Ranieri left "bitter" after Inter Milan defeat

Inter Milan boss Claudio Ranieri was left " bitter" by defeat to Juventus.

The Nerazzurri had numerous great chances in the first half and were kept out by Gigi Buffon’s heroics, but Martin Caceres’ free header and an Alessandro Del Piero strike sealed Juve’s 2-0 victory.

“There are regrets about this game, as for an hour we did very well, but the goal was down to yet another distraction on set plays. There were only four of them in our box, but we were drawn away by Mirko Vucinic,” said Ranieri.

“Andrea Poli was meant to be marking Vucinic, but Maicon lost Caceres because he was drawn to the Montenegrin. From there the game was over for us, as we lost in terms of intensity and determination on every ball.

“I am bitter at the result, because we held out very well against Juventus who deserve to be up there. We had studied this game and interpreted it very well, but only up until the Caceres goal. After that Juve legitimised the result with at least three scoring opportunities."
