  23/04/2011: Lotito: "We did not lose but failed to win"

Lotito spoke to Sky after the game, and blamed the lack of concentration in addition to the state of the pitch for the failure to win.

"I think it is more appropriate to speak of a failure to win rather than a loss. Today we wasted a big opportunity to close the game early and use the numerical advantage in our favor. As opposed to the game against Catania, the team did not play with concentration and determination." said Lotito.

Lotito then put a blame on the psychology of the players:
"The players lacked competitiveness. I think the fact that we scored early and with a player from Inter red carded, made the players lose concentration and feel that the game has been won. This is an attitude that you cannot have when you are playing Inter. I don't think this is lack of experience, but lack of a certain character. We were very humble and gave them the game despite showing at times that we can easily control the game." 

Lotito then commented on the pitch: "Biava's slipping incident is enough to show how the status of the pitch was. It is really shameful to play in such conditions."
Lotito then spoke about the incident which raised eyebrows at half time when he spoke with Braschi the head of the referees: "He waved hellow and I went to speak to him, I am not the one to be accused to trying to have referees work in our favor. It was just a coincidence, we talked. I cannot just pretend not to see him because he has a certain position with the referees association." concluded Lotito
