PARMA - A late comeback for Inter at the Tardini, the Nerazzurri travelling home with all three points after de Vrij and Bastoni goals cancelled out Gervinho’s early opener and secured a 2-1 win in Parma.
“I think it’s a deserved win, because other than the space we allowed Parma, who are a very dangerous side on the break, we managed the game well, creating plenty of chances to score ourselves,” were Cristian Stellini’s words after full-time. “It’s not easy to have all our players at 100% right now, two of our three defenders tonight hadn’t played for months. We showed an important response. We expected it from the lads and they didn’t disappoint.”
“We’ve created a lot of chances in these games since the restart,” added Inter's Assistant Manager. “But we need to start converting them, because that’s what changes opinions on performances and matches. We still need to grow into the new aspects of our way of playing, but right now we’re having a lot of opportunities to cause issues in the opposition penalty area. It wasn't easy tonight, but we reacted and controlled the game and the victory is deserved. These kinds of matches are won by knowing to wait for the right moment. We were hardly in a lot of trouble against Napoli, created a lot, and still didn't win.”
“We're lacking a few of the fundamental elements, especially in midfield, but now's not the time to talk about what’s missing. We got an important result, we believe in our boys and we want to continue on this path,” he concluded.
