Inter needs someone who can introduce some young players in the first team, provided that we are broken.
Ok, but when coach is constantly using players like Correa and 5G without any results, this should be an issue too?Issue in Italy is everyone focuses just on the result. If coach uses youngsters and don't accumulate wins (in a big club) it becomes a huge issue.
I'm talking about Conte credentials in relation to Juric discussion. Conte had the credentials, the credibility in front of the team to do what he wanted the team to do, ie. order them to play like dogs. Suffering, defending, endless running.First of all, last season was one of adjustment from Conte ball to Inzaghi ball. This season squad have fully adjusted to Inzaghi tactics. And even last season there was a lot of criticism, even from Inter players, that we conceded too many goals. It's just a much bigger issue this season, also due to the loss of Perisic.
And yes. He has no clue. His defensive record speaks for itself.
2016/17 Lazio: 51 goals conceded
2017/18 Lazio: 49 goals conceded
2018/19 Lazio: 46 goals conceded
2019/20 Lazio: 42 goals conceded
2020/21 Lazio: 55 goals conceded
2022/23 Inter: 24 goals conceded in 17 matches
Unless something drastically changes it will be another 40+ goals conceded season for an Inzaghi team. 2021/22 looks like an outlier in Inzaghi's career.
I don't know why you keep bringing up Conte credentials. Conte isn't at Inter anymore. Club can't afford someone with Conte credentials. Inzaghi didn't have Conte credentials when he was hired in the first place.
Bar isn't Conte anymore. It's Inzaghi. For starters we just need someone who can fix the defense. The fact that Inter have a worse defensive record than Lecce and Empoli is simply unacceptable. And it isn't solely a matter of players.
Inzaghi's type of football requires a very strong attack and quality squad depth. We don't have money for either. And that's why for me he isn't the right guy to move forward past this season.
Management adopted the cheapest approach, we need to remember that aspect.I have zero regrets over passing on De Zerbi for Inzaghi. De Zerbi is another coach with bad defensive setup who's also totally unproven at top level. I would stay away. Also we didn't exactly pass on him. He rushed to agree with Shakhtar even before Conte leaving.
My regret for 2021 summer is passing on Sarri. You simply go for the best coach available even if it means a squad overhaul. But as usual our management adopted a conservative approach and played it safe.
He gave like 5 min to him, and this is actually one of the problems with Inzaghi. He has fixed time and place for those young players in his head, regardless of what happens on the pitch. Doesn't matter if Correa plays as shit 10.matches in the row. At the end, he will be always ahead of Carboni, who will get his 5.min here and there. Same with Asllani. For Inzaghi he is registra and he will get his 15-20 min some of the games. Doesn't matter that 5G is pure crap and adds nothing, he still will play if Barella or somebody else is unavailable, because Asllani is spare registra in Inzaghi 's mind.I really appreciate Inzaghi as the coach, and I see him addressing the problems and improving the gameplay with the given resources and adapting to the situation (e.g. Broz injured.)
He even gave Carboni some play time last game.
