Former Inter defender Marco Andreolli feels that the team must catch their breath and get back to their best to try and put the stumble of their 2-1 loss to Bologna behind them.
Speaking to InterTV after the match, the former defender stressed the importance of completely resetting mentally and getting key players back to approach the remaining matches in the best way.
Inter’s loss to the Rossoblu will be taken not just as a damaging blow in the table, but also in terms of the team’s mentality as it has sent their title push of course from what looked to be a promising position.
However, there is still a real opportunity at hand to capitalize on any slip-ups by AC Milan should they appear in the coming matches, as well as a Coppa Italia final to be played against Juventus.
If Inter let this loss set the tone for the rest of their season they could falter in their pursuit of the Scudetto and the Coppa, but if they can find a way to put it behind them, they are still in the hunt for trophies.
Andreolli called it “A match that seemed to have gone off track. Great quality and great ruthlessness allowed us to take the lead with some quality football.”
“Bologna were struggling but we didn’t succeed in finding a second goal,” he added. “After the equalizer the match became trickier, though Bologna created little.”
He went on that “It’s not over from here, there are four matches to go. Now more than ever we have to try to win them all, hoping that in front they drop points along the way.”
“We need to get all our players back and have the full squad available,” he added. “We have to reset. This seasons has shown us that twists and turns are always possible.”
