Colantuono saw Atalanta penalty

Stefano Colantuono is “happy with the performance and the result” against Inter, but points out Atalanta were denied a penalty.

“The penalty should’ve been given and could well have been worth three precious points in the race to secure safety,” said the Coach after a 0-0 draw at San Siro.

Diego Milito’s spot-kick was saved by Andrea Consigli, while late on Lucio was not penalised for the sliding tackle on Manolo Gabbiadini.

“It’s even worse seeing the replays, as it looks considerably worse than it did on the pitch. In any case, I am happy with the performance and the result, as we put Inter under pressure.

“Ezequiel Schelotto should’ve done better, because he has immense quality and sometimes hides it all by himself. He’s young and will learn with more experience. Guido Marilungo sprained his knee and it will be evaluated over the next few days.”

The point is particularly impressive considering Atalanta were without top scorer German Denis due to a calf problem.

“We had six or seven important players out for various reasons and it’s not easy to set out the team in these conditions, but we are organised. We just have to improve in the final third.”
