Inter Milan assistant coach Farris happy with Napoli point

Inter Milan assistant coach Massimiliano Farris says they were happy after Saturday's 1-1 draw at Napoli.

An early Lorenzo Insigne penalty for the hosts was canceled out by Edin Dzeko after halftime.

“The second half performance says a great deal about the quality of this squad," Simone Inzaghi's assistant Farris told DAZN, as the coach was on a touchline ban.

“We had some regrets at half-time, but the second half showed a great reaction and mental strength in a fiery atmosphere. We smothered Napoli's enthusiasm and could've won it at the end, but we're content with a point here.

Napoli changed tactics to five and that was a sign of them backing off, while we still had fuel in the tank, despite coming off the derby and a Coppa Italia match, whereas Napoli had all week to prepare for this game."
