Simone Inzaghi dampens everything when it comes to the Scudetto getting ever closer for Inter after the victory over Juventus: “It's just one stage in a long journey.” Then he places the joke on a “nicely rested” Sommer.
Inter take a good step towards the Scudetto, moving to +4 on Juventus – with a game in hand – after beating them 1-0 at San Siro. A narrow victory, as Allegri put it, which also doesn't do justice to the clear superiority of the Nerazzurri, who never appeared to be in difficulty for the entire match and were very close to doubling their lead several times. Simone Inzaghi can only be satisfied, but it's in the role play to dampen the enthusiasm for a tricolor that seems to be getting ever closer: ” It's an important victory, well-deserved, wanted with force, with the group, the way we prepared it, for how we played. We are very happy, but it is only one stage of a long journey .”
Simone Inzaghi's determination during Inter-Juventus
“There's still a lot to go, Juve and Milan clearly won't give up an inch, but in front of our fans, in a stadium like this that dragged us from the warm-up to the 95th minute, it's a beautiful evening, but it's just one stage of a journey still very long – continues Inzaghi, who then praises Szczesny – He kept it open, he made two incredible saves on Arnautovic and Barella, but I saw the team concentrated, we allowed a restart in 95 minutes. I think Sommer was always attentive , but he was well rested tonight… We knew we had to hold on until the end, the team was very good. These guys have been working in an exemplary way for seven months and we have to continue, as said it's just a stage .”
Simone Inzaghi is in his third season on the Inter bench
The Inter coach insists to DAZN that everything is still open for the final victory: ” There are 4 intense months to go, with many matches and we must continue in this way. We have won 18 matches out of 22 in the league, made an extraordinary journey and despite this we are 4 points behind Juventus, Milan is also still there. Two other teams are keeping a very high gear. Last year with this score Napoli was much ahead of the others .”
Simone Inzaghi warns Inter, the Super Cup is the first objective: “We want to win it again”
” Clearly the result from what we saw is very close, but it is a very important victory. An extraordinary goalkeeper kept the game open – reiterates Inzaghi with reference to Szczesny – He made the two interventions on Barella and Arnautovic, who I saw again before to come here, really impressive .”
