Simone Inzaghi hails Dzeko: “The first name I mentioned to Inter"

Ademola Lookman opened up the scoresheet for La Dea in the 25th minute from the penalty spot 11 minutes before Edin Dzeko scored the equalizer for Inter. Another goal from the Bosnian and an own goal from Palomino sealed Inter a comfortable away victory.

Speaking in his post-match interview,

Simone Inzaghi

was happy to celebrate another victory against a "big club" this season. He told

Sky Sports


“It is very important to reach the World Cup break coming off six wins in the last seven Serie A games.

“It is always tough here in Bergamo, we had the wrong approach and conceded the opener on our error, but then did well to turn it around in the second half.

“We had four more points at this stage last season, but that was without the very strong Champions League group. Napoli is currently setting a pace that is tough to match, we just have to continue our path.

“There’s a long way to go yet this season, there are 23 games remaining and we have 45 days now to work on recovering injured players and fine-tuning the details.”

“This long break is a new thing for everyone. We will have five or six days in Malta with two friendlies, then the players should return from the World Cup. We hope they will be as late as possible, as that means they have progressed in the competition.”


Edin Dzeko

and Romelu Lukaku, the Italian coach added:

“Last year we had to do without Romelu Lukaku and the first name I mentioned to the club was Dzeko.

“He did so well last season, then he knew that with Lukaku’s return there would be less playing time, but despite being 36, he is playing constantly and only getting better.”
