The coach: “On the pitch in 72 hours”. The bianconeri will have a shorter break
“The calendar is crazy. We’ll go back to training tomorrow morning, then there will be finishing touches for the match against Juventus. The calendar is crazy, we play a lot.” Simone Inzaghi points the finger at the calendar which, after Empoli-Inter, will force the Nerazzurri to take the field in 72 hours for the semi-final of the Italian Cup against Juventus. The bianconeri, engaged in the evening postponement against Napoli, will have fewer hours of rest than the nerazzurri.
“The team has given me excellent signals, even those who haven’t played much so far have given a great response. It’s an important victory, we needed it. Now we’ll play every 48-72 hours, we suffered the semi-final of the Coppa Italia,” says Inzaghi to Dazn. In Empoli, Romelu Lukaku was decisive with a brace. The Belgian centre-forward will be available for the match against Juve after the unprecedented pardon granted by the FIGC president Gabriele Gravina who canceled the disqualification in the Italian Cup.
“It’s very important to have found Lukaku again, he’s working a lot like all the other strikers. It’s nice now to have abundance problems. Apart from Skriniar, I think I have everyone available for the match against Juventus. Lukaku’s grace is a great gesture of the federation for the whole system and in particular for young people”.
