Inter’s players and staff were livid about Saturday’s controversial 3-2 defeat at Juventus, according to a report in the Italian media today.

Corriere dello Sport’s print edition said some at the club were relieved that Gianpaolo Calvarese’s questionable refereeing calls had not jeopardised their Serie A title hopes, with the Scudetto already long secured.

However, most were still angry at an avoidable defeat after Juventus secured victory with a soft penalty earned by Juan Cuadrado.

The Derby d’Italia match at the Allianz Stadium ‘ruined Saturday’ for players, staff and directors alike, while Antonio Conte’s reaction remains unknown after he refused to conduct post-match interviews (as he continued his recent media silence).

Inter’s players took to social media over the weekend to vent their frustrations, the Rome-based paper reported, with Marcelo Brozovic describing the game as ‘scandalous’ after he was sent off for two bookings.

Lautaro Martinez posted a pointed message which said ‘we’re the champions of Italy’, while Ivan Perisic argued Inter had played ‘against everyone and everything’.

As a result of Calvarese’s terrible officiating on Saturday, Brozovic and Matteo Darmian will both be suspended for Sunday’s Serie A title party against Udinese.
