
“My staff and I are here to help them, we came to win trophies at a top club in Inter.”
“We’re succeeding,” he went on, “we’re not stopping and we’re going forward,” he added.
“Today it’s the right time for us to celebrate,” the coach concluded.
