Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi absolutely must resolve his team’s struggles for consistency over the second half of the season, or else risk missing out on vital qualification for the Champions League.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who argue that the coach’s task from here on out is to find ways to get the team playing with continuity rather than lurching between strong performances and mediocre ones.

When Inter have been at their best this season, there could be few criticisms directed at either the team or the coach.

However, the sense remains very much that the Nerazzurri have not been at their best often enough.

The Corriere lays this squarely at the feet of the coach.

The verdict of the newspaper after nineteen matches played in Serie A is that Inzaghi has not done enough to keep things fresh and approach the challenge of a gruelling, packed fixture list.

If the coach can find ways to get the team at high levels over long periods rather than burning themselves out with their best performances, then everything is there for the taking.

However, if things continue as they have been, there is a very real risk of the calamity that would be missing out on the Champions League for next season.
