Italian journalist Ivan Zazzroni believes that coach Simone Inzaghi has brought a sense of life and appetite back to Inter’s style of football.

Writing in his column in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Zazzaroni gave his view on the coach’s influence on the team this season.

Inzaghi arrived with the difficult task of replacing Scudetto-winning coach Antonio Conte, and doing so while coping with the departures of several key players from the team during the summer.

The 46-year-old had built a significant reputation for himself as head coach of Lazio, and had shown that he had the basic template of football to follow in Conte’s footsteps, but it was far from clear how things would pan out for him.

Inzaghi guided the Nerazzurri to the round of sixteen in the Champions League and Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana trophies, while he has also secured top four in the league with the possibility of playing for the title still at hand.

Zazzaroni writes that |I imagined that Inter would be in the running until the end, despite the fact that I considered Lukaku, Hakimi, and above all Conte to be difficult to replace.”

“By building the team around Brozovic, Perisic, and in alternating attacking pairs, Inzaghi was able to restore the appetite for the game and give the players the freedom to express themselves,” he adds.
