Former Udinese manager Francesco Guidolin has shared his belief that Inter did not deserve to win in last night’s Serie A match at home to fellow Serie A title contenders Napoli.

Inter ran out narrow 1-0 winners over the Azzurri at San Siro thanks to a second half penalty from talisman Romelu Lukaku.

The win over Napoli was Inter’s fifth win a row in Serie A and the win has also brought Inter to within a single point of the current Serie A leaders AC Milan, after the Rossoneri club drew 2-2 with Genoa last night.

“Conte goes home happy because he has won a match he didn’t deserve to win,” Guidolin, who last managed Swansea City in 2016, explained in an interview with Italian radio station Radio24, which took place earlier on today.

Guidolin, who also had multiple spells in charge of Palermo in the 2000s, went on to add: “Inter played a good game on a tactical level, with less aggression due to fatigue. Napoli on the other hand made a good impression, but the Nerazzurri won and that’s what counts.”

Inter are next in action this weekend with them due to play host to Spezia on Sunday afternoon. They will then play Hellas Verona on Wednesday before a little break for Christmas.
