Legendary Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar heaps praise on head coach Simone Inzaghi for his match management against RB Salzburg.

The Nerazzurri completed the double over the Austrian champions in back-to-back Champions League fixtures.

The Italian giants have now secured qualification to the competition’s Round of 16 with two matches to spare after collecting 10 points from four fixtures.

Last night, Inzaghi opted for squad rotation. Therefore, he started the match with star players Lautaro Martinez, Nicolo Barella and Federico Dimarco on the bench.

Neither side was able to score in the first half, but Inzaghi’s substitutions eventually made the difference.

Barella’s shot struck the hand of an opponent inside the box, so the match official pointed towards the spot.

Inter captain Martinez converted the penalty kick which proved to be the solitary goal of the encounter.

Therefore, Julio Cesar credits Inzaghi for his smart management and decisive changes.

“Inzaghi changed the style of play with two or three substitutions,” noted the Nerazzurri treble hero during his appearance on Amazon Prime via FcInter1908.

“Lautaro has shown why he is an elemental player for Inter. The same goes for Barella.

“Inter cannot depend only on the two of them. Dimarco also makes a difference.

The 44-year-old also reserved some words of praise for Inter goalkeeper Yann Sommer. The Swiss remained alert to the danger.

“The goalkeeper must never be distracted. Sommer pulled off a difficult save.

“He didn’t have much to do during the match but he must be ready when his services are required. He certainly did so against Salzburg.”
