Inter Milan assistant coach Massimilano Farris feels that the entire team always celebrates when a player gets on the scoresheet.
The Nerazzurri assistant coach spoke to InterTV, via FCInterNews, after his team secured a 4-2 Serie A win away to Roma this evening.
Inter beat Roma this evening, their seventh win in seven matches played in 2024.
Naturally, there was very much a team performance behind the victory.
And there were four different goalscorers.
First, defender Francesco Acerbi found the back of the net with a looping header from a corner. It was the second goal of the season from the former Lazio defender.
Then, after Roma responded with two goals of their own, striker Marcus Thuram equalized.
The Frenchman had been the scorer of Inter’s winning goal in the reverse fixture. And he once again proved to be decisive against the Giallorossi.
The third goal was an own goal from Roma defender Angelino. The Spaniard had little choice but to turn the ball into his own net under pressure from Thuram.
And then, defender Alessandro Bastoni rounded off the victory with a goal in stoppage time.
It was a big goal for the 24-year-old on a personal level. Bastoni has never been a regular goalscorer, and this was his first goal for Inter this season.
And the response from the team was a clear one. All the players ran to celebrate with Bastoni, even those who were on the bench at the time he scored the goal.
Inter Assistant Coach Farris: The Entire Team Celebrates When Someone Scores
Inter assistant coach Farris said after the match that goals from a variety of sources are “Very important.”
He went on that “Lautaro is our top scorer. But Thuram scores the goals. The defenders score them.”
“Arnautovic and Sanchez also did well when they came onto the pitch.”
“When someone scores, all his teammates celebrate with him,” Farris noted. “Even the ones on the bench.”
“In my opinion, that will help us to keep going forward at our best.”
And of the win over Roma, Farris said that “It would make a great advertisement for Italian football abroad.”
“The pace never dropped,” he continued. “The intensity was high until the end.”
“It’s very important to know how to manage the moments within matches,” Farris said.
