Chievo Coach Mimmo Di Carlo was happy with his side’s “attitude” in their 2-0 loss to Inter, but felt the red card “ended any chance we had.”
The already relegated Gialloblu lost their 22nd match of the season at San Siro tonight, and remain at the foot of the table on 15 points.
Although there might be light at the end of the tunnel, as Di Carlo started five players under the age of 22 with next season in mind.
“In the first half we were solid and compact and made it hard for Inter,” the tactician told Sky Sport Italia.
“I wanted the boys to keep in the game until the end, even when we were one down, we had a few opportunities to equalise.
“Nicola Rigoni’s sending off ended any chance we had of getting back into the game, because we ran out of energy in the midfield.
“It was important to close them down and not let them pass through the lines, they are good when they switch the play.
“We played with courage and never gave up and I’m happy with the performance, our attitude was good.”
Chievo never troubled Samir Handanovic, but were beaten by Matteo Politano and Ivan Perisic efforts.
“When you have younger players on the pitch, it is understandable if they have a hard time coming against the likes of Miranda and Milan Skriniar, but I believe that goalkeeper Adrian Semper will have a good career.
“I owe President Luca Campedelli a lot, and we’ll have to see if I remain at the club next season.”
