Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has given a hint that he could decide to make some squad rotations against Sassuolo in Serie A tomorrow.
The coach spoke to InterTV ahead of the match, via FCInterNews, emphasizing the confidence that he has in his entire squad.
Inter have just a couple days between matches against Empoli and Sassuolo in Serie A.
This is hardly an optimal amount of time to rest and recovery.
Therefore, Nerazzurri coach Inzaghi may well want to give some of his key players the night off – at least from the start.
Inzaghi has already changed up his team in the last couple of matches that Inter have played. The coach has made changes to the lineup for matches against Real Sociedad in the Champions League and then Empoli in Serie A.
And, he has hinted, it could be the same story tomorrow.
Inzaghi has not given any indications about which players in particular may be in or out of the starting eleven to face Sassuolo.
But as far as the fact that there could be rotation in and of itself, he has made that clear.
Inzaghi Hints At Rotation For Inter Squad To Face Sassuolo
“This is the fourth match in ten days for us,” Inzaghi noted. “And many players have also had commitments with their national teams. So many of them have had long travel times.”
“But I’m lucky to have a competitive squad at my disposal,” the coach continued.
“This afternoon’s training session is still to come, and then I’ll make my decisions.”
Of tomorrow’s opposition Sassuolo, Inzaghi observed that “They’re coming off the back of a great match against Juventus, which they won.”
“They have an excellent coach,” the Inter boss said of his Neroverdi opposite number Alessio Dionisi. “I know him.”
“He makes his team very well-organized,” he added.
“We have to show our quality as well as determination in order to play the kind of match we want to.”
Inzaghi then noted that “We create a lot of chances. That’s a fact.”
“That’s been the case for a long time, including last season.”
“We’re working a lot on being more clinical when we get to the opposition penalty areas,” Inzaghi added. “Not just the forwards, the entire team.”
And of Inter’s summer of upheaval, Inzaghi noted that “We’ve made a lot of changes.”
“And the players who were already here at Inter are also top players,” he continued. “They’ve done very well to make the new arrivals, both young and old, understand how to fit into the environment here at Inter.”
“From my perspective, everyone has made themselves available in every way they can,” Inzaghi added.
“It’s been that way from July 13, everyone has worked hard and shown great determination.”
