Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi enjoyed his team’s rampant win over Salernitana, but insists that the Scudetto isn’t in the bag just yet.

The Nerazzurri boss orchestrated a dominant 4-0 victory on Friday night. Marcus Thuram, Lautaro Martinez, Denzel Dumfries and Marko Arnautovic were all on target.

The Beneamata have now opened a 10-point gap on top of the Serie A standings.

Inzaghi was pleased with his players’ display. He was certain that they wouldn’t take the opponent lightly, even though the Granata lie at the bottom of the table.

“My players were very good tonight. We approached this match in the best possible way,” noted the Inter coach in his post-match interview with Sky Sport Italia via FcInterNews.

“Salernitana had created problems for many teams and we knew we had to approach the match well. The boys were very good, but we still have a long way to go.

“I was quite calm and confident. We recovered well after the trip to Roma. The boys trained in the best way possible.

“I could have made more changes but the boys knew the importance of the match for the championship and the standings.”

The 47-year-old warns his teammates against complacency, as they must not lose sight before officially securing the Scudetto title.

“There’s no such thing as safety in football. We have to stay focused even when during our sleep.

“The journey is very long. As a player, I won a Scudetto [with Lazio] that seemed lost after the year before my teammates lost one that seemed won. The journey is still very long.”

The coach also acknowledged the major importance of attacking from the flanks in his tactical setup.

“It’s true. The two external centre-backs help us a lot in this regard but the team has acquired great maturity.

“We know how to occupy the pitch and remain well-balanced. The boys played very well in a very important match before a Champions League clash. We had a great approach.”

Inzaghi insists that his team is taking the campaign step by step and planning for every match on its own.

“We’re only focused on the next game. This has been our approach since the final three months of the previous campaign.

“We want to get to the end of every competition, there are three months to go and the journey is very long.

“We have to move forward while knowing that there are two teams behind us who won’t give up until the end.

“Concentration must always be very high. We reached February 16th playing every four or five days and it was easy for us.

“Now a busy schedule awaits us and I need to get answers from everyone in the squad.”

Simone Inzaghi Praises UCL Opponets Atletico Madrid

The Inter manager had words of praise for his next opponents Atletico Madrid ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash.

He also refers to their coach Diego Simeone (his former Lazio teammate) as a friend.

“Atletico are a great team who have a great coach who is a friend of mine.

“This is a team that hasn’t lost at home in 25 games. In their last two outings, they had 30 shots without scoring. I saw both matches and the results didn’t reflect the action.

“It is a difficult opponent that we will face in the best way, knowing that they have quality and quantity. We have four days to prepare for it.”

Finally, Inzaghi reassured that Davide Frattesi has recovered, but he opted not to risk his tonight.

“He has recovered. he had his first group session yesterday. Tonight I thought it was better for him to rest even though he really wanted to play.

“Given how the match went, I made other choices. But he will be fully recovered by Tuesday.”
