Simone Inzaghi was “very angry” after Inter scored a third goal before conceding a late equalizer in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Monza.
After Matteo Darmian’s early opening goal was blocked by Patrick Ciurria, Lautaro Martinez capitalized on a mistake by Pablo Mari to put Inter back in front and look set to win.
But with the score 2-1, referee Juan Luca Sacchi called for a foul when a free-kick was fired into the Monza penalty area, which Francesco Acerbi nodded to a controversial Roberto Gagliardini strike.
With a goal that would likely have ended the game ruled out, Inter suffered late heartbreak when Luca Caldirola scored in the 93rd minute to take a point for Raffaele Palladino’s side and give the Nerazzurri their fourth straight win in to deny Serie A.
Inzaghi was furious after the game and believed the referee’s early whistle had cost his side all three points as they missed a chance to move within five points of leaders Napoli ahead of the Partenopei’s visit to Sampdoria on Sunday.
“I’m very angry with what I saw,” Inzaghi told reporters. “Unfortunately, after five years at VAR, we made a mistake that punished us.
“A clear mistake in Acerbi’s goal, two Monza players fell between them. It’s a big disappointment on our part.
“I paid Palladino a compliment, [but] Without that mistake we would have won the match.”

Romelu Lukaku impressed for Inter as they ended Napoli’s unbeaten start to the season on Wednesday, but Inzaghi opted to start Martinez at the top alongside Edin Dzeko against Monza, against the Belgium international.
With Lukaku struggling for his fitness, Inzaghi is unsure when the forward will be back at his best, saying: “Time will tell, he’s training in the best possible way.
“He had a very good first half with Napoli, today it was difficult. We’ll do the analysis tomorrow when we’re more rested.”
When asked if he thought Inter were sitting back too much late in the game and inviting Monza, Inzaghi replied: “In the first half we conceded little or nothing.
“There are always difficult opponents, Monza is organized and has excellent players.
“Without what we saw [Acerbi’s disallowed goal]if this question had not existed.
“Now let’s start again. It is normal that there is great disappointment on all sides.”
