Former Nerazzurri defender Fabio Galante feels that Simone Inzaghi needs to use past mistakes as a lesson at Inter Milan.

Galante spoke to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

Inter head into this evening’s Serie A match against Torino knowing that they have a lot of momentum to regain after the way that the last couple of weeks before the international brea went.

After winning five matches in a row, the Nerazzurri’s form dipped significantly.

Four points from nine is hardly the form of prospective Serie A champions. And it saw AC Milan overtake Inter decisively at the top of the table as they continued to find ways to win.

Moreover, it’s not simply the fact that Inter dropped points against Sassuolo and Bologna that is cause for alarm.

Rather, the Nerazzurri’s performances were as much of a red flag as the results were.

It was not as though Inter put in a dire display in either match. But there was a certain lack of ruthlessness, and some costly switch-offs.

This has become a bit of a theme for Inter under Inzaghi. So the coach certainly has to find ways to get past it.

Galante: Inzaghi Must Use Previous Inter Mistakes As A Lesson

Galante noted that “The international break is always a variable. But Toro away is never easy, and Inter will know that all too well.”

“If there was an easy solution, a top coach like Inzaghi would have already found it,” he suggested.

“We should just learn from the past mistakes,” the former defender argued.

“But the mistakes that they made against Sassuolo and Bologna mean that there’s a risk of falling back into old habits.”

“The problem, however, is only mental,” Galante argued. “Inter’s worst enemy is… Inter.”

“Unfortunately, the points they’ve already dropped risk having an impact in the long run.”

“I don’t think there will be one team that gets free and clear like Napoli last season. I think it will come down all the way to the final sprint.”

And Galante also praised Inter defender Benjamin Pavard.

“With Pavard, Inter have taken a step up in terms international quality,” he argued. “And then with players like that, training also improves.”
