Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has given his squad three days off at the start of the international break.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInterNews, who report that the coach has set the return to training for Wednesday.
Inter’s season will pause for a couple weeks for the international break.
The Nerazzurri’s disappointing 2-2 draw against Bologna yesterday was their final match before the break. They will return to action away to Torino on the return from the break.
A lot of Inter’s squad, naturally, will be going away for international duty during the break.
This means that Inzaghi will be without a lot of his key players for much of the next couple weeks. Then they will begin filtering back into training next week.
Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Gives Squad Three Days Off
However, there are still several players who will be working with Inzaghi in training.
The Inter coach can take the chance to work on some tactical ideas without the pressure of playing every few days.
In particular, the coach could do some experimentation in attack.
Both former Arsenal and Roma midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and former Ajax and Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen will be available in training. Neither will be part of their national team setups during the break.
Therefore, Inzaghi will get the chance to work with both as potential attacking midfield options.
The Nerazzurri are currently looking rather shorthanded in attack.
The injury to Marko Arnautovic has meant that there are only three senior strikers available. Therefore, the Inter coach could decide to switch things up a bit.
In any event, however, the team will not be straight back in training.
Inter have spent the past few weeks battling through a gruelling fixture list.
Therefore, the coach has granted his squad a few days off in which to catch their breath. The training will resume on Wednesday.
