Inter Milan’s drop-off in form continues to trouble Luciano Spalletti as his team suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to a struggling Bologna side on Sunday late afternoon
A poor haul of just one point in their last three Serie A outings has seen the Nerazzurri putting the Champions League promotion at risk.
Fifth-placed Roma are now only five points adrift of the Milanese giants, and things could get quite messy if Inter fail to wrap up all three points against Parma next weekend.
Under-pressure Inter boss has, however, admitted he still has a good relationship with the players, claiming the squad supports him in spite of the crisis.
“The team is with me and as far as I’m concerned, I don’t have any issues there,” he stated.
“We created problems for ourselves today. Even when we should’ve been comfortable or were in a position to score.

“You then lose confidence in your own ability, and if the level of insecurity grows, you start to make mistakes, while the opposition can score.
“It takes a strong character to react, and we must improve on this.”
Meanwhile, the fans have already expressed their unhappiness with the way their idols have been performing over the past few months.
Inter’s frustrating run is closely related to the immense problems in the final third they’ve been dealing with since early November.
In their last 16 outings across all competitions, the Nerazzurri have managed to score more than one goal per match on just three occasions.
On the other hand, the rumors about Jose Mourinho’s potential return to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza have been spreading across Italy ever since the Portuguese tactician departed Manchester United.
