The Inter Milan manager Andrea Stramaccioni has hailed the performance of his team after they secured the fifth straight win in all competitions. Andrea Stramaccioni was appointed as a replacement for Claudio Ranieri midway through last season. Many suspected of the ability of the former youth team manager to be able to lead a team full of stars like Diego Milito. However, he has not only been able to get most of the players on his side, but he has also been able to reduce the age and wage bill of the club this season. He has, however, not allowed this to affect the results this season.

In fact, Inter Milan have been at their impressive over the last few weeks then they have been in the last three seasons. The 3-1 win over Bologna during the weekend once again asserted the fact that Inter Milan will be able to challenge both Juventus and Napoli for the title at the end of the season, despite many rejecting them as just Europa league contenders for this season. Inter Milan last suffered a defeat back in September and have since won all the matches in all competitions. This has put them third place in the Italian Serie A table with 21 points on board.

“In my opinion it was a great performance. We are moving forward, and I am pleased with the progress we are making. I’m trying to do my part. I’m proud to be Inter’s coach. When a team wins eight away matches it’s a sign of unity. It means that we are focused and motivated,” said the Inter Milan manager after the win over Bologna. The most important match for Inter Milan in the league this season will be coming in the form of the away trip to Juventus a fortnight away.
