Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi feels that patience is necessary for the Nerazzurri’s squad to gel with new signings.

Speaking to InterTV after the Nerazzurri’s Serie A win over Cagliari, via FCInterNews, the coach gave his thoughts on all the new players he has to work with this campaign.

Inter have certainly had an eventful summer transfer window.

The Nerazzurri have lost twelve players from last season’s senior squad.

Replacing them have been eleven new signings, plus a returning Stefano Sensi.

Clearly, it will take time for the team to come together after so much upheaval in the squad.

So far, it has mostly been players already in the squad like Dumfries who have played the most. Meanwhile, the new arrivals have taken more time to bed in and find their feet.

But the early signs are that the new arrivals can fit in well and replace the players who’ve left.

The Nerazzurri squad has a blend of veterans and players with room to grow that is already starting to make itself apparent early on in the season.

Inter Milan Coach Simone Inzaghi Expects Time Needed For New Signings To Gel

“Clearly, this season we’ve brought in some new players. So it will take some time for the chemistry to gel,” Inzaghi said.

“The guys are working hard,” he continued. “We have to look ahead to our next match well. We’ll keep going at our best.”

Of the win over Cagliari, Inzaghi said that “The guys did very well.”

“I asked them to play a serious, focused match,” the coach continued.

“They immediately started in the best way possible against a team who had done very well in their first match of the season. I’m very happy with what I saw.”

Of the performances of striker Marcus Thuram and Lautaro Martinez, Inzaghi said that “They were good.”

“Arnautovic also did well when he came on,” the coach continued.

“They had an excellent match, now they have to keep it up.”

“We’re waiting for Sanchez, he’s just arrived and will be available for Sunday [against Fiorentina],” Inzaghi said. “He’s been working very well in training.”

As for the scorer of Inter’s first goal Denzel Dumfries, the Inter coach said that “He was very good.”

“Denzel and Dimarco have started the past couple matches. Then Carlos Augusto and Cuadrado have come on and done well.”

“I will alternate them a lot,” Inzaghi said of his wingbacks. “Because we have a lot of matches from now until the end of the season. So I hope to have everyone in good condition.”
