Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi is happy to be in Japan for the team’s preseason tour.

Speaking to Japanese news outlet PRTimes, via FCInterNews, the 47-year-old announced his hope that the Nerazzurri can put on some good performances in front of their Japanese audiences as they prepare for the season to come.

Inter’s preseason preparations are now in full swing.

The Nerazzurri’s squad has already been back in training for well over a week. They’ve also played a couple of preseason friendly matches against lower-tier opposition behind closed doors as the players have begun to get their match-fitness back up to the necessary levels.

However, now Inter will take the next step.

The team have arrived in Japan, where they’ll play a couple more serious friendlies.

The Nerazzurri will face Paris Saint-Germain and Al-Nassr in friendly matches. This will both give the players a chance to really starting feeling their way back to fitness, and give Japanese fans a rare opportunity to see Inter play on home soil.

Inter’s squad have taken their vacations after last season’s gruelling climax. And some new arrivals have also come in during the summer transfer window.

Everyone will be taking this chance to start getting fully ready for the season that lies ahead.

“Inter have visited Japan before, but this will be our first tour in Japan in a long while,” he added.

“So we’ll do our best to put on great performances in front of everyone in the Inter family who comes out to the stadiums.”
