Simone Inzaghi feels that Inter Milan virtually enjoyed a home atmosphere in their match against Udinese from the travelling fans.

The Nerazzurri coach spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, after the 2-1 Serie A win.

There was no lack of atmosphere at the Bluenergy Stadium this evening.

That was the case from the home supporters. The Udinese supporters urged their team on all match, sensing the importance of a surprise result for their team’s chances of Serie A survival.

But there were also plenty of Inter fans in attendance.

And the Nerazzurri supporters were in full voice as their team pushed for a late winner.

Therefore, the noise and intensity when Davide Frattesi scored a late winner for Inter was palpable.

Inzaghi: Inter Felt Like They Were At San Siro Vs Udinese

“This is an extraordinary group, and there’s incredible synergy between the team, the fans, and the club,” Inzaghi said.

“Today it felt like we were at the San Siro,” he continued.

“We have an extraordinary club behind us. And fans that have always given us that extra push.”

Of the win over Udinese, Inzaghi said “First of all, congratulations to Udinese.”

“They played a great match. And losing like that is always frustrating.”

“But with the organization and doggedness they showed, they can stay up,” the Inter coach predicted.

“In the first half, we made some errors. But I didn’t raise my voice with the team.”

Inzaghi noted that “Udinese played with their defensive line behind the ball. We conceded but we stayed focused, the guy s were brilliant.”

Inzaghi reflected on Inter’s disappointment in the Champions League this season. “We have to look at the path we’ve been on,” he said.

“We have to be proud of the progress we’ve made in Europe in the last three years.”

“Last season we deservedly reached the final. And then this season we went out on penalties.”

Inzaghi said that “We should have scored another goal at the San Siro. But I have no regrets, that’s the way football is.”

No Letting Up In Serie A Title Pursuit

Meanwhile, Inzaghi also made clear that the team are not going to lose their focus in their pursuit of the Serie A title.

“We’ve won 26 matches out of 31, it’s a great run.”

“But we have to stay focused. Cagliari will come into Sunday’s match off the match of a great performance.”

“We have to keep working the way we have been. But when you take this many points after 31 matches, it means there’s great harmony.”

“The substitutes give us a lot. Now we have to finish the season at our best.”

Meanwhile, Inzaghi also explained the situation with Inter’s penalty. Captain Lautaro Martinez had taken the ball immediately after the spot kick was awarded, leading to a slight suggestion that he might have wanted to take it.

“He took the ball, and then gave it to Calhanoglu,” Inzaghi said. “He always does that.”

“I was calm with Calha on the pitch,” the Inter coach.

“He was having an excellent match.”

“The misplaced pass [leading to Udinese’s goal] stuck in our craw. But he was giving everything.”

“When I had to make changes, I decided to take him off,” Inzaghi said of Calhanoglu.
