Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi feels that he has the complete faith of his coach Simone Inzaghi.
The 24-year-old spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews after yesterday evening’s Champions League match against Real Sociedad.
Midfielder Frattesi started yesterday evening’s match against La Real.
And the former Sassuolo midfielder saw out the entire ninety minutes.
Frattesi hadn’t played against Udinese over the weekend, either from the start or from the bench. But that always looked to be an indication that Nerazzurri coach Inzaghi was keeping the 24-year-old fresh for the match against La Real.
And so it proved to be the case.
Frattesi was the only midfielder who Inzaghi kept on the pitch for the entirety of the match.
This will have certainly been a boost in confidence for Frattesi.
The Italian international has not played much of a role in Inter’s Serie A campaign so far. Rather, the likes of Nicolo Barella and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been well ahead of him in the pecking order.
But in the Champions League, Frattesi has shone.
The 24-year-old assisted Lautaro Martinez’s late equalizer all the way back in Inter’s opener away to La Real.
Then he won a decisive penalty against Red Bull Salzburg. Frattesi also scored in Inter’s memorable 3-3 comeback draw against Benfica.
Davide Frattesi Feels Complete Faith Of Simone Inzaghi
“I know that the coach has complete faith in me,” Frattesi said. “And he shows it in his actions.”
“I’m as calm as I was the first day I was here. There are absolutely no problems.”
“We tried to start better than in the away match,” Frattesi said of yesterday’s match.
“But we knew it would be difficult.”
“They’re a team with characteristics we know, and they’re also doing well in the Spanish league.”
“We tried to top the group,” Frattesi said. “But we didn’t succeed.
“We’ll fight it out with our heads held high against whoever we come up against.”
And Frattesi also denied that facing Lazio will be a match of particular importance for him due to his Roman heritage.
“For me, it will be a match like all the others.”
“They’re all important matches,” the former Sassuolo midfielder stressed.
