Yea, Inzaghi is disgrace. Lets blame him for what he did to poor Lukaku. He would never contact rube if Inzaghi started him in the final.. Lolololol

Then my friend, we can forget about young, talented players coming to Inter. We can forget about the new Bastoni or Lautaro or Brozo, because such players won't have a future with Inzaghi. A young player with some experience will be in the Balogun range.

Without these type of players, we will rely heavily on selling like Hakimi or Onana to bring fonds for the "experience" Inzaghi needs.
Asllani or Bissek should ask for a way out, because they destroy here whatever future they have,

Why do you think I want another coach

Lukaku has always been an unreliable person, just ask any Chelsea fan about it, so regarding him it’s hardly
Inzaghi’s fault.. Frankly glad he showed his real face.

I rate Inzaghi as a coach, but this is massive negative point.
Until now we rellied heavily on players like Bastoni, Lautaro, Brozo or Barella. Players which we won't have with Inzaghi's mindset. If we sell them in the next few windows (where should the money come from?) then what?
Without sugar daddy and selling whatever players we develop in the "ancienne regime" it is only a matter of time until we will be on the slippery slope.
I agree with your point.

Asllani is not good enough, if you are good you'll get the spot, plain and simple.

This has from the day we hired him been my number one concern and reservation about him…

I know it’s not easy to find a coach who will get this team into top four on a continuous basis with our limited budget, but we also need to think long term and for that we need a coach who doesn’t mind or aren’t afraid of developing players, Inzaghi however just isn’t that coach.

Development of players aren’t surely down to the individual, the idea you buy into is exactly why we hardly produced one single player for our first team… it’s not because the talent has not been there. We had several promising talent we just lacked the setup and willingness to get something out of them…

Dimarco has been about it and he probably doesn’t even make top 10 of the biggest talent we had through the past 15 years.

For me this isn’t really about Asllani as such but more what Asllani represents.

It's probably his Lazio mindset, at Lazio he could only trust a few players and that was it. He should be happy he didn't get fired midseason in 2023, but that also probably comes with the caviat that he'll be even more afraid now.

This season could be easily the season to let Asllani play a bit more, but noooo, Inzaghi is scared

Inzaghi simply doesn't trust the player to provide what he wants. It's nothing about being scared.

If Inzaghi is not going to use Asllani, I'd definitely want Lopez rather than the physical midfielder. While Inzaghi doesn't trust Sensi either, we have one mezzala rotation player ahead of Sensi anyway (Frattesi). But we don't have any regista rotation player if Asllani isn't counted (in Inzaghi's books). Ideal would be to add the physical midfielder aswell.

Ironically, at Lazio he developed likes of SMS, Anderson, Keita Balde or Cataldi. But he had to, because these were the players Lotito provided. But on the other side he was not constrained by making CL regularly.
Now he has the luxury of not developing players. And except DiMarco who was already 25 when he became starter, he developed none.
We play with fire here, because without players like Lauti, Bastoni or Brozo, it could be very tricky in the future.
How long Marotta is here, I am still confident that we can navigate the waters. But otherwise, we could slip very fast in a new banter era.

Inter is still in banter era anyway as long as Zhang family around the club.

That's my main problem with Inzaghi. Lazy ass, when it comes to do extra work to develop younger guys.

Sending Asllani on a season long loan is probably the best thing we can do for his development...he will surely get the minutes he needs, while he would spent most of the season on the bench if he stayed with us...especially now that Sensi will get another chance to prove himself

It's not as just plain and simple my friend! And you are not alone with this opinion here.

I remember an interview with Greg Popovich ( arguable the best NBA coach ever) about the young players. And his stand apply for every sport.

There are kids who are talented and mentally ready to step up and impact the game even as teenagers, like Pedri or Haaland these days. Or Messi, Ronaldo and countless others.
But most of them must be nurtured over a few years. Until they put their talent on work, improve the skills and are mentally ready. And these are the majority of the players. If you are not in the right environment with the right people you could get easily lost.
I don't think Brozo, Bastoni or Lautaro would become what are they now, if Simone was their coach at the beginning of their career. And without this type of player development we won't have a high ceiling.
