Atalanta head coach Edy Reja felt regretful after losing to Inter after Stevan Jovetic scored on stoppage time: “Losing like we did really hurts, Inter were often forced to shoot from outside the box because we did a good job in defense. It’s a shame we got a player sent off, I was just going to put on Migliaccio for Carmona when he received his second yellow. Maybe this game would have finished differently with all twenty-two players still on the pitch. Before the red card we played well and even came close to scoring. The sending-off changed a game in which we were playing well, however letting Jovetic take shots from close range is something we should have avoided better. We did not keep the ball very well and we got very few free kicks to catch our breath. De Roon? He is adapting well to the central midfield position, he is an intelligent player who can play in that role and he showed that tonight, when Cigarini isn’t available he can fill the spot. Denis? I do not yet know what the situation is, he was in some pain but I do not think it’s very serious. I am happy with how we moved on the wings, the team has listned ell to my instructions, all I want now is for us to be less naïve in the attacking phase.
Inter? This season they have changed both at the back and in midfield, some extraordinary players have joined the team, from a physical point of view as well as a technical one, and I believe that they can do well this season”.
