ROME – In the post-match of Lazio-Inter, Antonio Conte explained to Sky Sports microphones the reasons that led his team to defeat in Rome: “The performance was good but we practically gave Lazio two goals. It is not the first time that we have made such mistakes in a big match, this year it had already happened against Barcelona and Dortmund. We must absolutely improve in this. "
Lazio-Inter, Conte: "We gave the victory to our opponents but it is part of our growth path …".
“The performance was there, too bad we gave Lazio two goals. In these games, they punish you for the slightest mistake. On the goals we have committed serious naivety, but it is part of our growth path. We have been too soft on the two goals we have conceded. Even with Barcelona and Dortmund we made mistakes similar to those of tonight, so we have to improve on these things in big games.
Our kids have to work hard to improve in these aspects. At the beginning of the second half we seemed afraid and this is not a good thing, but anyway I thank the guys for the effort they put in. We will try to bother above in the standings but there is a long way to go to stay at these levels. No team dominated the other tonight, it was a good challenge between two prepared teams.
They won because we gave him two goals. On the first goal of Lazio we were not happy. We don't have to get busy if we want to stay up there in the standings. We closed the first half ahead, in the second half we took the field to defend this goal, it is a very wrong thing because the best defense is the attack.
We will treasure these mistakes, we have ample room for improvement. Eriksen? First of all, I must try to create a tactical balance. We got here without Eriksen, so this should be taken into consideration. We will try to insert all the new ones in the best way. We must continue to work without thinking that there are saviors of the homeland … ".
