Former Inter striker Nicola Ventola has stressed that Inter can no longer make any mistakes in the Champions League group stage after their defeat to Real Madrid earlier on this week.
Inter came from 2-0 down and got the game back to 2-2 and had chances to go on and win the game but ultimately Inter were unable to grab another goal and they could not secure a draw either as Rodrygo scored late to secure a 3-2 win for the hosts at the Alfredo Di Stefano stadium.
“I’m sorry because the game was impeccable tactically. Inter always pressed high. There were individual mistakes. There was also that feeling of being able to score and go on to win the game when it was 2-2,” he explained in an interview with Inter’s official club broadcaster Inter TV, which was broadcast yesterday afternoon.
The former Italian under 21 international then went on to add: “Nothing can be said about Conte and how he approached the match in Madrid. Now we can no longer make mistakes. One victory is enough to be first.”
Ventola had two spells with Inter, which totalled six years, some of which he spent out on loan. The now 42-year-old made a total of 64 appearances for Inter, in which he scored 21 goals and provided his teammates with a total of two assists.
