A cleanshaven Borja Valero turned up to speak with Inter TV to analyse the Nerazzurri’s 1-1 draw at home against Roma at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza after Matias Vecino equalized in the dying minutes of the match to secure one point for the home side.
Borja was not happy with how the team began the match saying. “We started out very nervous, losing the ball in dangerous situations but we were the only ones who played the game, creating many goal scoring opportunities. It is a shame we were unable to take advantage of those early chances as the match would have been completely different. In the end we were a little bit too tired to try and score 2-1.”
The former Fiorentina player was asked if this late equalizer could function as a boost for the team going forward replying: “Yes, absolutely. We did a lot in the second half, but the draw gives us confidence for the upcoming matches. We are coming from a difficult period during which we have struggled to win, but tonight we showed that we have good things inside of us.”
In conclusion Valero ws asked about the chance he had int he first half saying: “When you are up front you have to score even though I don’t have those traits. I didn’t take advantage of the moment.”
