A solid performance and a clean sheet to boot, there were plenty of positives to take away from last night’s 0-0 draw with Inter at the San Siro but one man with his glass half-empty today was Leonardo Bonucci.
Speaking to Sky and Mediaset this afternoon, Bonucci viewed yesterday’s match more as a matter of two points dropped than one gained for the Bianconeri as they look to close the gap on Serie A’s cluster of early leaders.
The defender began: “There were mixed feelings for us in the dressing room afterwards. We had the chance to win the game but unfortunately we just weren’t clinical enough.
“Overall, though, we looked very solid thanks to (Simone) Zaza, (Alvaro) Morata and our midfield’s great pressing from the front. That kind of hard work has served us well down the years and it went a long way to stifling Inter’s dangerous attacking players last night.
“We perhaps could have posed more of a threat in their penalty area, at times we just lacked the killer final ball, but yesterday we demonstrated that when we play intelligently and do our defensive duties as a unit, the only way for us is up.”
