President Massimo Moratti admits he thought the worst after Juventus scored, but Inter “reacted to the injustice.”
Arturo Vidal netted in the opening minute of the Derby d’Italia, though Kwadwo Asamoah was clearly offside in the build-up.
“After 17 seconds I was worried that we were off to a bad start,” revealed Moratti on Premium Calcio.
“When I saw the replays and that it was offside, I thought we were back to the usual story. The players did well and reacted to the injustice.”
The Nerazzurri went on to win 3-1 at the Juventus Stadium, ending a 49-match unbeaten run for the Bianconeri.
Coach Andrea Stramaccioni surprised many with his 3-4-3 system, especially after declaring he would not risk the trident.
“Stramaccioni does not need to be compared to Jose Mourinho – he is good and that’s all you need to say.
“I knew for three days that he was going to use the trident. Now I am happy, as a season that seemed to be a transitional one is now getting interesting. Let’s wait before talking about targeting the Scudetto, though.”
