Nainggolan laments wastefulness

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan blamed their 1-0 defeat to Inter on their inability to turn chances into goals, despite dominating much of the game.

The Giallorossi surrendered top spot in Serie A to Inter with the result, and Nainggolan was disappointed his side wasn't able to make more of their chances.

"We dominated the game and played good football, creating chances, but we didn't take them and Inter took theirs," he told Mediaset Premium.

"That's football. If you don't score, you can't win. Aside from the goal, Inter didn't do very much. We were less reactive in front of goal and it proved fatal.

"I don't think Inter limited us that much at all. Mohamed Salah could've scored two goals, Edin Dzeko one. If we'd found the net, people would be talking about the performance very differently.

"We did create numerous scoring opportunities. The difference is that we didn't take them.

"We were coming off five consecutive victories and lost only two Serie A games this season, both undeservedly. We must forget this game and shrug off the regrets, trying to avoid mistakes going forward," he concluded.
