Icardi & Politano reflect on a poor result at the Meazza

1

Mauro Icardi & Matteo Politano have both expressed their regret at not progressing to the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.

The nerazzuri failed to go through to the knockout stages after being held to a disappointing 1-1 with the Dutch champions. Captain Icardi shared his thoughts after the match:

“There is certainly anger. We had to win the match. We had to go forward but we did not manage to score, we deserved to go through because we showed we could play with everyone, it is a real shame.”

Matteo Politano, who looked lively once again throughout his time on the pitch also shared his despair at not being able to go that one step further in Europe’s penultimate competition:

“It hurts so much. We knew it would be a difficult match and that PSV would come here to play their game. We are disappointed especially for our fans who even today have given us an important boost.”

Inter now wait to find out who they will face in the Europa League Round of 32.
