Ex-Nerazzurri Defender Francesco Colonnese: “Inter Unlucky Against Real Madrid, Squad Is Competitive”

Former Inter defender Francesco Colonnese believes that the Nerazzurri have reason to be optimistic despite a disappointing defeat against Real Madrid during the week.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster 1 Station Radio, the former defender gave the view that even though the result was not good in Wednesday’s Champions League group stage opener, the performance was encouraging.

Inter played with attacking intent against Real on Wednesday evening, showing plenty of quality and aggression as they created a number of presentable scoring chances against Carlo Ancelotti.

In the end, failure to convert any opportunities past an excellent Thibaut Courtois and a defensive lapse to allow Merengues substitute Rodrygo to score a last-minute winner condemned the Nerazzurri to a 1-0 defeat.

However, Colonnese believes that the overall performance showed a team which is strong and a squad with no shortage of quality in it.

“Inter have managed to deal with selling two top-level players, Hakimi and Lukaku, excellently,” he said, “reinvesting, despite the economic difficulties, part of those gains.”

He went on, “The team can compete both in the league and in Europe, but luck is also needed, which was missed yesterday against Real Madrid.”. AC Milan, on the other hand, came from inexperience
