Inter Coach Simone Inzaghi: “Not Our Best Evening, We Deserved To Score”

Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that even though his side put in a lacklustre display in their 2-0 loss to Sassuolo this evening, their efforts were at least worth a goal.

Speaking to InterTV after the match, the coach acknowledged that the performance from his players hadn’t been good enough but also noted that they created a number of chances to score from during the second half especially.

Inter got off to the worst of starts, conceding within the first ten minutes, and it hardly got better from there as the Neroverdi continued to overrun them in midfield and then made it 2-0 before a half hour had passed.

In the second half, the coach made two changes to try and put his team even more on the front foot, and the Nerazzurri carved out several decent opportunities, while Sassuolo also missed a few good chances, but in the end the score remained 2-0 to the away team.

Stefan de Vrij had a very late goal disallowed due to an attacking handball in the buildup, and this proved to be representative of the Nerazzurri’s evening in front of goal.

“In the second half we created a lot of chances,” Inzaghi said, “unfortunately we weren’t able to get a goal back in front of our fans who, nevertheless, gave us a lot.”

He went on that “Even today the fans urged us along, a goal for 2-1 would have put the match right back in the balance. It wasn’t our best evening, but surely we deserved at least one goal.”

The coach continued that “We knew we were facing a difficult match, we took the wrong approach, we knew that Sassuolo are technically good and play good football.”

“We had to do better in the first half even if we had recently played some difficult and tiring matches,” he added.

“Now we must try to regain our physical and mental energy,” the coach went on, “all the teams at the top are within a few points of each other, let’s see who prevails in the end.”

Inzaghi also mentioned that “The fans saw that the guys left everything they had on the pitch. In the second half we gave everything, even if it was a bit of a mess.”

“The support of our fans was important,” he stressed. “The title race is very open, we will give everything in the run-in.”
