Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels some disappointment at having only managed to draw against Atalanta this evening at the San Siro despite a strong performance in which his side had chances to take three points.
Speaking in a press conference after the match, as reported by FCInterNews, the Italian tactician gave his immediate reaction to a back-and-forth match which saw the Nerazzurri and La Dea share the points.
Inzaghi saw his team lead, and then trail, before deservedly pegging back Gian Piero Gasperini’s men in the second half, but the drama did not end there.
Inter had a chance to take the lead late on when a penalty was awarded for a Merih Demiral handball in the box but Federico Dimarco hit the crossbar, while Atalanta had a late striker ruled out because the ball had went out of bounds during the buildup.
In the end, the sides will share the points having both put in impressive attacking performances, and Inzaghi can only express his regret that his team were not able to take three points from the encounter.
“It was an excellent match played at a high pace,” he said, “there is some regret because perhaps we could have deserved the winning goal. Sorry because we wanted to give our fans a victory, but the match was still a good one. On both sides there were great opportunities, I think it was an open match with many reversals in front of us.”
He went on, “Their first goal was a worldie, on the second maybe we could have been more careful. There is regret for the result, but the guys fought with great intensity. I’m not happy with the result, but it remains an excellent performance against a great team.”
