Inter were defeated on penalties, but it coach Luciano Spalletti was happy with their performance.
NICE - After Chelsea vs. Inter, the Nerazzurri’s Coach Luciano Spalletti looked back on the game. "We struggled to deal with their speed and technical quality at the start, they took the lead from our mistake but then we gained confidence and loosened up, playing better in the second half.
I’m enjoying how the team is willing to put the concept of the football that we want to play into practice. Asamoah? He’s someone who knows how to manage the ball, he knows when to take three touches or when to play it quickly. I also wanted to play Dalbert today because he needs to play consistently. Emmers and Roric? They showed some good stuff."
Finally, there was a quick comment on the transfer market. "The club has a plan in mind and will try to implement it because we all know that negotiations can fail to end well, even at the last moment. Reinforcements are needed to do well in the different competitions that we’re approaching, even the best players need a substitute every now and then in order to catch their breath."
