Stramaccioni: "Inter must take control of games"

APPIANO GENTILE
“We need to start taking control of games again.” Andrea
Stramaccioni spoke in a confident, determined manner as he looked ahead
to tomorrow’s match at the Meazza against Chievo, scheduled to kick
off at 20:45.

The Nerazzurri coach went on: “That’s the basic
idea, regardless of which formation we go with. We must be in control
of games for the whole 90 minutes again. Show the quality to get at
the opposition and cause problems for them, think like a big team.”

That’s what Stramaccioni wants from his players, and
it’s what the players want too as they prepare to face a side that “in the reverse fixture earlier this season showed how organised they are, although
it was under a different coach. Then Corini came in and he’s given
them an even stronger identity and made them more compact. They won in Rome, they
were in it right up to the end against Juve. They’re a side we must show respect for.

“We’ve gone through a run of games in which we
didn’t play like Inter. Tomorrow we must play like Inter. It’s up to
us to take the game to our opponents and put them under pressure. I
don’t want to see a repeat of what happened at Siena, and nor do the
players. We’ve put Siena behind us. It’s our duty to do
battle on the pitch right till the very end – that’s what you expect from
Inter.”
