Simone Inzaghi alleviated the pressure with a precious win over Barcelona Tuesday, but he had already received a vote of confidence from CEO Giuseppe Marotta prior to the Champions League clash. The veteran executive talked to SportMediaset.
“The coach is confirmed notwithstanding the next results. We must rediscover our certainties, which are key. It would be easy to say that wins fix issues. Those arrive if we play up to our potential, reduce mistake and perform with great motivations and strong sense of belonging. We have to accept the criticism with humbleness. The fans have always stayed close to us.”
On top of confirming Inzaghi, Marotta showed his support for Milan Skriniar, who hasn’t had a great start to the season.
“The transfer market buzz is a bother. The players are professionals, but they can be affected by this kind of pressure. It would be better to shorten the windows, but this is a strange season with the World Cup in the middle of it. He’s a foundational piece for our team.”
The official weighed in on Samir Handanovic and André Onana alternating on goal.
“The choice is completely up to the coach. The campaign is long and we have to juggle multiple competitions. I have lived through the dualism between Gianluigi Buffon and Wojciech Szczesny at Juventus. If those involved are intelligent and the manager is clear, it’s a non-issue.”
As a further confirmation that Inter didn’t seriously consider firing Inzaghi, Dejan Stankovic, one of the few credible replacements, has decided to take the Sampdoria job rather than bide time to see what the Nerazzurri would do.
