Roberto Gagliardini assured Inter supporters they would enjoy a great season this year after yesterday’s defeat to Manchester United.
Mason Greenwood’s second-half strike condemned the Nerazzurri in their International Champions Cup opener, which Antonio Conte was forced to play without first-team forwards.
Gagliardini admitted Inter had work to do but said they were on the right path to achieve success under Conte.
“All things considered we put in a good performance,” the midfielder told Inter TV.
“We still need to understand what the coach is asking from us but there are certain positives to take from this match.
“We struggled to get our pressing game going, but they were further ahead in their preparation than us so it can happen.
“I’m convinced we’ll be ready when the moment arrives to play the big matches this year.”
Gagliardini insisted the sweltering heat in Singapore was not an excuse for Inter’s below-par performance, instead encouraging his teammates to think about Wednesday’s match against Juventus.
“We’ll be focused on that from today and we’ll be out to avenge this defeat,” the Italian added.
Inter will fly to Nanjing for that fixture later today, before playing Paris Saint-German in Macau next weekend.
