Inter Milan coach Conte satisfied with Spezia point

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte had no complaints after their 1-1 draw with Spezia.

Ivan Perisic canceled out Diego Farias' opener for Spezia on Thursday evening.

“The pressure is inevitable, as let's not forget that many players are challenging for something important for the first time. They are doing it very well and I think we could easily have deserved the win," Conte told Sky Italia.

“I was happy with the intensity of the performance, though we could've had more quality in the final third, which is why we're talking about a draw rather than a win.

“I saw a lot right and we tried to the end for a winning goal. I am above all pleased with the performance. Inevitably, there are fewer rounds left, we can see the finish line, and the pressure is taking its toll.

“We used up a lot of energy tonight and have another physical game coming up against Verona. We had just one day to work on preparation, as after Napoli we got home on Monday. The whole group prepared the game yesterday."
