I feared this game - Simone Inzaghi after victory against Bologna

Sat 18 September 2021 | 18:50

Today in the fourth round of Serie A, Inter hosted Bologna, where they beat their visitors 6-1.

It was a great performance, he is training well and frankly has settled in quicker than expected. He has quality, quantity, is eager to learn and we are more than satisfied,”

Inzaghi told DAZN.

With six goals scored by Inter against

Bologna

, it was the opposite of Wednesday's Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, when they failed to turn any of their chances into goals.

“I feared this game, because after Wednesday against Real Madrid where we deserved more, there was some concern. Fortunately, the lads took the right approach from the very beginning.

“At times you need to analyse a game without looking at the result. I congratulated the lads on how we played against Real Madrid, but then told them off because you can’t lose after creating that many chances.

“Sometimes you can have 18 shots and not score, as we did against Real Madrid, whereas this time we broke the deadlock straight away and that made it easier. Inter deserve credit, because Bologna were unbeaten so far this season in Serie A.”

In his first appearance of the season, Alexis Sanchez came on as a substitute and immediately gave the assist to

Edin Dzeko

.

“It’s the first week Sanchez has trained with the squad. Unfortunately, he had a relapse on international duty, but he is working so hard in training to get stronger and this half-hour will do him good.”

Joaquin Correa suffered a serious injury just 20 minutes after being on the pitch and is currently being treated at a local hospital.

“Correa is having tests right now. Stefano Sensi is not available at the moment, but he has so much quality that I’d like to see him play as a support striker as well as in midfield.

“I had intended to rest Dzeko today, but when we lost Correa, I couldn’t use Alexis Sanchez for 70 minutes. I managed to rest Hakan Calhanoglu and Ivan Perisic.”

Lautaro Martinez

scored a goal today, had a very good performance and showed his leadership role at Inter before signing his new contract.

I already knew he was a very good player, but once I got to work with him, I realised why he has done so well for Inter and Argentina,

” Inzaghi concluded.

“It’s a pity he didn’t score more, as he hit the crossbar today, but I have to give him some time off during a packed fixture list.”
