Legendary former Nerazzurri defender Ivan Cordoba feels that there is a very evident conviction in the current Inter Milan team.
The Colombian spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, giving his thoughts on the Nerazzurri’s start to the season.
Inter have enjoyed a flawless start to the season in Serie A.
The Nerazzurri have faced five matches so far, three or which have been at home and the other two away.
Inter have managed to score fourteen goals in the league so far. And they have conceded just a solitary goal.
The Nerazzurri have managed emphatic four-goal margins of victory against the likes of Fiorentina and AC Milan.
And in matches against the likes of Monza, Cagliari, and Empoli, Inter have gotten the job done.
There has been no sign of the kind of faltering in “easy” matches that had been a major issue last season.
Inter have gone on a real run of form very early on in the league. This is the kind of consistency and ruthlessness, as well as stylistic balance, that the Nerazzurri must show all season if they’re to finally get their hands on the Serie A title for the first time under coach Simone Inzaghi.
Cordoba: This Inter Milan Team Showing Greater Conviction
There has, at times, seemed to be a shift in attitude to Inter.
This newfound confidence has been particularly evident in matches against the “smaller” teams.
Inter have not rushed. But they have controlled the tempo, shown clear ideas of how they want to attack, and found the right moments to strike.
Cordoba assessed Inter’s season so far, stating that “You can see the conviction they have to look for the best result everywhere.”
“When they show this attitude, it’s very hard for the other teams,” he added. “Although we’re still only at the beginning.”
“The maturity with which Inter faced the Champions League final set a great example for everyone,” Cordoba noted.
“It’s only right for them to try for it again this season,” he added.
“Though they can’t do so at the expense of the league. The title must always be their objective.”
