Luciano Spalletti’s Inter picked up a sixth straight win following the most recent league and Champions League fixtures, beating SPAL 2-1 at the Stadio Mazza in Ferrara.
"Following a game in Europe, there’s always some danger and it’s not easy to find the right balance, also in terms of picking the team. It wasn’t an easy game in a lot of regards and the guys managed it well, fighting hard and showing strength. At times, we gave the ball away too much which allowed SPAL to force things, this is what we need to improve on".
About team's goal of last night: "The initial idea was to get on top of our opponents straight away and suffocate their play. At times we did it well, at others we were forced to drop too deep. They’re a very strong side physically, they’re all good runners and they’re dangerous from set pieces. The team showed character against a side that had a lot of intensity".
Coach Spalletti applaude the reaction of his team: "The reaction after their equaliser was immediate, we went to go and get the three points and this is a characteristic that few sides have. We need to keep this because it’s really important".
