Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has won praise for his substitutions in Saturday evening’s Serie A win over Torino.

As L’Interista highlight, the player ratings for the match across the match were very positive towards the 47-year-old’s, with the proactiveness and instant impact of his changes in the second half the aspect that the media were most positive about.

Inzaghi has never been a coach who is afraid to turn to his bench.

Very few coaches have been as enthusiastic about using all five substitutions available to them since the rule change.

And yesterday, the former Lazio coach gave a good demonstration of how effective making changes can be.

Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Praised For Use Of His Bench Vs Torino

After the first half, Inter had hardly looked to be dominant against Torino.

The Nerazzurri were losing some key battles on the flanks and in midfield. The Granata were starting to pull them out of shape.

Therefore, Inzaghi used his halftime team talk to set his team up a bit differently.

But beyond that, the coach was clearly also thinking about some of the changes he would make in terms of personnel.

First of all, there were the changes in wide areas.

Off came Federico Dimarco and Matteo Darmian. And replacing them were Carlos Augusto and Denzel Dumfries.

It is not at all rare to see Inzaghi make these kinds of substitutions on the flanks. Even seeing the coach change both wingbacks at the same time is frequently a tactic that the 47-year-old will use.

And these changes worked just as Inzaghi wanted them to.

Augusto looked far more defensively solid on the left than Dimarco had.

And Dumfries had a major attacking impact, setting up Marcus Thuram for the Nerazzurri’s opener.

Meanwhile, Davide Frattesi gave Inter a new impetus in the midfield battle, replacing Nicolo Barella.
