FC Inter News interviewed Stramaccioni after the Partizan match about why he changed the formation so many times: “We have not changed formation, we varied it, the formation has never really changed except for the back four.”
Sixth consecutive victory: “We are a very united group, we had difficulty but the team has lengthened and the performance of the second half is an important signal, we know we have a lot of work to do but we are happy with the result. Surely we can not have all in top condition, there is someone who is well and someone who is still looking for the best condition. Jonathan was embarrassed by Markovic only for two occasions, but as I said he has impressive acceleration and on that level can cause difficulties for everyone. I see a large group, I see all good but I think that sometimes there may be differences in condition.
What I told the guys? In the first half Partizan put us in anguish, they came to play the game and put us in difficulty in midfield. We read the game well and we returned to the field in the second half with a different attitude. Handanovic has proven to be one of the best goalkeepers in Europe doing a parade that counts as a goal. Congratulations to Partizan and my players.
Coutinho took a blow to the ankle we will do some tests, let’s see… Silvestre? I saw a careful performance after all then it is normal but I believe he can do better.
We have grown in recent games, I have the pulse of the situation and are satisfied with the growth, but there is still a lot of work to do. We are growing with 14 players but not with 20-22. Today Inter played well but I think we still have not found the right identity. But surely we have grown a lot since August. From tomorrow we only think about Bologna and now my head is only in this game.”
