Inter defender Stefan de Vrij discussed the Nerazzurri’s disappointing 2-1 loss at home to Bologna in the Serie A in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN aired immediately after the game.

“They came back at us, when playing with eleven men we didn’t manage to win, then playing with ten we lost. I’m sorry, I think they had a chance towards the end in the first half where Handanovic saved us. We certainly have to do better in some ways.”

The 28-year-old Dutchman discussed whether there is a mentality problem within the squad.

“Obviously there’s still a long way to go. Too often when we go into the lead, we can’t close the game out and we’re in trouble. There’s still so much to improve.”

De Vrij, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2023, played the full 90 minutes against the Rossoblu earlier today. The 28-year-old Dutchman has made 35 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 2983 minutes. In that time, he has scored three goals and provided four assists.

Inter’s failure to earn a single point against Bologna means that they are now 11 points behind rivals and league leaders Juventus, who are also seven points ahead of second place Lazio, making them the favourites for the league title. Inter’s next game is against Hellas Verona on Thursday next week, with a win being vital for Antonio Conte’s squad.
