Stramaccioni: "Undone by misfortune"

ROME – “Lazio were
the better team in the first 45 minutes, they made it tough for us and
we couldn’t find a way through them. But Inter turned in a superb
second-half display and we deserved to go ahead, we just didn’t get
the luck on certain episodes. Then Klose showed that he’s world-class –
hats off to him for the finish – but we didn’t deserve to lose.”
Andrea Stramaccioni rued his side’s defeat at the Olimpico after the
final whistle.

The coach continued: “We
came up a bit short in the first period, but after the half-time
reshuffle we came back out with a different approach.
Maybe we’re not good enough yet to overcome certain misfortune but that’s football for you. Should Ranocchia have had a penalty? As I said, we were unfortunate in certain episodes… like when
the referee blew for a foul on Biava by Milito.”

Stramaccioni concluded: “Lazio were excellent in the first half but I don’t
think I’ve seen a team come here to the Olimipico and cause them as
many problems as we did in the second half today. We might not have
deserved to win but we certainly didn’t deserve to lose.”
