Beppe Marotta has revealed that Inter coach Antonio Conte is still ‘very angry’ about Sunday’s home defeat to Bologna.
Inter threw away the lead to lose 2-1 to Bologna, prompting Conte to question his own future at the club, and Marotta admits feelings of ‘bitterness, disappointment and regret’ remain fresh.
“Great bitterness and disappointment remains from not having bagged all three points, despite us playing excellently in the early stages of the game,” the Nerazzurri’s general manager told Sky Sport Italia.
“In particular, we lament certain incidents, such as the missed penalty that could’ve put us 2-0 up.
“We can’t change what happened and there’s great regret on our part. Us managers, together with Conte, met to have the moment.
“Antonio has already started thinking about Thursday. He’s certainly very angry.
“Conte’s criticism shows us what kind of character he is. In criticising himself, he showed he wants to achieve much more.
“The Verona match is interlocutory for the journey we’re on, but it comes at a time when we have to show that we’ve drawn lessons from what happened yesterday.”
