Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi feels that squad rotation has to be an “extra weapon” for the Nerazzurri this season.

The coach spoke to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri’s Champions League group stage win over Red Bull Salzburg yesterday evening.

Inter coach Inzaghi made a total of five changes to the starting eleven across the last two matches.

To face Salzburg, the coach made changes in midfield, in defense, in attack, and on the flanks compared to the team that had beaten Torino in Serie A over the weekend.

This is nothing new for Inzaghi.

The 47-year-old former Lazio coach has always shown a willingness to use all the players at his disposal. This has meant both making changes to the lineup from match to match, and also making changes from the bench during matches.

And from the coach’s perspective, this is necessary to get the best out of the season.

Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi Stresses Importance Of Squad Rotation

“I’m happy with everyone,” Inzaghi said after the win over Salzburg.

“Both with the players who played from the start and with those who came off the bench.”

“That’s our strength,” the coach noted. “Squad rotation has to be an extra weapon for us, not something less.”

“We have to be good at measuring our energy.”

As far as the next match against Salzburg, Inzaghi noted that “First we will have two tough matches in Serie A.”

“Then we’ll go to Austria to play our game.”

“We will have to face Salzburg with a lot of concentration in the return match,” the Nerazzurri coach made perfectly clear.

And the coach also talked about the preparations for Sunday’s match against Roma.

“We have 24 hours more than the usual 72 hours,” he noted. “And we’ll try to recover as much energy as possible.”
