Inter Milan news
Speaking after the 3-2 victory for his side at San Siro over Inter to DAZN, via FCInter1908, the coach gave an insight to where he thinks the Nerazzurri preparation went wrong for the Derby della Madonnina which was one of the most thrilling in recent years.
He said that Inter must have expected the Rossoneri to press higher up the pitch but Stefano Pioli did not choose to do that.
“Today I think Inter expected us to press higher up the pitch, instead we waited for them a bit more. We didn’t concede so much space.
“I was sure they would play two fast forwards. With Inter’s quality they can jump you even if you’re close. Inter are very strong in depth and we tried to take it away and sometimes we succeeded.”
He was not totally happy with his team’s performance as he stressed that there was a 20-minute spell where they were too relaxed and risked losing their lead.
