Inter defender Stefan de Vrij praises his former coach Antonio Conte adding that Simone Inzaghi has been working ‘on a solid base.’
They won the title under Antonio Conte last term before the Italian tactician left the club by mutual agreement.
“Simone Inzaghi and Conte are two important coaches because they’ve won,” De Vrij told DAZN as quoted by FcInternews.
“I had already worked with Inzaghi at Lazio, Conte has had a great career because he’s always won.
“We won the title under Conte and you can see it now. Inzaghi has been working on a solid base and is doing an important season now.”
De Vrij’s contract expires in June 2023 and he has been linked with a move to Tottenham.
Last week, Inter director Piero Ausilio said that the club is in no rush to extend the player’s stay at the club.
De Vrij joined Inter on a free transfer from Lazio in the summer of 2018. He has played 141 games with the Serie A giants, scoring eight goals.
Despite his contract expiring in a year and a half and rumours linking him with a move away from Inter, De Vrij doesn’t seem to be considering leaving the club anytime soon.
“I have fun with [Denzel] Dumfries. He laughs a lot, but he is a warrior on the pitch,” he said.
“He is such a nice guy, we often joke with [Hakan] Calhanoglu and [Ionut] Radu.”
