Spalletti sorrow following first Inter loss
Luciano Spalletti has said he felt sorrow following Inter Milan's first Serie A defeat of the season at home to Udinese on Saturday.
Kevin Lasagna opened the scoring for the visitors to the Stadio Meazza on 14 minutes before an equaliser from the mercurial Mauro Icardi a minute later.
Rodrigo De Paul then restored Udinese's lead from the penalty spot just after the hour mark, while Antonin Barak made sure of the points with his goal with 77 minutes played.
After the match, Spalletti told the club's official website: "There’s sorrow like with all defeats.
"We’re not used to it anymore so there’s even more sorrow. But in the end we brought it on ourselves because we weren’t able to control the ball, we made errors and we were timid in our decision making.
"In the first part of the match, the team had the right balance and did very well, what happened at the start of the second half was unexpected.”
He added: "It did not turn out too well. We are not used to this, therefore the second half was something new for us.
"We will analyse everything from this match and then get back on track with what we’ve done so far.
"There wasn’t much between the two teams, although things become difficult when you are lacking something from your game and the other team can finish off their chances, just as Udinese did today."
