Inter Coach Inzaghi Disappointed After 3-1 Loss to Lazio, “It’s a Setback”

Inter coach Simone Inzaghi was not happy following the team’s 3-1 loss to Lazio last night.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN (via LazioNews24) after the game, the 45-year-old Italian coach first commented on the Nerazzurri’s performance in their loss to the Biancocelesti.

We played the best game for the first 60 minutes, surely a team like ours could have managed better. 

We could have scored a second, then we conceded a goal from a corner kick that we can’t concede. 

Lazio are a quality team and they came out, we conceded a second goal that was a bit strange and then we lost our heads. 

The third goal conceded like that is not good. We’ll take the performance and not the result, it’s a setback that we didn’t need for our position in the league table.

The Inter coach spoke about Lazio’s second goal, scored by Felipe Anderson whilst a Nerazzurri player was down on the pitch.

The referee in these situations can also stop the game, but a team like ours playing like we did must bring home another result. 

In the first half we put the ball out. Fate and bad luck wanted us to concede the goal in that position where we had a player down.

The 45-year-old Italian noted where the team should have improved in the match.

The team performed well, we had to stay in the game even if it was 2-1, at that point you have to try to bring home at least a draw. 

We held the pitch in the best possible way, at the end of the first half I said we had to be good at killing the game, we had to be better.

Inzaghi commented on his emotions ahead of the match against Lazio. He walked over to the Curva Nord to greet the fans.

It was a very intense five minutes, a great emotion. I was very pleased with the welcome I got from my fans, when the whistle blew I was a professional, trying to give my best. 

The end was bitter and we didn’t need that for our spot in the table. It was a very intense day, it was the start I dreamed of.

He was particularly unhappy with the second goal that the team conceded.

We dropped with the second goal, you can’t concede goals like we did. 

We have to do two days of analysis.

Finally, Inzaghi spoke about the incident between Luiz Felipe and Joaquin Correa after the match, which resulted in a red card for the Brazilian defender.

I didn’t see anything, I know they are great friends and I don’t think anything in particular happened.

Lazio will be hoping to maintain their momentum from this win, with their next match being against Olympique de Marseille next week on Thursday.
