Legendary former AC Milan coach Arrigo Sacchi feels that the Inter Milan attack is largely based around individual skill.
Writing in a column for Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews, the former Rossoneri coach gave his views on the Nerazzuri’s style of play.
Former Rossoneri coach Sacchi has frequently given the view that Inter play a style that’s heavily reliant on individual brilliance under Simone Inzaghi.
The coach was known to be an exponent of a heavily coordinated style of play.
And in Sacchi’s view, Inter do not use team passing moves and pressing goals to create chances. Rather, he feels, the Nerazzurri have tended to utilize the individual skill of players like Lautaro Martinez and Nicolo Barella.
This has been a persistent criticism that Sacchi has aimed at Inzaghi’s Inter.
And Sacchi has once again put it forward after Inter beat Salernitana 4-0 at the Stadio Arechi.
Sacchi: Inter Milan Attack Individualistic Rather Than Collective
Former Milan and Italy coach Sacchi writes that “Even if the result is perhaps exaggerated, Inter’s victory in Salerno is deserved.”
“Inzaghi’s team rely a lot on individual kill,” he argues. “And once the top players who were rested in view of the Champions League match against Benfica came on, we saw what they’re capable of.”
Sacchi notes that “Lautaro scored four goals. Exceptional.”
He continued that “Inter play their own football. Very different from that of Milan or Napoli.”
“But they have players capable of solving matches at any time.”
“And moreover, they have great athleticism and experience in these kinds of matches,” Sacchi adds.
Inter are currently back at the top of the Serie A table.
The Nerazzurri sit level on points with city rivals AC Milan after seven matches. Both have taken eighteen points out of a possible 21.
