Inter Debutant Pavard: “Lot of Aggression in Italian Football”

France international Benjamin Pavard made his Inter debut in the 1-1 draw against Real Sociedad, as Simone Inzaghi pitted him from the start in the back three alongside Stefan De Vrij and Alessandro Bastoni. Although Pavard didn’t get to the best of starts, he eventually grew into the match and ultimately retrieved the ball that culminated in Lautaro Martinez’s 87th-minute equalizer.

Nonetheless, Pavard expressed his satisfaction to Inter TV (via Tuttomercatoweb)  at making his maiden Nerazzurri start, having been being left on the bench for four straight Serie A games.

“In Italian football there is a lot of aggression, a lot of tactics. I’m very happy to have been able to play as a starter, it was a very difficult match but in the end we brought home a good draw. Now we have to recover, the next match arrives immediately and therefore we need to recover our energy. We suffered but it was important not to have lost. Another difficult match awaits us, and we will have to give everything on Sunday.”

Pavard appeared in a full match for the first time since playing 45 minutes in the 3-0 hammering endured by Bayern Munich at the hands of RB Leipzig in the DFL Supercup.

Inzaghi is expected to continue his rotation of the squad as fixtures pile up across all fronts, including the UEFA Euro Qualifying campaigns.
