Ex-Nerazzurri Defender Riccardo Ferri: “Inter Deserved To Win Against Juventus”

Legendary former Inter defender Riccardo Ferri believes that the Nerazzurri deserved three points from their Serie A clash with Juventus yesterday evening.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset following the match, the 58-year-old suggested that his former side did not get the result that their performance deserved, and also questioned the late penalty that was awarded to the Bianconeri from which they equalized.

Inter came into one of their most significant matches of the season when they hosted Max Allegri’s Juventus, and they will have known that a top performance was necessary to rise the occasion given the quality of the opposition.

Simone Inzaghi’s men took an early lead through Edin Dzeko when the Bosnian turned in the rebound from a Hakan Calhanoglu strike which hit the post, and they managed to protect their slender advantage for much of the rest of the match.

The Nerazzurri had to settle for a point following the late equalizer, but Ferri believes that the performance would have been good value for a win.

“Bitterness about the draw,” he reflected, “but with the awareness of having played a good match. Inter played their game and Juve only seemed to try to restrict them. The entry of Dybala and Chiesa triggered something different in Juve.”

“I think Inter deserved to win this match,” he went on, “in the first half and in the first part of the second, then the changes in my opinion made the difference.”

And on the penalty awarded against Inter defender Denzel Dumfries he said, “The error is there, but I am left with doubt at the referee who initially says there is nothing.”
