Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi hints at plan to stop Man City striker Erling Haaland


Simone Inzaghi is training ahead of the UEFA Champions League 2022/23 final in Istanbul, Turkey on June 9, 2023.

Inter Milan have worked on a specific plan to try and limit Erling Haaland’s influence in the Champions League final, with the striker seeking to add to his 52 goals for Manchester City this season.

The Norwegian is going to be a major threat to Inter, who are underdogs in Istanbul, but Simone Inzaghi has a good record in cup finals and he’s come up with a tactical plan to try and stop Haaland.

Inzaghi is well aware that City have more threats than just Haaland, but his goalscoring record this term has been incredible and Inter will have to stay alert to try and keep him out.

“We know how strong Manchester City is, we know what a player Haaland is. We’ll have a special eye for him, he’s an attacking player,” said Inzaghi.

“I’ve prepared something but it will be all of Inter, the whole team will have to defend to limit not only Haaland but also City.”

Inzaghi has been impressed with all aspects of City’s game in the Champions League this season, but wants his team to turn up for the occasion and give them a contest.

“Regarding City’s defence, it is very solid, in the Champions League they conceded very little as they have done in the FA Cup,” he said.

“They’re good at defending, good at attacking. We know what kind of team they are, they’re very strong, we’ll try to play a match that is worthy of the final.

“We know what kind of match to expect, we know Manchester City right now is probably the best team in the world, they have proved it. But we’re aware of our Champions League campaign, we’re proud of what we did and we will do our best. We must make no mistakes because our opponents are a very strong game.”
