Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi is angry with the way he saw his side play against Sassuolo as they fell to their third defeat of the season in Serie A.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after this evening’s loss to the Neroverdi, the coach made no excuses for the performance and acknowledged that his players had been partly responsible for their own downfall.

Inter were hoping to bounce back from a midweek Champions League loss to Liverpool by defeating Sassuolo to keep their Scudetto push on track, but instead they dropped points for the third consecutive league fixture in a row.

The Neroverdi have beaten the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, and Lazio this season already, but Inter will nevertheless have felt that they had the quality to overcome their opponent on the night.

Instead, Inzaghi saw his players overrun in the first half to go two goals down before a toothless second half display meant that they dropped all three points.

“I’m very angry about how we approached it,” he said. “We had three days after Wednesday’s match, we spoke about it.”

“We knew how Sassuolo play, we had to be careful,” he continued. “In the second half we tried to put something together, there weren’t even any episodes, but apart from the qualities of Sassuolo and their efforts our approach needed to be better.”

He reflected that “We’ll analyze it calmly and try to get back our physical and mental energy. We play fifteen finals from now until the end of the season.”

On the team’s finishing, he stated that “We created a lot but we weren’t able to get a goal back. At the end of the first half I could have made more changes, then we lost some of our shape, we tried to get back in the game but we couldn’t.”

“Unfortunately this will be something we have to analyze and put behind us because we have another game in three days’ time, we play all the time,” the coach continued.

“We must be strong no matter who is absent, suspended, no matter the episodes,” the coach stressed. “Let’s keep going and see what the table says at the end of the season.”

On whether the team had any nerves after recent dropped points, Inzaghi replied “I don’t think there was any tension or anxiety. Top players are used to matches like this, we likely lacked polish due to physical and mental fatigue.”

“Unfortunately we conceded two early goals that often don’t go in, and then after that our attackers are not in great form,” he added.

“We still have the best attack in the league,” Inzaghi went on, “we’ll get back to scoring and shooting with more conviction, and even today we created a lot of chances.”

He concluded that “Today we needed to be better and pay more attention because we knew that Sassuolo had won difficult away matches already, and after Wednesday we had to approach this match better.”

“If you want to win the Scudetto, you can’t approach matches like this,” the coach rued.
