Inter Coach Spalletti: “Inter Have To Fine The Way Back To Winning Titles”

After the 0-0 result against Sassuolo at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Inter coach Luciano Spalletti analyzed the game in an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia.

“We recovered a lot of balls tonight, but we failed to dominate the game since we lost possession a lot after getting it. At the end we failed to show the difference between the teams, a difference that we are capable of showing.”

What is your thoughts about the performance of the team?

“We were better in the defensive phase compared to the offensive. Both departments of the team are to blame, but the difference is as always that of handling the ball and in that aspect we lacked the quality that we should have had against a team like Sassuolo. When they found the space for their counterattacks we were a bit afraid and that made them create a lot of good opportunities.”

What do you make of  your ball possession?

“We always see the glass as half full, because we always try to improve. We failed in not having a way of wearing our opponent down. Something that we could see in us losing balls, giving Sassuolo counterattacks that made us run back 70-80 meters. If you make these kind of mistakes you pay the consequences. Instead you have to position yourself on the middle of the opponents half and then look for a quality type of play. Today we lacked somewhat a maturity when we managed our possession.”

What are your goals in the Europa League?

“According to me, what we do in the championship also affects this kind of talk, because we still have to continue to produce results. We still have to grow, we still have to work hard and position ourselves among the top four. And then we have to do well, not only in Europa League, but in the Coppa Italia as well. Because this is how we introduce new players to our way of playing. In the Champions League we did well, but when we failed to qualify everyone jumped on us because there were a lot of expectations. But in the end, we returned to the Champions League, we found ourselves faced against a lot of competitive teams and we were a bit unfortunate. Like I said during yesterday’s presser, Inter has to find the way back to winning titles.”

What do you think about the atmosphere created by all the kids?

“It was beautiful, because you heard the roars of happiness and it was really a party for everyone. Most of them shouted out for Inter but there were also kids that shouted out for other teams.”
