Handanovic: "We have lost the focus we had before"

Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic has admitted that the team is unfocused this season after suffering their third 3-1 loss in Serie A.

concedes that the team's "lack of focus" was on full display in their 3-1 loss to Udinese on Sunday.

After taking an early lead on a

free-kick, the visitors saw it erased by an own goal from

. However,

Jaka Bijol

and Tolgay Arslan scored in the final minutes to give their opponents the win. As a result, Inter failed to take over first place and would also enter the international break in seventh place.

The loss was Simone Inzaghi's team's third in the league this season, and it followed a familiar pattern in which they scored once and conceded three, leaving Handanovic to wonder if they are losing control of the situation.

"We have lost the compactness we had before,"

the Slovenian said to Sky Sport Italia.

"It depends on many things. If you make technical mistakes and lose the ball, you are open, you are at risk. Today, we conceded two goals from set pieces. It shows that we lack focus. We know, we study things. When this happens, it is easy to analyse why. They did a lot more than us, they deserved to win."

"We cannot show consistency right now,"

coach Inzaghi added.

"We came from two wins, and now that is three away matches in a row where we went ahead and then lost 3-1. The main culprit is me because I am the coach, but it will require further analysis. We knew what Udinese could do, and we had to do more."
