Inter skipper believes they deserved to be left out of UCL

Wed 09 December 2020 | 22:36

Samir Handanovic concedes Inter 'are not yet prepared for the Champions League and wasn't worthy enough to go through' after a 0-0 stalemate with Shakhtar Donetsk.

While last season

Inter Milan

completed third in their gathering and proceeded to arrive at the

Europa League

Final, this time they are absolute bottom and out of European competitions before mid-season.

Much the same as in 2019-20, three Italian teams went through to the

Champions League

knockout stage, yet Nerazzurri got eliminated.

“It was a balanced group, I think we lost it both in Kiev and here. We could’ve done better, but there’s no time to cry over spilt milk, we have to focus on Serie A and the Coppa Italia,” Handanovic told to Italian reporters.

“Evidently, Inter are not yet ready for the Champions League. The points speak clearly, we won only one game out of six, that’s not enough and we didn’t deserve to go through.

“We had to score tonight, we didn’t, and frankly I expected Shakhtar to want something more than the draw, but they seemed content with third place.

“We know there’s a bad taste in the mouth after going out of the Champions League, but we can’t cry about that now, we have to focus on the next match this weekend in Serie A.”
