Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi isn’t hiding his feelings after a frustrating draw against Bologna in Serie A this afternoon.
The coach vented his anger speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the match, via FCInterNews, characterizing the result as “two bloody points lost.”
Inter seemed to be in full control after their second goal went in against Bologna.
The Nerazzurri were already 2-0 up before even fifteen minutes had passed.
However, it was a penalty that gave Bologna a route back into the match. A clumsy challenge by Inter captain Lautaro Martinez inside the area on Bologna’s Lewis Ferguson undid the Argentine’s brilliant effort to make it 2-0.
Some complacency was apparent from Inter afterwards. And a goal from Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee saw the Emilian team complete their fightback.
Inter still had the better part of a full half of football in which to restore their advantage after squandering their two-goal advantage.
But in the end, despite some changes from Inzaghi, they were unable to.
Now Inter have to go into the international break reflecting on how they managed to drop points for the second time this season in a match where they had looked to be cruising.
Inter Milan Coach Simone Inzaghi Vents Anger After 2-2 Serie A Draw Vs Bologna
After the match, Inter coach Inzaghi was far from in the best of moods.
“It’s normal that I’m angry, as are the players,” the coach said. “Because this is the second time we’ve taken the lead and not won.”
“Today we drew due to some carelessness that we shouldn’t have committed,” Inzaghi continued to vent.
“In the first half we could have scored more goals, and in the second it was one-way traffic after their equalizer,” the Inter coach said.
“However, there can’t be these kinds of switch-offs at this level,” he added.
“We know that Bologna are having an impressive season. But we can’t have these simple errors.”
As far as the difference between this stage of the current season compared to the last one, Inzaghi said that “We’ve played eight matches, won six, lost one, and drawn one.”
“We’ve clearly found another gear to get ourselves up the table,” he added.
“But I’m angry about today because after going 2-0 up I can hardly accept this draw. It’s football, and we have to keep working and growing.”
“We shouldn’t have made the mistake of letting them back into the match,” the Nerazzurri coach said. “After the penalty, it gave them energy.”
“But a team like ours also can’t be letting the equalizer happen,” he continued.
“These are two bloody points for us to have dropped,” the Inter coach said.
And regarding the corner that resulted in the penalty that got Bologna back into the match, Inzaghi said that “Both [Lautaro] and the other players marking needed to be more careful.”
As to the reason for Marcus Thuram coming off as a substitution, Inzaghi said that it was a “Technical decision.”
