Inter Assistant Coach Massimiliano Farris: “Edin Dzeko Only Lacked A Bit Of Luck Against Atalanta”

Inter assistant coach Massimiliano Farris feels that striker Edin Dzeko was unfortunate in front of goal against Atalanta despite putting in a solid shift.

Speaking in a press conference after the match, as reported by FCInterNews, Farris stated that he was not unhappy with how the Bosnian performed in spite of missed chances to put the Nerazzurri ahead.

Inter had to share the points with La Dei in a match which saw both teams create a few presentable chances to score, but neither manage to find the back of the net either due to good goalkeeper or poor finishing.

In the case of Nerazzurri striker Dzeko, the 35-year-old found himself on the end of some good chances especially in the air, but was not able to get the decisive contact to break the deadlock and deliver his team all three points.

In spite of this, Farris was not too displeased with how the striker played across his time on the pitch.

“The decisive ball, in my view, could have been Barella’s cross, from Dumfries’s side,” he said. “I think he met it with the determination of the great striker that he is. Probably the only thing lacking was a little bit of luck, because Edin is a striker who connects and finishes.”

He emphasized that “Our attacking options are all of very high quality, and they have brought us to where we are along with the rest of the team.”

Of the overall performance he stated that “We made very few mistakes, especially because making mistakes against  Atalanta is always a risk, in fact one of their best chances came from an error by us, and also from their excellent pressure.”

“Our buildup gave us some good chances,” he went on. “A few opportunities come to mind – Edin’s header, D’Ambrosio’s last shot, Musso’s great save on Nino Sancez.”

He concluded that “In summary, we had opportunities that we missed but we also did not well not to concede a goal.”
