Inter boss Simone Inzaghi has expressed his anger at the fact that the Nerazzurri could not pick up all three points from their game against Bologna.
Inter began the game at the top of the table but the draw means that they can now fall down to second, depending on Milan’s results in the current game week.
Inter did score two goals within the first 20 minutes, as Francesco Acerbi and Lautaro Martinez found the back of the net. But Riccardo Orsolini converted a penalty soon and Joshua Zirkzee equalised in the second half. Inter did have some chances to take the lead, but couldn’t score a third.
After the game, Inzaghi spoke to DAZN (via TMW) and expressed his anger at the failure to win the game. The Italian stated:
“It’s been 8 matches, we’ve had 6 wins, a draw and a defeat. I’m angry about today’s match because at 2-0, given what we produced and the way we were on the pitch, it’s difficult to accept this draw. We have to keep concentration was always high. At 2-0 we shouldn’t have made the mistake of opening up the game we were leading. At 2-2 we could have returned earlier, covered the pitch better, held our positions better. Those are bloody lost points and they don’t suit me.”
Inzaghi was also asked about whether Inter lacked energy in the second half but he refused that it is the case. The ex-Lazio boss stated:
“No, it’s not that, at 2-2 we created a lot. I remember Lautaro’s shot, for example. Among other things, they didn’t even give us a corner, but there was a deflection that perhaps avoided a goal. But a team like ours, we must not allow our opponents to open up the match.”
Milan take on Genoa later today and a win will take them to the top of the table.
