“There are many hidden dangers in the game with Cagliari,” warned the coach in his press conference.

“The Sardinians aren’t picking up many points, but their performances have been good, they play impressive football and have a lot of quality. They certainly don’t deserve their current status in the table.

“We expect them to adapt their tactical system to mirror ours and it’s going to be a real test of our maturity as a team.”

Asked about his team’s objectives in the current season, Inzaghi responded:

“Our objective has always been to qualify for the Champions League. It’s very tough, as the teams at the top are marching on at a remarkable pace. We’ve dropped a few points along the way, but we’re up there now and don’t want to ease off. We know there’s a lot more work to be done.”

The 44-year-old added:

“We do have a different mentality compared to the first half of the season,” agreed the coach. “Over the last month, since the Christmas break, we’ve had almost a complete squad available. It’s also natural that good results boost morale.”

“I met with the President, I am very positive about the situation and so is he. We’re at a very advanced stage, I am happy and everyone knows what this club and jersey represent for me.”
