Inter Defender Bastoni on Playing for Inzaghi: “We Win & We Have Fun”

By Apollo Heyes -

Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni highlighted the joys of playing under coach Simone Inzaghi following the 2-1 win over Lazio.

Speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 22-year-old Italian defender first explained the circumstances surrounding his goal.

I wanted to shoot before then luckily Brozovic told me I was alone and so I shot better. It was a strange feeling because I haven’t scored for two years. I’m happier for the win though.

The Inter defender touched on the strengths of the team this season and if they’re stronger than last year.

I don’t know, we have the Scudetto on our chest and we want to defend it at all costs. Winning is nice and in the last two years we’ve acquired a great mentality.

Finally, Bastoni spoke about how it feels to play under Inzaghi, who left Lazio to join the Nerazzurri last summer.

At the beginning I had some difficulties but then I got into the movements.

We all give our soul, we win and we have fun.

The 22-year-old Bastoni, who is contracted to Inter until 2024, has made 24 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1942 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal, provided three assists and helped the side keep 10 clean sheets.

Inter’s win means that they still sit top of the Serie A table, one point ahead of intercity rivals AC Milan, although they have a game in hand after their match against Bologna last week was called off due to a COVID outbreak in the Rossoblu squad.
