Inter wingback Robin Gosens feels happy with having had the opportunity to show his qualities for ninety minutes against Bayern Munich in the Champions League yesterday.

Speaking to German media after the match, via FCInterNews, the 28-year-old also suggested that the Nerazzurri could have gotten more out of the match had a couple early incidents gone their way.

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi decided to play a fairly heavily-rotated starting eleven to face Bayern yesterday.

This was good news for Gosens as well as some other players, and also showed that the coach was ready to trust players who hadn’t necessarily been starting much in recent weeks.

The former Atalanta wingback saw out the ninety minutes, and will be hoping that his contributions caught the eye of his coach for the future.

For his part, Gosens is pleased with having taken the chance to show what he can do.

“I managed to play ninety minutes,” the German said, “I think I played well in them.”

“Of course, an assist would have felt great for me.”

“All in all, everything went well, this can be a great starting point for me,” he added.

Of the flow of the match, Gosens said that “We started very well, I haven’t seen the penalty incident yet [a handball by Bayern forward Sadio Mane], but then we had an excellent chance through Lautaro who unfortunately missed his shot.”

“If it had been 1-0 or 2-0 then it would have been a much different match, because the first couple chances were ours,” he continued.

“We know that Bayern have a lot of quality and play at a very high intensity,” Gosens said.

“Just look at the last twenty minutes,” he went on. “We’re simply not used to that kind of pace in Serie A.”

Of the two goals that the Nerazzurri conceded, Gosens said that “We conceded an avoidable goal from a corner and then their second was a great goal from Choupo-Moting, who’s in world-class form, when you’re in that kind of form even those shots go in.”

“Sometimes it happens that you lose 2-0 even if you put in a good performance,” he added.
