Juventus Legend Claudio Marchisio: “Inter Milan Coach Inzaghi Should Worry More About Dumfries & Darmian Defending & Less About Hand Ball Offences”
Legendary former Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio feels that Inter coach Simone Inzaghi should be concentrating on his own team’s failings rather than blaming yesterday evening’s Derby d’Italia loss purely on refereeing.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio, via FCInterNews, Marchisio suggested that the Nerazzurri coach should focus on the defensive switch-off that allowed Filip Kostic to score for the Bianconeri, and not just on the handball in the buildup.
During his postmatch remarks yesterday evening, Inzaghi said little about the team’s performance on the pitch, as he largely defended his team’s display.
Instead, the 46-year-old made his feelings clear about what he felt was a blatant handball in the buildup to the Bianconeri’s first-half goal which proved to be the match-winner.
From Marchisio’s perspective, there were many factors that led to the goal, and to the Nerazzurri’s loss as a whole, and the former Juventus midfielder does not feel that the coach should simply blame the refereeing and stop there.
“It’s important to look at how much time and space that Kostic has to control the ball and line up his shot,” the former midfielder argued.
“For me, Inzaghi should be concentrating less on the handball, and more on the poor defending by Dumfries and Darmian to allow the goal,” he added.
