Inter Coach Inzaghi Laments Juventus Loss: “It Hurts”

Inter fell to a disappointing defeat at the hands of Juventus at the Allianz Stadium, thanks to two second half goals by Adrien Rabiot – who became just the third French midfielder to score for the club against the Derby d’Italia rivals – and Nicolo Fagioli. The win takes the Bianconeri to 5th position with a fourth consecutive clean sheet, one point ahead of the Nerazzurri.

Speaking to DAZN (via FCInterNews), Simone Inzaghi shed light on the loss that leaves his side hanging in the 7th position.

“We had an excellent first half where you can’t go to the break at 0-0 at Juve. The regret is there. In the second half we conceded goals after starting well and we disunited, despite having the opportunity to equalize, and then we conceded two. The defeat is heavy, it hurts. It is against one of our competitors, but football is like this: last year maybe we won without deserving, this year maybe there is no 2-0 but we have to improve in these matches and be clinical in the final-third.”

When quizzed what Inter is really missing, Inzaghi conceded that his team wasn’t really up to the mark.

“It shouldn’t happen to go down after a match that went like this. We were in a big hurry and we disunited. We had to keep calm. We shouldn’t have lost five defeats, in matches like those with Udinese and Roma. We did well in the Champions League, we aren’t able to achieve continuity in the league.”

Inzaghi then emphasized on the fact that his side need to find more continuity.

“Inter must aim to have even more continuity. This defeat hurts because of the game’s importance but in two days we are back on the pitch. We must be good at restarting in the best possible way. This time we did not score after having succeeded for 24 consecutive games.”

Inter find themselves off pace in the Serie A title race, 11 points behind league leaders Napoli and five points behind reigning Italian champions Milan.
