MILAN - This was how Luciano Spalletti looked back on the draw with Lazio. "The need is to get up to a significant tally of points by the end of this season," he began. "Today, we approached the match in the right way with strength, conviction and the correct mentality. I expected what my team has shown so far, it’s been a good first half of the season. We had our chances. Strakosha made two good saves from Perisic and Borja. For me, Inter played a good game and I offer my compliments to the players. I liked how Joao Mario and Dalbert did when they came on. Ranocchia and Cancelo were excellent today. Perisic? He didn’t score but he did well, he has character and a good mentality. VAR? It’s not me saying that it’s important. You can’t compare between the good and the less good things coming from this system. The transfer market? There aren’t excuses when you’re part of a team such as Inter, but if the results are coming in then you have congratulate who’s here now. At the moment, we’re on track with our objectives."
