Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi is very happy with how all of Marcus Thuram, Marko Arnautovic, and Yann Bisseck played against Lecce.
The Nerazzurri coach praised the trio whilst speaking in a press conference after the match, as reported by FCInterNews.
Inter kept their momentum going in the Serie A title race with their victory over Lecce yesterday evening.
It was another clean sheet. And two more goals, courtesy of defender Bisseck for his first ever goal in a Nerazzurri shirt, and captain-on-the-night Nicolo Barella.
And it was a real team performance by Inter.
The Nerazzurri’s midfield controlled the tempo and pushed the ball forward.
The back three of Bisseck, Alessandro Bastroni, and Francesco Acerbi contributed to the front-foot approach.
And in attack, Thuram and Arnautovic led the line, even despite lacking a goal.
From the perspective of Inter coach Inzaghi, there was little to complain about from any of his players. It was another solid day at the office, and also gave some rarely-used players a chance to shine.
Inzaghi Praises Thuram, Arnautovic & Bisseck For Performances Vs Lecce
Inzaghi responded to the suggestion that Thuram wasn’t at his best by saying that “From my perspective, he didn’t underperform.”
“He did what he had to do,” the Inter coach said of the Frenchman.
“We wanted to get the mezzala players forward more, so we needed him to stay in that position with Arnautovic.”
“He did very well,” Inzaghi said of Thuram.
“Then when I brought Sanchez in I wanted to have both of them stay on because I was very satisfied with their performances.”
And Inzaghi also praised striker Arnautovic. “He did very well,” the coach said of the former Bologna striker.
“Already in the first half he was looking for the goal. But Falcone did very well to stop him.”
“He still needs more time to fit into our mechanisms of play, because he hasn’t played much with Thuram,” the coach observed.
“But it looked like they had been playing together all through their lives.”
And Inzaghi also praised defender Yann Bisseck. “He’s working silently in training,” the coach said of the German.
“He’s like a sponge, absorbing all the advice he gets from the coaching staff and from his teammates.”
“He started ahead of Pavard, who is a top-class player,” Inzaghi noted. “And he deserves all of this.”
