Inter Milan president Moratti angry after derby defeat

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti was angry with his players after last night's 2-1 derby defeat to AC Milan.

"They were fairly blocked psychologically in the first half, but after going 2-0 down that freed them and they were able to play," said the patron.

Milan dominated for over an hour, but it was only until after Pippo Inzaghi and Kaka's goals that the Nerazzurri put some pressure on their rivals.

"It's a shame, as we weren't focused on the task at hand and we could have changed the result in what proved to be a classic hard-fought derby."

This result and Roma's 3-0 victory away to Sampdoria closes the gap to just three points with two rounds remaining.

"We have already been three points in front before. I think at this stage of the season nerves are bound to hit both teams," added Moratti.

"I was in all honestly focusing on the derby rather than any Scudetto celebrations. I was disappointed we waited too long to get going in the first half."
