Andrea Stramaccioni feels Inter did not deserve defeat against Atalanta, but is not distraught. “It was unthinkable that we could win every game.”
Tonight’s 3-2 result in Bergamo ended their 10-match winning streak in all competition, which included every single away match of the season.
“We were late defending Giacomo Bonaventura’s goal, but for the rest I was not disappointed with the team,” said the Coach.
“Andrea Consigli did well in goal and in the second half we were fired up. Unfortunately, Atalanta scored their second during our best moment of the match. It’s a shame, as if we hadn’t conceded the third then we would’ve easily equalised again, as they were getting tired.”
The third goal was a debatable penalty awarded for Matias Silvestre’s challenge on Maxi Moralez, but replays suggest he got the ball.
“I didn’t comment on the incidents against Juventus last week, so I’m certainly not going to comment on this.
“We have to compliment Atalanta. I knew this was a difficult match. Inter did not deserve to lose, but we can only tip our hats to our opponents.
“I did not see a drop in the performance levels, so from next weekend we’ll try to get back on track in terms of results. After all, it was unthinkable that we could win every game.”
