Inter Milan coach Spalletti pleads with fans for patience

Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti has urged fans not to lose faith in his team.

The tension is growing around the Nerazzurri after their Coppa Italia exit to Lazio and one point from two Serie A games against Sassuolo and Torino.

“We analyse every game to see what went wrong and can be improved. Clearly, there are things we need to do better, but the team was always in the match and it was very balanced," insisted Spalletti.

“Inter could've gone through all the way until the final penalty of the shoot-out. We were eliminated from the Coppa Italia and the Champions League, which are important competitions, but we have to continue working on our idea of football and only after that structure is set can we aim at winning silverware.

“I realise fans have little patience left, because Inter haven't won anything for many years, but I cannot shoulder all the blame for years in which Inter got further away from trophies rather than getting closer. It takes time and there's no need to throw the baby out with the bathwater."
