Inter president Massimo Moratti has been highly critical of coach Hector Cuper’s tactics, following Inter’s 1-0 defeat to arch-rivals Milan at the weekend.

“Cuper thought a lot about the team to field, so obviously he had his reasons,” said Moratti.

“However the result proved he wasn’t right. I felt we were going to lose the match, and this is why I didn’t go into the locker-room at the end.

“When I saw the starting line-up it didn’t appear to be the best team to play a derby with.

“The team was a bit risky, and it’s a pity, because the game proved we could have brought the win home without too many problems.

“The problem we had on their left wing is probably the worst problem. Maybe Cuper could have done something there, I don’t know, but what came out was something that made us lose the match.

“It was pretty obvious that on that wing there would have been problems. I understand Cuper’s worries on the physical condition of the three Argentines, but this is a derby, and the players can get over small ailments through the energy such an important match hands them.

“We lost the match on our right wing.”
