After the final whistle of today’s game against Bologna, Inter coach Luciano Spalletti talked to Premium Sport in the mixed zone and had the following to say: “To overcome a difficult moment like this is never easy for any football player. Now we have taken an important first step and today the players were great. We take the lead and almost immediately after they equalize and we have to make a substitution due to an injury, the recent games all have been like that. But the second half was perfect, we had the opportunity to control the game with one man more, but instead we dropped a lot of easy balls. But we did not concede any shots at goal. Karamoh? He did really well and has these very important skills with speed and technique. He made a fantastic goal today. Brozovic? The club and the coach must set the rules, and he who does not follow them is automatically excluded. Not because we are punishing him but because he is not behaving like the rest of the group. Today I wanted something different from the group from the beginning and started a bit differently compared to how we normally start, I wanted Perisic to play as a left half-winger, which is a future role of him. Then we had to focus on maintaining a balance.”
