Inter Milan coach Conte frustrated after Verona draw

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was left frustrated after their 2-2 draw with Verona on Thursday night.

Miguel Veloso popped up with a late equaliser for Verona to earn their point.

Conte said afterwards, “In terms of effort, hunger, determination, I have no complaints. Let's not forget, we played against a Verona side that keeps a high tempo and makes that its greatest strength. I think tonight Inter replied blow for blow

“There is the usual regret, that we conceded a goal five minutes from time on a throw-in. These are situations that are disappointing, because you drop points along the way and they add up. We deserved to win the game."

Inter have lost 20 points this season after taking the lead.

Conte added: “We're doing important work and I focus on that. I think you can see the results of the work we're doing. The fact we lost 20 points should push us to reflect and continue improving.

“We're well aware that we dropped points in a stupid fashion throughout the season, otherwise we'd be talking about a very different campaign."
