Ivan Perisic admits Inter Milan 'disappointing' this season

Ivan Perisic admits Inter Milan have been "disappointing" so far this season.

The Nerazzurri picked up just one point from the opening two Serie A rounds against Chievo and Palermo.

“It has been an absolutely disappointing start to the season, which was really not what we expected," Perisic told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have several new players, a new Coach, so I think things will get better with time. It wasn't easy for Frank de Boer to prepare for the season in just two weeks.

“We have to do better and start winning. The first game with Chievo did not go well, while we had chances to score against Palermo, but only put the ball in the net once.

“Now we've got to win against Pescara, that is the only thing that counts. We have everything to bring the three points home to Milan. Inter invested heavily, but it's not money that goes on to the pitch and plays, it's us, and we have to deliver.

“Am I a leader? Why not? I hope that's the case. I feel good and I am ready."
