Stefan Pretty frustrated as a plug that he is for a large part responsible for the elimination of Internazionale in the Europa League. The defender made Thursday night in the return against Eintracht Frankfurt with a more awkward error that’s only hit led in Milan: 0-1.
The Free wild in the fifth minute a long ball from Eintracht rid with his head, but the defender hit the ball completely wrong. This allowed Luka Jovic pick up and he made no mistake in the eye with goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
“That was simply a mistake and something will be punished,” said a schuldbewuste The Free after the race in interview with FOX Sports. “I wanted the ball deliberately do not bounce, but the distance to the target was still too large. That is why I wanted two times heads, but I had the ball more to the side should work.”
“Of course, it sucks that it happens, but afterwards there were still over eighty minutes to play. I direct the button to the converted and have then reasonably picked up, but unfortunately it was not enough to it yet to run.”

‘The Europa League was important stage for us’
It remained at 0-1 in Milan, and that was for the Frankfurt, Jetro Willems, Jonathan de Guzman enough to make the quarter-finals to reach, since the heenwedstrijd of last week in a goalless draw ended. The Free can’t get over from the Europa League adventure for Inter all ends in the eighth-finals.
“It is very disappointing how it turned out. The Europa League was after our elimination in the Champions League is a very important stage and then it is extra painful if you’re out of it,” said the 27-year-old Dutchman, who recognized that Inter also not much more earned against Frankfurt.
“We don’t have very much created and eventually they were even more likely to score in the transition. Samir kept us even a few times good on the leg. Sunday is the ideal match for this hangover to wash away.”
Internazionale take it in the ‘Derby della Madonnina’ against fellow-townsman AC Milan. That competition in Serie A is on Sunday evening at 20.30 hours on the program.
