“We hope the Supercoppa Italiana will only win the start of a long cycle under Simone Inzaghi”
Inter assistant coach Massimiliano Farris hopes the side are just beginning to take off under Simone Inzaghi with their Supercoppa Italiana win over Juventus.
Speaking at a press conference after the match, as reported by FCInterNews, Inzaghi’s longtime assistant stressed that everyone hopes the coach can guide the team to great things in the future.
Inzaghi has now got his hands on his first silverware as Nerazzurri manager, justifying an excellent first half of the season by beating the Bianconeri to win the Supercoppa.
The dramatic late win capped a solid performance in line with the way Inter have played for much of the season, and it showed just how much good work has already been done since the former’s arrival. Lazio boss at the club last summer.
However, as Farris has made clear, the hope is that this is just the beginning, as the team has a lot more trophies to fight for moving forward.
“We hope this is just the beginning,” he said. “All eyes were on us from the start, but Simone did very well.”
“We brought our own ideas to the team we’ve been working on for years,” he continued, “It wasn’t easy to come into the Italian champions and succeed immediately.”
The assistant coach added that “we have turned the situation around with Juventus, and now we have to continue.”
On how the team achieved what it has already done, Farris said that “there is no secret, other than unity and team spirit.”
“To beat Juvents, you have to be confident and perform at a very high level,” he added. “Their team had great players with experience and titles, we won it at the last moment but we deserved it.”
“It doesn’t matter who is playing from the start and who comes as a substitute,” he added. “It’s a wonderful group.”
On the team’s tactics, he said that “on Sunday we won thanks to goals from two defenders, Atalanta can also score with defenders or wingers”.
“One of the secrets is the hard work and mobility of our midfielders,” he explained, “the attention from defenders who push.”
He explained that “Skriniar and Bastoni are also very good at carrying the ball forward, it’s something that can add balance and quality to our game.”
