Conte insists Inter deserved to reach the Coppa Italia Final more than Napoli over two legs.
Antonio Conte insists Inter deserved to reach the Coppa Italia Final after Christian Eriksen scoring directly from the corner flag within three minutes to get the Nerazzurri level on aggregate.
However, Dries Mertens finalised a classic counter-attack for the equaliser on the night, 2-1 to Napoli over two legs.
“Over the two legs, I believe we deserved to reach the Final. I have very little to reproach my lads for after this evening, because this is the aggressive football I want to see, trying to dominate the game.”
“It’s disappointing for the lads not to qualify after these performances over the two legs.”
“I am satisfied with the performance, as let’s not forget Napoli played a very defensive game to sit back and counter, so it’s never easy in these situations for midfielders to find the gap or passing channel.”
