After one of Inter’s worst performances of the season, Simone Inzaghi spoke in a post match interview unable to hide his disappointment.
“I’m really annoyed with our approach, because we spoke about it after the game on Wednesday. Sassuolo had already won at the San Siro against Milan and in Turin against Juventus. They play well on the counter and we needed to be careful of this.
“The team created so many chances in the second half but it didn’t go our way. Overall, we needed to approach the game differently, irrespective of the qualities Sassuolo possess and the fact that they came to the game fresher physically than us.
“We created lots of chances but couldn’t get the goal to get us back in it. Also, we lost our shape a bit because we were trying to get back into the game. The boys didn’t do that and need to look into why that was. When a game doesn’t go well, we have to put it behind us because there’s another important match in four days’ time. With a short turnaround we need to recover physically and mentally. There are 13 games left before the end of the season and we have to move forward now.”
Inzaghi spoke further about the players who are unavailable, but emphasized it’s not excuse.
“We had some suspensions and injuries, but we must be more resilient in these situations. There are several teams bunched together in two or three points of the top of the league so we need to move forward. Other teams have also made mistakes. Unfortunately, we let in two goals and we don’t normally do that.”
This is now the second game in a row which Inter has failed to score in. As we saw Inter also losing 2-0 against Liverpool mid-week.
“We are still the best attacking force and we create a lot of chances, so we don’t need to worry about that. These things happen from time to time. However, today we needed to do better when defending because we knew the dangers that Sassuolo could pose. If we want to win the Scudetto, we cannot go into a game the way we did.”
