Italian journalist Sandro Sabatini has analysed Inter’s performance in their 2-1 loss to Bologna this past weekend and started by speaking on Inter manager Antonio Conte.

Inter went 1-0 ahead through Romelu Lukaku and were in complete control for around 70 minutes but failed to make it count and were made to pay as Bologna scored twice in the final 15 minutes to secure all three points for themselves at Inter’s expense.

“In his first year he won at both Juventus and Chelsea, but not at Inter. It is not a criticism of Conte, but a praise for what he had done previously. Lippi’s time at Inter for now looks a bit like Conte’s story,” Sabatini explained in an interview with Italian radio station Radio Sportiva on Monday evening.

Sabatini proceeded to speak on Inter January transfer window recruit Christian Eriksen, who had a poor performance against the Rossoblu club.

“He was in better shape when he arrived from Tottenham in January when they didn’t let him play, but when he came in he showed interesting things. Now he does not touch the ball, he is disappointing and I have never seen a player so detached from the game. I can’t understand why he is such a foreign body.”

Next he went to explain why he thinks Inter collapse as often as they have done during this season, especially lately.

“Inter is a team that suffers comebacks because they have a style of play that is very wasteful in terms of energy. It is one thing to play 3-5-2 in the winter but it is another to play it in the Summer.

“The two wing backs run up and down and maybe they do better in Winter. Inter suffered the second goal because Candreva was gasping for air. Playing football in July is different.”

He was then asked whether he had any criticisms to make regarding Conte following his praise for the former Italian national team boss earlier on in the interview.

“I wont criticize him because it would be ungenerous, but there is a need to make considerations that need to be evaluated and accepted.

“Inter have had a transfer market that was far more superior to the one Spalletti ever had, maybe not one at the level of a €100 restaurant, but certainly one at around €80-90.”
