Inter Milan coach Spalletti insists no problem with hooked Rafinha

Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti insists there's no problem with Rafinha after their 0-0 draw with Atalanta.

Rafinha fired over the bar and moments later was substituted by Eder.

Spalletti said, “I took him off because he seemed tired, otherwise I wouldn't have done that. Atalanta were crowding him out of the game."

At the final whistle, Spalletti had a tense conversation with Atalanta midfielder Marten De Roon.

“I told him that he can't order me to sit down and shut up. He'd best choose someone else to tell that too, because he's not doing it with me. I didn't say anything to him."
