Inter Milan manager, Luciano Spalletti believes he has the support of his players after registering a 0-1 home defeat against Bologna on Sunday.
The Nerazzurri failed to score in a third consecutive match to fall 20 points behind Serie A leaders, Juventus in the table.
This has allowed AC Milan to slowly catch up to them in the top four standings, with the arch rivals only 4 points behind them now.
Speaking on the recent disappointments, Spalletti was quoted – “The team is with me and as far as I’m concerned, I don’t have any issues there. We created problems for ourselves today. Even when we should’ve been comfortable or were in a position to score.”
“You then lose confidence in your own ability and if the level of insecurity grows, you start to make mistakes, while the opposition can score. It takes a strong character to react, and we must improve on this.”
“Every time we fall beneath the standards that we’ve set, we even make the most basic of errors. The football wasn’t fluid but we still had three clear chances to take the lead. At times, one chance would’ve been enough but we didn’t manage to score and then you start trying to force it too much.”
The team was booed off the pitch after the defeat last night but Spalletti chose to side with the fans. The Argentine boss said, “Whistles don’t change anything in my attitude. The fans deserve better because this is Inter. Serious responses are needed with what we do on the pitch and how we think.”
