Simone Inzaghi: Courtois turned in a top performance

Inter Milan head coach Simone Inzaghi spoke to the press after his team lose 0 – 1 at home to Real Madrid at the San Siro in the opening game of Group D.

Inzaghi was full of praise for Real Madrid’s goalkeeper.

We were up against a goalkeeper who was very difficult to score past tonight,” Inzaghi said. “Courtois turned in a top performance.”

Inzaghi also was full of praise for his own team, but admitted you can’t lose focus against a great team against Real Madrid.

“Unfortunately we needed to be more focused. There was a minute to go and it’s disappointing to talk about a defeat after that sort of performance,” explained Inzaghi.

“We have to look ahead while remembering how we held our own on the pitch against Real Madrid. I asked the players to show character and bravery, and they gave me a positive response. We were up against a goalkeeper who was very difficult to score past tonight. Courtois turned in a top performance.

“I’m very disappointed for the fans, who were back at the stadium for a Champions League game for the first time in a long time, for the club and for the players, who gave everything on the pitch. Unfortunately, against certain teams, you can never let your guard down because they’ll punish you. We played very well and if we keep doing that, I’m confident we can get through to the next round.”
