Luciano Spalletti had earlier warned his side to ensure they secure a win against Sassuolo during the Nerazzurri’s league 2019 campaign kick off.
However, his side has been left with a draw as they were unable to score against Sassuolo.
“It was a tough night because they played a good game,” began the Coach as quoted by Inter official website.
“We couldn’t control the game. Even when we did well to get the ball back, we then lost it again too quickly meaning that we were unable to make the most of the moment and get men over. We needed to do better in those situations before their defence could settle in place. We didn’t have enough quality on the ball and you need that against sides like Sassuolo who run a lot.”
“We did better in defence and less well in attack where we should have done more in terms of individual play and in looking to break their lines. They set up a low block as a team around the penalty area and we couldn’t find space. We were overwhelmed by their defensive line and Sassuolo also caused us some problems.
“In the end, we also ran the risk of losing. However, you always have to look at the glass half full and we need to keep getting results to avoid running the risk of other teams catching us up. We need to keep working and improving, we also want to do well in the Europa League and the Coppa Italia in order to consolidate our status.”
Spalletti also talked about all the children in attendance:
“It was wonderful to feel their enthusiasm. It really was a party in the stands.”
