Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi has hailed his team’s “four perfect months” to start the Serie A season.
The coach spoke in a press conference after the Nerazzurri beat Udinese 4-0, as reported by FCInterNews.
Inter got a statement win against Udinese yesterday.
The Nerazzurri didn’t just take three points against the Friulani. They demonstrated their superiority for virtually the entire ninety minutes.
This was a necessary result and performance for Inter to respond to Juventus having beaten Napoli earlier in the weekend.
And it was also a match which gave continuity to the kind of season that Inter have already been having.
With 37 goals scored and just seven conceded, and 38 points taken out of a possible 45, it would not be too far off base to say that Inter have been the outstanding team in Serie A so far.
But as Inzaghi is keen to warn, the judgments can change quickly.
Inter Coach Inzaghi Hails “Four Perfect Months” To Start Season
“These first four months of the season have been perfect,” Inzaghi said.
“We’ve already achieved two objectives for the club and for the fans,” the coach noted. He named “Qualification for the Champions League round of sixteen and for the Club World Cup.”
“We know what they represent for this club.”
“Let’s keep going in this direction,” Inzaghi stressed. “We know that the judgments can change quickly. So let’s keep it up.”
“Seeing the team play like this is a huge source of satisfaction for me and for my incredible staff,” Inzaghi said of the emphatic win over Udinese.
“But at the same time we have to understand that, the first time that we draw a match, the judgments on us will change in an instant.”
“That’s football,” the Inter coach mused. “It doesn’t just apply to me and Inter.”
“There’s still a long path ahead of us. We will certainly experience difficulties, as we already have. But that’s why we have to work even harder and better.”
As far as whether he expects a title race with Juventus until the end of the season, Inzaghi replied “No, because it’s still just that fifteenth match of the season.”
“At the moment it’s between Juve and Inter,” the coach noted. “But the journey will be long.”
“Any team can get a string of wins, and then it opens right back up.”
Inzaghi said that “Milan, Napoli, and the two Rome teams are very strong, high-quality sides. They’ve had some setbacks, but they’re capable of catching up.”
