Inzaghi: "A huge derby, compliments to the boys"


Sep 16th 2023

The words of Simone Inzaghi after the 5-1 derby win: “I am happy for our fans, now we look to the next games”

San Siro is once again Nerazzurro: Inter wins the first derby beating AC Milan 5-1 with a brace from Mkhitaryan and goals from Thuram, Calhanoglu, and Frattesi. Simone Inzaghi commented at the end of the match:

“We have had a great start to the season and played a huge derby. We were always focused, we scored in the right moments, and the players that came on from the bench did really well, so compliments to the boys. We know it is only a good beginning but I we are happy for our fans. Now we have to prepare ourselves for the next games to come. I watch my boys, and what they give in training, I was a bit worried for this game because in the first three matchdays, we had an entire week to prepare, but for this one I had various players returning to the squad 24 hours beforehand, but I knew they know how to play these kinds of games and they've shown me this once again. It makes me happy for our club, our society, and our president, we know that it is extremely important and what the derby represents. The last derbies we won brought us a trophy and the chance to play in a huge final, and this game has given us momentarily the top spot of the table, but we are only on matchday 4 and the league is long. Having depth in the squad is important now that we are about to play every three days and there will be space for everyone. Today I praised the entire team. There weren't any signs of Leao's goal, maybe we had to dribble better in the first half but it's a derby, we have players that gave a lot, physically and mentally, and the players that came on from the bench helped us greatly. Thuram? Marotta and Ausilio wanted to take him last winter, I also spoke to Deschamps who spoke well of him. He is a good lad, with a lot of qualities that immediately made us like him. Good for him and good for the Club. We changed 12 players, it's not inconsequential. Last season gave us clarity, we must go on this way, we are happy with the start but we have to be ready because we know that the challenges start now. ”
