Gasperini: I was right, Inter

Gian Piero Gasperini is still bitter about his short spell in charge of Inter last season, suggesting today that the club are only now adjusting to his ideas.

The Coach has the distinction of being the only one in the Nerazzurri’s history never to have won a game whilst in charge, after being sacked soon after a disastrous start to last season.

Gasperini has regularly suggested that he was not supported by La Beneamata in the transfer window and today has suggested that Inter’s work this summer is reflective of the fact that he was right to have asked for change at San Siro.

“This year Inter is setting up a competitive squad. They are signing key players, unlike last year when they were signing ‘extras’,” he told Tuttosport.

“Is there any regret? I probably didn’t arrive at the right time, with the deserved credibility.

“Now I see Pazzini, who was one of the reasons for my unhappiness, out of the squad. I also see Palacio. I see a defence of three, which is now everywhere - Juventus, Napoli...

“And I also see that in the end Inter finished sixth and they tried to camouflage it and fix it. I do not think that can be considered a reasonable position.

“I do not think I would have done the same, I don’t think I would have ended on 58 points.”
