In an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, Walter Zenga has reflected on Inter’s loss to Borussia Dortmund and manager Antonio Conte’s post-match outburst.

“Inter dominated for the first 45 minutes, but perhaps they didn’t take into consideration that Borussia Dortmund had their chances in the first half. Now it is all a controversy and it all seems negative, but everything is possible,” he explained.

When I listen to the press conferences of the other coaches I never judge, but I try to understand what they want to say. When Conte speaks of ‘programming not respected’ he means that his dissatisfaction is going in that direction.

“Having said that, Inter are in the running in the Champions League and are fighting with Juventus in the league, even though they have few players who – except Godin – have little experience in Europe.

“Inter signed Lukaku, Barella, Sensi, Godin but it is obvious that experience in the Champions League is important to do better. It is clear if you have players who have little experience you have to grow them, every now and then mistakes will be made and they will take a beating.”

“There will be additions, maybe in January and then in the summer, and by then Senssi and Barella will have even more experience.”

He then went on to speak about what he is expecting from the team this season.

“This year I don’t expect Inter to win the Scudetto or the Champions League, but I expect to see a team that grows under a good manager. Conte is competent and able to make his teams competitive.”
