Legendary former AC Milan, Real Madrid, and England coach Fabio Capello believes that Inter didn’t do enough to press their advantage in their Champions League win over Viktoria Plzen yesterday.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the 2-0 group stage victory, the former coach suggested that the Nerazzurri did not show the cutting edge they needed to after the home side went a man down, whilst he also suggested there wasn’t enough creativity in the first-half performance.
Inter did enough to get the job done and take three points against Plzen, creating the chances that they needed to score clear goals whilst they largely protected their own penalty area and stifled and counterattacking chances from the Czech side.
However, it was not exactly the most frenetic or aesthetically pleasing performance from the Nerazzurri, and Capello was not particularly impressed by it despite the result having been enough..
“Inter had some incredible opportunities, easy to find, but they never played with that determination when they had a numerical advantage,” he said. “In the first half , however, they created nothing – few moves, no dribbling, and this helped the opponents to defend comfortably.”
