Genoa boss Alberto Malesani was left frustrated by Tuesday’s Serie A defeat at home to Inter.
The Nerazzurri collected a 1-0 win at Marassi in their rearranged Week 11 tie which was postponed in November because of floods in the city.
“We played poorly for the first 15 to 20 minutes, but we readjusted,” the former Bologna tactician noted.
“We then controlled the game for the rest of the half and we pushed more after the break, but we didn’t manage it.
“Whoever scored the first goal in the game was going to take home the three points. I can only compliment my players.”
While Malesani applauded his troops, he thinks that his team was penalised by some refereeing decisions.
“We were damaged,” he argued. “There are some incidents that have to be reviewed.
“I’m not sure that we should have had a goal disallowed and in the build up to their goal there was a clear foul by Giampaolo Pazzini on Dario Dainelli in the area.
“I don’t know if the referee would have made the same decisions if the incidents were the other way around.”
