Roma defender Diego Llorente expressed his frustration at tonight’s score-line versus Inter.

In his post-match interview with Sky Sport, Llorente commented on the team’s performance in the 0-1 defeat.

“It was a balanced match, with a lot of duels on the pitch,” said the Spanish defender.

“Tonight we’re going home with a lot of frustration because we had almost brought home a hard fought draw and we also had an excellent opportunity with Cristante’s headed effort. Now we need to work and look forward to the next games.”

“In the first half Inter applied excellent pressure and that’s why I think we need to improve on building from the back with opponents pressing us. In the second half I believe the physical aspect influenced the final outcome and that Inter’s two extra days of rest played a role in this sense.”

“We need to continue to improve, defensively the performance was there and offensively we can improve but we did some good things.”
