We were not perfect
Antonio Conte said that the Scudetto challenger Inter Milan gave two goals to Lazio and “scared”. In the second half of his loss to 2-1 Serie A on Sunday. The half-time lead of Inter erased because Ciro Immobile and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic completed their comeback for Lazio. Which slid to Nerazzurri in second place. On the Conte side, the weekend started ahead of the defending Juventus champions in goal difference. But by the end of his trip to Rome, Inter was three points behind the pace in the race for Scudetto. After disassembling blockbusters in the capital of Italy, Inter’s head coach Conte told reporters: “I think it was a good performance. This is a result that I did not like, and how we lost two goals, how we gave them Lazio.”We were not perfect, but inevitably in these big games. The details become decisive, and the margin of error becomes reduced.
We were scared
This is part of the growth process, there was some naivety, and these guys should try to be more relaxed in these situations. We had other conditions this season when we were in the lead and scored points. For example, also Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, we had games at odds and eventually lost.”As I said, it’s a growth process, and we have to go through it so that we can face each situation in the right way. Right after the restart, it was like we were scared. The guys worked a lot, and I thank them for it. We try to annoy the teams at the top, it was “scoring” with Lazio. So we should be proud that we were in this situation in the firsts place.
The half-time lead performance by Ashley Young
At the same time, we must improve if we want to continue to cause problems at the top. Ashley Young gave Inter a half-time lead – former Manchester United captain and full-back became the first English scorer to Nerazurri in Serie A since Paul Ince in 1997. Ashley has been impressed since arriving with Old Trafford in January. The veteran said: “We have many games, we need to empty ourselves pretty quickly and get ready for the next game.”Of course, we are still in its title race, there are many games, many points for grabs. So I’m sure that we will return to victorious ways.”
