Inter ‘just need a turning point’ said former goalkeeper Walter Zenga and claimed he ‘would have been shot’ if he spoke like coach Antonio Conte.
The Nerazzurri coach continued to insist after the 1-1 draw with Atalanta on Sunday that his men are not getting the results they deserve.
Conte told the people who see him as more reflective after the Europa League Final last season to ‘lay off the wine’ and said his men lacked ‘killer instinct’.
Inter have one win in eight games and Zenga said his former team just needs a ‘turning point’ and said the lack of points doesn’t mean the Beneamata aren’t playing well.
“If I had said the words that Conte said, I would have been shot,” Zenga told Radio Sportiva. “I already said last year speaking with Antonio that he must go on without controversy.”
“Everyone would like to win, but the pressures that a team like Inter have are different from other teams.”
“The results can be seen in the end, drawing at home with Atalanta is not bad. There are moments when you produce a lot and collect little.”
“The team satisfies you, but the small details prevent you from winning. You just need a turning point, as happened last year at Atalanta in the group stage of the Champions League.”
“Sometimes they go to the semi-finals after having qualified last minute. It’s normal that every match should be judged. But if you don’t win, it doesn’t always mean your team isn’t playing well.”
