Corini: ‘Brescia dominated after break’

first_imgEugenio Corini maintains Brescia “dominated the second half, but should’ve closed down” the Inter strikers earlier in a 2-1 defeat. Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring with a deflected strike, then Romelu Lukaku doubled it with a scorcher from distance. Dimitri Bisoli’s finish ricocheted in off Milan Skriniar. “It was a good performance, we had to settle, as we’ve only been working with this system for a couple of days and at the start we didn’t have the right shape,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia. “We went behind with a bit of bad luck, but then dominated the second half and pushed to the very end. We should’ve closed down both Lukaku and Lautaro, but we were too passive in our defending. In Serie A, there are players who can put the ball in the net from 25 metres out. “Unfortunately, the ball didn’t want to go in, so we go home empty-handed, but I am proud of this team for many reasons. “It was the response I wanted from a team in a difficult situation and an uphill struggle, but I never doubted these players anyway. “We must realise our dimension and our role in this season. We had two debutants in Serie A this evening, so if we don’t realise where we came from, where we are and what we want to achieve, it’ll all become more difficult. “The analysis should be also on the way we played the game, not just the results. I understand the popular conception of our campaign, but I want what is best for Brescia and I don’t feel that this ‘in or out’ approach is healthy for anyone.” Mario Balotelli was certainly more impressive than at the weekend with Genoa, but still has only one goal this season for Brescia. “I realise Mario attracts a lot of attention, but we need to just leave him alone to grow and develop in the role, to understand the context he is in. A great player combines talent with other attributes and I am proud to help accompany him in this journey, but I can only do so much and he is the one who has to take the final step.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.
