Asked about Mkhitaryan, Inter coach Inzaghi said that “Today is the last training session. Yesterday he completed his first full session after 22 days.”

“The feeling is positive, although I’ll have to make a decision.”

“I’m lucky enough to coach a group of real men who I wouldn’t trade for anyone,” he added. “This group gives me immense joy, and we’ve also given that to our fans.”

“We have some doubts about some players, Mkhitaryan and Correa, but both seem to be recovering,” he added.

Asked who he expects to start between Mkhitaryan and Marcelo Brozovic, Inzaghi said that “In the last two months I’ve had to make a lot of selection decisions.”

“Unfortunately over the first five I wasn’t really able to do so the way I am now,” the Nerrazzurri coach continued.

“Tomorrow, we’ll evaluate Mkhitaryan’s condition, he can’t be 100% but he showed positive signs yesterday,” he added.
