Pioli and Inzaghi Put Their Foot Down on Two Signings

Stefano Pioli and Simone Inzaghi aren’t known to be particularly demanding on the transfer market, but their respective managements surely take their opinions into serious consideration. The two coaches made their voices heard about two acquisitions in particular, Sportitalia relays.

The Rossoneri gaffer insisted on signing Tijjani Reijnders. Among the possible options, he considered the Dutchman the most adequate to his ideas and new scheme. They have switched from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3 this summer. He has provided three excellent performances in a row to open the season. He has dished an assist so far.

While Pioli pushed for a precise midfielder amid his tactical evolution, Inzaghi stressed the importance of purchasing Benjamin Pavard since Inter had the opportunity to do so. The coach identified him as the ideal addition to raise the level of their defense. They have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the early going.

The Nerazzurri, which for a while leaned toward an offensive investment, took a hard pivot and paid €30M for the 2018 World champion. They kept at it even though Bayern Munich forced them to wait.

Our Take on Pioli and Inzaghi

Managers who aren’t boisterous are often those whose demands are heard. While Reijnders always seemed like a perfect fit, it’s noteworthy that the coach contributed to Inter significantly changing their strategy midway through the window.
