Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi regrets that the team couldn’t win against Napoli in front of their fans at the San Siro.

The coach spoke to Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri’s 1-1 draw against the reigning champions in Serie A.

Inter got a big welcome back to the San Siro from their fans at the stadium.

Despite the fact that the team had suffered the disappointment of elimination from the Champions League, there was still a warm reception.

The Nerazzurri fans were hoping to see the team bounce back, with their support, and continue their charge towards the Serie A title.

And that’s what Inter looked to be doing in the first half of their match against Napoli.

However, a late equalizer from the Partenopei dampened the mood somewhat.

It was hardly the most damaging result in the world for Inter. But it meant that the team could not get back to winning ways in front of their home support.

Inzaghi: Regret Not Being Able To Dedicate Napoli Win To Inter Fans

After the match, Inzaghi commented that “We’re finishing up a week that we’d circled in red on the counter.”

“But tonight, I congratulated the guys on how they played.”

“We returned from Madrid at 5.30 on Thursday,” Inzaghi noted. “And then we had a day and a half to prepare for this match.”

“We’re disappointed for the fans, who gave us an incredible welcome back. We wanted to be able to dedicate a win to them.”

“But there are always new things to learn each week,” the Inter coach continued.

“For example, on the corner in the 82nd minute, we could have stepped up better as a team and marked better.”

As far as the elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Atletico Madrid, Inzaghi said that “You can take positive things from defeats.”

“We wanted to keep going. But so did Atletico. And they won.”

“It’s hugely disappointing,” Inzaghi admitted. “But you can always learn things from disappointments.”

Of the negativity and criticism that followed that elimination from the Champions League, the Inter coach said that “We’re used to negativity by now.”

“We have an armour against it,” he went on.

And of clinching the Serie A title in the run-in, Inzaghi noted that there are “Nine matches left.”

“That means 27 points to play for. So we have to always keep our concentration high.”
