Inter president Massimo Moratti has voiced his displeasure over his side’s recent poor run of form.
The club have seen their pursuit of a top-three finish in the Serie A rocked by a 1-0 home defeat to Bologna on Saturday, while they stare Europa League elimination in the face after a 3-0 first-leg loss to Tottenham in the round of 16.
And Moratti says the team need to overcome the ‘delusion and anger’ that has built up recently.
“Yesterday was a real collapse, especially in the first half,” the 67-year-old told reporters.
“There is great delusion and anger, but we also need to be cool in evaluating things and searching to rebuild morale and rebuild physically.
“A question of psychology or preparation for the game? Maybe both those things; then everything adds up, but yesterday everything was thrown away at once and that is a serious thing.”
The president also refused to offer any guarantees over the long-term futures of coach Andrea Stramaccioni and sporting director Marco Branca.
“Branca has said he and Stramaccioni will remain? He said that the president will decide, and I am of the same opinion,” he added.
