For obvious reasons, a disappointed Luciano Spalletti spoke with Inter TV after the 1-0 loss against Juventus.
“We did what we had to do, but it is part of our identity to not look for any merits if what we do does not add any value. We do not need to reduce the tension in these moments, especially after having missed out on the opportunities we had. There is nothing that can compensate for the disappointment of failing to bring home a price after this game. The team conducted the game according to the game plan, then ended up with nothing. We just do not care about the compliments without having completed our work.”
He was then asked if defeats like this create the right conditions to improve in the future.
“When there is the right behavior it becomes important to believe in what we are doing, but then there is the need to be able to give everything for the entire game. You do not win games by taking things lighter from time to time and being less decisive. That is a defect that football will make you pay for dearly. That can also happen in other games if you do not complete your work.”
He concluded by looking ahead to Inter’s next match against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.
“We will be ready, it is a very important game. Today [yesterday] we made some decisions from the fact that in Champions League we have a restricted number of players.”
