MILAN - Luciano Spalletti’s Inter side saw their TIM Cup adventure end at the quarter-final stage on Wednesday evening. After 90 minutes of goalless 0-0 action, a goal from Cutrone in the first period of extra time eventually settled the affair: “We lost a bit of confidence,” said the Nerazzurri coach after the final whistle. “We did things with less courage and we didn’t manage to make the most of our qualities.
“As for now, we need to shift our perspective from a psychological point of view. We need to realise that we need that something extra. We are doing well from a physical point of view and we are not lacking in quality. However, things become difficult if you’re just waiting for someone to come in and resolve a situation. We must resolve it for ourselves."
“This squad has the potential to compete in any match and win against any opponent. However, we must be aware of our own ability and use this at all times. Sometimes, we are not completely capable of showing what we can do."
