Internazionale coach Antonio Conte was unable to steer his team to victory in the Serie A derby against AC Milan. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored two goals as Milan secured a 2-1 victory. Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for Inter after Ibrahimovic opened the score from the penalty spot. After the game Conte was happy with the performance of his team and insisted Milan were lucky to beat them.
“This is not the time to look at situations outside football,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia. “I think we played very well, created many situations to score goals, in some cases were unlucky, and it’s disappointing because the lads certainly put the effort in and believed they could win. We were distracted and made errors on their two goals, still had the chances to equalise, but Milan won and so we congratulate them.”
“Every match we seem to create many, many scoring opportunities, so need to be more cool-headed and clinical in front of goal. At the same time, I cannot complain about their attitude, as we tried everything to at least get the equaliser.” Because of the loss Inter have dropped down to sixth place on the table while Milan keep their perfect score as they are topping the table.
