Inter coach Antonio Conte discussed the Nerazzurri’s bitter 2-1 derby defeat to rivals AC Milan in an interview with Italian broadcaster InterTV after the game.

“I honestly don’t like to talk about luck or bad luck, especially when you lose. I believe that Inter played their game in an important way and created several opportunities.

“We should have been more precise in front of goal and at the same time we gave away too many chances.”

The 51-year-old Italian highlighted how he was not angry at the squad for their effort and is looking ahead to the future.

“We need to improve, but I don’t blame the effort put in by the guys. I am very sorry, a defeat in the derby hurts, but we have to reset by drawing right from this match.

“We have played the game anyway, I hope that lady luck will assist us in the future.”

Finally, Conte spoke about the Nerazzurri’s upcoming Champions League opener against Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.

“We have the first game against Borussia. We need to reset, as far as will and sacrifice shown I do not complain about anything, but we will continue to work hard throughout the year.”

Inter started the derby against the Rossoneri well, but conceded two early goals from Swedish veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 13th and 16th minutes.

The Nerazzurri fought hard to overturn the deficit, with Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku netting later in the half in the 29th minute.

A tense second half followed, but missed chances ultimately proved costly as AC Milan walked away 2-1 winners, putting them firmly at the top of the league table.

Inter are now down in sixth place. Their next league clash is against Genoa next Saturday.
