Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi is happy with how his forwards performed in this evening’s Serie A win over Salernitana.
The coach spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, after the 4-0 victory, praising the match-winner Lautaro Martinez but also Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Thuram.
Inter got back on track following the disappointment of midweek defeat at the hands of Sassuolo.
The Nerazzurri put four goals past Salernitana without reply. Beyond the three points, the win was important for the boost in confidence that it can give Inzaghi’s team.
The victory came courtesy of a whopping four goals from Inter captain Lautaro Martinez.
Whilst the Argentine only came on during the second half of the match, that was enough time for him to score a whopping four goals.
For his part, Inzaghi obviously recognized the performance of his captain. But the coach is also happy with how the other forwards did prior to his arrival.
Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Happy With Lautaro, Sanchez & Thuram
Of Martinez, Inzaghi said that “He was brilliant. But so did Sanchez and Thuram also do exceptional jobs.”
The coach said regarding the Nerazzurri’s match-winner that “He’s out captain. He’s a leader.”
“Now he can’t let up, he has to be consistent, which he always has been for me.”
Inzaghi called the victory over Salernitana a “Very important win.”
“In the first half we had to score considering all the opportunities we created, despite also conceding some.”
“Then in the second half we did well,” the coach continued. “We knew it wouldn’t be easy, because Salernitana at home can cause problems for you.”
Of the end-to-end first half, Inzaghi said that “We had to do better out of possession.”
He continued that “We expected Salernitana to play with a different shape. But we had to do better.”
“I have many experienced players who know how to play in these matches,” the coach added. “We created a lot but needed to do better out of possession. But then in the second half we fixed the issues.”
And Inzaghi also remarked that “I said before played Monza, what we want to do this year is to play as many matches as possible.”
“But we know how difficult that is, it’s a huge expenditure of energy every three days, and then having to return late at night and having little time to prepare for the next matches.”
