Conte: “Disappointed at not having picked up the three points.”

Antonio Conte

Inter and Lazio shared 1 point each at the Stadio Olimpico. Despite being in control, for the most part, Inter could not finish the game off and had to settle for a draw.

This is what Antonio Conte had to say after the match:

“We dominated the game and had many chances to secure the result. Instead, Lazio did well to equalize with a move we’ve come to expect from them. After that goal, we lost our confidence somewhat.”

“We managed to respond and had many chances. The lads showed great desire and determination, they are the first to be disappointed at not having picked up the three points.”

When asked about Perisic’s selection and his role in the team, Conte said:

“I’m very happy. He’s a player who can create opportunities by making the most of one-on-one situations in the attack.  I’m happy with Ivan’s performance. Games like this allow us to gain experience.”

On Barella’s midfield role, Conte replied: 

“Nicolò played in attacking position at Cagliari, and I think he performed well that game. In that position, he can provide quality, danger, and balance when we’re not on the ball.”

“It is a long season, I expect all midfielders to occupy multiple positions. I am happy with the way the lads have responded.”

Regarding the squad’s depth:

“I think that this is the right mix of players to compete in all competitions as best we can. I will alternate between solutions over the course of the season.”
