Ex-Inter Defender Daniele Adani: “Conte’s Inter Could Hold On For 90 Minutes, Inzaghi’s Don’t Beat Strong Teams”
Former Inter defender Daniele Adani believes that Inter do not have the same capacity to manage games for ninety minutes that they did under previous coach Antonio Conte.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Rai 2, the former defender gave the view that under Simone Inzaghi the Nerazzurri struggle to contain stronger teams over the course of difficult matches.
Inter have enjoyed a positive start to the season, but against the most difficult opponents they have yet to really convince, suffering their first defeat of the campaign away to Lazio having also drawn against Atalanta and Shakhtar Donetsk, and lost at home to Real Madrid.
In these games, the Nerazzurri have shown their quality for stretches and at times appeared to have deserved more, but in each instance they have allowed too much to the opponents in vital moments.
For Adani, this is a problem which did not appear so much under Conte but which has become a notable problem under Inzaghi.
“The holding in the 90 minutes isn’t something they can do,” he stated. “Inter against strong teams, I am talking about Lazio and Atalanta in the league and the two teams in their Champions League group, Shakhtar and Real Madrid, they have not yet won.”
“They’ve started well, they’ve played good portionsof a game, they could have won all four but didn’t win any of the four. Because the game is played over ninety minutes and at Inter there is no capacity to hold on for ninety minutes against strong teams. Let’s not forget that the Nerazzurri are the team that has the Scudetto on their shirt.”
