Pintus: 'Inter players trimmer'

Inter's fitness coach Antonio Pintus has remarked their players are trimmer this season, carrying less weight compared to last year.

Pintus was signed in the summer from Real Madrid and discussed his work in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"For me and Antonio Conte, strength is a very important aspect. I don't follow trends and I agree with the coach: to achieve goals you have to train well."

With Inter playing in the Champions League in addition to Serie A, they have a game every three days, which as contributed to a series of muscular injuries.

"To counter fatigue we use muscle draining therapies, postural work, massages, and the reintegration of lost energy thanks to proper nutrition.

"Compared to last year, many players, also thanks to our nutritionist Matteo Pincella, have improved their weight and body fat levels."
