Italian journalist Riccardo Trevisani feels that Simone Inzaghi’s Inter Milan play like Brazil, whilst Max Allegri’s Juventus are like Costa Rica.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, via FCInter1908, Trevisani aimed a barb at the Bianconeri and their coach contrasting their style of play with the Nerazzurri.

The past couple of weeks have seen Inter open up a real lead in the Serie A table.

The Nerazzurri are now nine points ahead of their rivals in the table. And they have a game in hand to boot.

But before a dramatic decline in form, Juventus had been keeping up with Inter every step of the way.

The Bianconeri managed to get results seemingly every weekend, by hook or by crook.

That is certainly the way of their coach, Allegri. The veteran former AC Milan and Cagliari coach has become strongly associated with teams that prioritize the result completely, and care little about style of play.

But that does not mean that Juventus have not faced some criticism for that tendency.

Particularly in contrast to the more fluid, high-tempo brand of football that Inter play.

Trevisani: Inter Like Brazil, Juventus Like Costa Rica

Journalist Trevisani highlighted Inzaghi’s work improving players.

“When Dimarco started playing for Inter, he had just come from Verona. Nobody wanted him.”

He continued, “No one wanted Acerbi.”

“They signed Calhanoglu from Milan on a free transfer.”

Trevisani argued that “Now we see Inter as a colossus. But they’re a colossus built by the work of the club and their coach.”

“The Juventus coach at the moment has built very little,” he hit out.

“They’re a team that play bad football.”

Trevisani jibed that “Inzaghi and Allegri arrived three years ago at Inter and Juve. Now one seems like Brazil in terms of their style of play, the other like Costa Rica.”
