“Preferred to lose another way” - Inzaghi regrets Benevento gifts

Sun 31 January 2021 | 8:53

Benevento’s boss admitted that he ‘would’ve preferred to lose another way’ to Antonio Conte’s side as two of the four goals were gifted by them and he stated that the referee 'told me he made a mistake.'


did not get off to a right start when Riccardo Improta made a howler and diverted Christian Eriksen’s free kick into their own net early doors.

They resisted the first half of the game, but Luataro Martinez’s strike and a brace from Romelu Lukaku secured the three points for Inter.

It was a tough game that started badly, but we had the chance to equalise with that move that might’ve been a penalty,”

Pippo Inzaghi



I don't know if it really would've changed much, but the referee told me he made a mistake.

“We scored the third goal by ourselves too and that’s the disappointing thing. When you play against Inter, it’s tough anyway, let alone giving away goals like that.

“I would’ve preferred to lose another way, but it was an uphill struggle from the own goal and that Lapadula incident could’ve changed it. Conceding the second goal knocked the wind out of our sails.”

Benevento have only earned one point in their last four

Serie A

outings, meeting the target four times and conceding 14 goals.

These aren’t the games where we expect to pick up points and I’ve always said that we’ve done well so far, but absolutely nothing is decided yet. There are teams in the relegation fight like Torino and Fiorentina who have no business being there and we can only expect them to surge later in the season.

“We know staying in Serie A will be like a Scudetto for Benevento and we are a long way off achieving our aims.”

Adolfo Gaich joined Benevento on a loan contract with a purchase option from CSKA Moscow.

We wanted Gaich because he has different characteristics to the rest of our forwards. He doesn’t have 90 minutes in his legs yet, but we hope to get him on the bench against Sampdoria, so he can play about 20 minutes,

” continued Inzaghi.

We changed system over the last two games because Iago Falque is not in good shape, I didn’t have Alessandro Tuia, while Luca Caldirola had his first start in two months.

“Anyone who knows me will realise I don’t have much faith in tactical systems, it’s about the interpretation. When I have all the forwards available, I’ll play with three rather than two.”
