Inter coach Simone Inzaghi has publicly accepted some of the blame for the Nerazzurri’s 1-0 defeat at home to Real Madrid on Wednesday night, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media today.
Speaking to Mediaset Infinity, Simone Inzaghi explained that he did make some mistakes during the match but also focused on the incredible saves that were made by Real Madrid goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois.
“They are moments, I have to carefully review all the decisons. I made some mistakes, but many, many compliments to the Real Madrid goalkeeper.”
The moments that he refers to presumably is in reference to the substitutions such as taking Lautaro Martinez off for Joaquin Correa instead of removing the tired looking Edin Dzeko.
Regardless of the result, it was clear that Simone Inzaghi was proud of his team’s performance. Thibaut Courtois’ performance was mentioned again and the coach feels Inter should have held out for a draw.
“I had asked for a test of courage and personality, the boys were very good; unfortunately we were unable to capitalise, a little from our own mistakes but above all thanks to Courtois who was amazing.
“Failing to win, we should have at least managed to get the draw.”
Inter were dominant for much of the game but failed to make any of their chances pay. They then conceded a late Rodrygo winner.
