Inter Manager Inzaghi Laments Torino Slip: “Others Are Going Very Fast”

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi witnessed his team come from a goal down to steal a point off Torino right at the death. Highly sought-after transfer target Gleison Bremer drew first blood by capitalizing on a defensive mishap from a corner, before Alexis Sanchez emerged in the 93rd minute to slot the equalizer.

Speaking to the press in his post-match conference (via FCinterNews), Inzaghi lamented his side’s showing in the first period and said his team should have got the equalizer much earlier after the restart.

 “We found a valuable opponent in Torino. We had to do it better in the first half while in the second we deserved a draw within the first 25 minutes. We could also have won it.”

“In the championship we slowed down: we know we have to do more because the others are going very fast,” he commented.

Inzaghi then went on to praise matchwinner Sanchez, who bounced back from his red card at Anfield last week with the leveler in Turin.

“He is doing very well in this period. Until he was sent off at Anfield, he did well and despite the yellow card I didn’t take him off. Today he entered with the right spirit and scored an important goal for us,” said Inzaghi.

They have now secured four away draws in a row for the first time since the reign of ex-coach Roberto Mancini in 2004.

Inter threw away the chance to close in on league leaders Milan and second placed Napoli, although they still have a game in hand. The Nerazzurri sit in third position with 59 points, one off the Partenopei and four behind the Rossoneri.
