Simone Inzaghi feels that his Inter Milan team must continue to play well, regardless of the style that they use to do so.
The Nerazzurri coach spoke to Radio Sport TV Serie A, via FCInterNews, ahead of the Supercoppa Italiana final against Napoli this evening.
Inter didn’t just beat Lazio on Friday in the Supercoppa semifinal. They did so in style.
Inzaghi’s Nerazzurri team played with flair, dominating possession of the ball and relentlessly attacking and carving out chances.
The way in which Inter got that 3-0 victory will certainly feel like a boost for the team.
But ultimately, it was just one win. It will matter little if the Nerazzurri cannot follow it up with a good performance and a victory against Napoli this evening.
Then, Inter will have to go back to Serie A, where they are now chasing Juventus in the title race, albeit with a game in hand on the Bianconeri.
And next month, Inter will return to the Champions League. They face Atletico Madrid in a tough round of sixteen tie.
Simone Inzaghi: Inter Must Keep Playing Well
“My team has to continue to play well,” Inzaghi said.
“We know that every match is different.”
The Nerazzurri coach emphasized that “Napoli are deservedly Italian champions.”
“They’ve had some stumbles in the league. But they came here to Riyadh in great form.”
Inzaghi noted that “It’s not easy to prepare for a final in just two days. But we’re doing our best to do so.”
And as far as whether he is thinking about the fact that he can become the most successful coach in the history of the Supercoppa with a win this evening, Inzaghi admitted, “Yes, I’ve thought about it.”
“Lippi and Capello are two great coaches,” the 47-year-old said of the two coaches that he could go ahead of.
“But more than the personal record I’m interested in the record for Inter,” the coach made clear. “Because it would be the third Supercoppa in a row.”
“It would be a massive goal for this team to achieve,” Inzaghi said.
