Maicon, Chivu steam into Inter Milan teammates after Roma shock
Inter Milan defenders Cristian Chivu and Maicon have hit out at their attacking teammates after defeat to AS Roma. The Nerazzurri were defeated by a 92nd minute Mirko Vucinic goal at the Olimpico last night and the backlash from that surprise setback to Roma has begun.
"We had the opportunity to get three points, but the attitude we took to this match was not good," slammed Maicon.
"It was better to lose 3-0 than to fall in stoppages. Unfortunately, we made so many mistakes and Roma took advantage. This was not the same Inter seen against Bari.
"We must focus on getting back on track. This time we lacked a cool head up front and I saw too much egotism in attack."
Chivu was visibly angry during the match and went to the touchline demanding a tactical switch.
"If it keeps going like this, then I'm going," he reportedly told the Inter bench. "Either you make them run or take me off."
