According to a story in today’s Italian print media, the Inter administration was deeply disappointed following the setback over AC Milan on Saturday evening.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, there was a lot of disappointment in more than just the dressing room following the 3-2 loss to AC Milan.
The Nerazzurri gained the lead in the first half but failed to put pressure on the opposition. They equalised through Rafael Leao, but then broke apart drastically in the second half, with Olivier Giroud scoring and Rafael Leao adding another.
Edin Dzeko scored to get Inter back into the game, but they were unable to find an equaliser or winner.
That caused serious disappointment in the hierarchy of the club as the start to the season has been below par. It does not reflect well on Simone Inzaghi.
But does that mean his job is in trouble?
Despite Saturday’s Serie A derby defeat to AC Milan, Inter’s board of directors remains confident in coach Simone Inzaghi.
According to today’s print edition of Turin-based publication Tuttosport, the Nerazzurri directors have made it clear to Inzaghi that the team cannot afford to continue without a response after losing to the Rossoneri.
A number of faults that have been apparent since preseason surfaced in Inter’s 3-2 loss to Milan over the weekend, including a lack of compactness between the lines, a lack of attention, and some tactical murkiness.
The directors were present at training today, as they are usually after a game, and they watched as Inzaghi led the session and began work on the pressing difficulties that were highlighted in Saturday’s setback.
During the team lunch, the directors made it clear that they still believe the coach is the best person to guide the squad out of its current problems, but that they want to see a reaction right away.
Inter Milan Fans could be in trouble!
Italian football officials are investigating alleged anti-Semitic chants by Juventus and Inter Milan fans.
The chants, which allegedly contained allusions to Jews, were heard during Juventus’ 1-1 draw with Fiorentina and Inter’s 3-2 loss to AC Milan in the Milan derby on Saturday.
“We have been Brothers of the World since 1908,” Inter tweeted late Monday. “It is a commitment we have always made. It is in our history, it is who we are. Brothers Universally United #NoToDiscrimination.”
The federation also announced it’s investigating Lazio coach Maurizio Sarri for insulting the referee and the entire referees’ corps during a 2-1 home loss to Napoli.
