Stramaccioni defends Inter Milan tactics in defeat

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni insists his tactics deserved more than defeat to Lazio yesterday.

Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni insists his tactics deserved more than defeat to Lazio yesterday.

Strama changed his system again at the Olimpico by adopting a 4-3-1-2 tactic with Fredy Guarin as trequartista.

“I chose four at the back to ensure our centre-backs wouldn’t be under too much pressure and stop the wide men going too deep. I’ve never seen Lazio in such difficulty as they were in the second half against us.

“I’m not saying Inter deserved to win as such, but we didn’t deserve to lose either.”
