The Nerazzurri boss has hailed his men for defeating Milan and believes the team is on the right track.
Inter Milan defeated bitter rivals, A.C Milan, 1-0 in Derby della Madonnina on Sunday, January 15, as Diego Milito’s second-half winner was enough to hand all three points to the Nerazzurri.
Inter Milan head coach, Claudio Ranieri, has hailed his team for the win, and believes that they are ready to take big steps towards success. The tactician insisted that after losing to big teams such as Juventus, Udinese and Napoli
earlier this season, a win against Milan will certainly boost the confidence.
Ranieri expressed his happiness over the victory after the game and while talking to the media at San Siro, the tactician said:
“We are making huge steps forward and it was important to beat Milan, the first head-to-head in our favour. Evidently the other three defeats to Juventus, and Udinese taught us a lesson.”
The 60-year-old believes that the Nerazzurri squad has improved greatly in the recent games and have found their best form.
“We were tight, tactically smart and ready to hit them at any moment. At times this season we played badly and won. Now we’ve been doing well and have rediscovered the energy to get back to our best,” added the former defender.
Inter have now won their previous six league outings, and remain only six points behind league leaders, Juventus.
The Inter boss revealed that after a slow start to the season, they were aiming to seal a UEFA Europa League spot, but a string of impressive performances have put them back in the title race.
The 2011 Coppa Italia winners are expected to welcome and Diego Forlan back in the starting line-up in the future games, as the duo have recovered from their respective injuries. However, Ranieri believes that the
duo will have to earn their place, as the team is settled and their replacements are performing exceedingly well. on Sunday, January 22.
