Inter Milan manager Simone Inzaghi said he is not concerned about his team’s lack of consistency in recent weeks, and expressed support for his players getting back on the right track in defending the Italian league title, starting facing Florentyna.
The reigning champions sit third in the league on 59 points ahead of their next home game against Fiorentina, four points behind local rivals Milan, and have one game postponed.
But Inter have drawn two of their last three matches in the competition against Genoa and Torino, and Inzaghi said his side deserved a lot in that period.
“I will be more concerned as a coach if the team doesn’t play well, doesn’t create chances. We have to be absolutely sure that the game goes in our favor,” he told Inter television.
There is a lot of enthusiasm and the players have trained well this week, we are looking forward to getting back to work, we need enthusiasm and caution”.
Inter were knocked out of the Champions League from the round of 16, after losing 1-2 on aggregate to Liverpool.
Inzaghi said that they should use the extra time they will have each week to better prepare for local competitions.
He added: “It definitely helps to have more time, it’s very helpful in resolving situations that didn’t go well, it allows us to work on the finer details.
He continued: “We have reached the round of 16 in the Champions League, we are still in the Italian Cup, we want to play a lot because it shows our ability to compete throughout the season.”
