Inter performance should not depend on Lukaku - Inzaghi

The Italian head coach expressed concern about her team's performance.


coach Simone Inzaghi has expressed concern over his team's failure to win when

Romelu Lukaku

is not at his best.

Last night, Inter faced


in their third meeting in Serie A and lost 3-1 against this team. After a disappointing season in Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku returned to Inter on loan and performed well in his first two matches, but in last night's match he failed to live up to expectations and put in a poor performance.

After the game, Inzaghi expressed his displeasure that his team's performance was dependent on Lukaku's performance.

He said: 

"[Lukaku] had played the first two games in the best way.

"More than looking at the changes, we have to analyse a lost game, a direct clash that hurts.

"We know that we have to do more in these games to win, beyond the condition of Lukaku or Lautaro."

The Italian added: 

"The defeat stings for the way it happened. The match was balanced and hard fought against a quality opponent.

"Luis Alberto's goal [Lazio's second] broke the game; at 1-1, we had Dumfries' chance that would have changed things.

"We had to show more nastiness on our side because these games are played in moments."
