Inter Milan’s Geoffrey Kondogbia has been slammed by manager Frank De Boer following his side’s 1-1 draw with Bologna on the weekend.
Kondogbia was substituted out of the match after only half and hour, having been caught in possession leading to the opener from the visitors inside 15 minutes.
And De Boer has claimed he told the midfielder earlier that day to stick to his abilities.
“This morning we talked about it, that he had to play simple and on the Bologna goal he did not do that,” De Boer told Mediaset Premium following the match.
“We already talked about this and he makes the same mistakes often.
“We cannot accept that from players when we’ve told them many times already. I told him this morning, so if he doesn’t want to listen, then what can I do? It’s not the first time we’ve discussed it.
“We told him many times, he doesn’t want to listen.”
The result saw Inter’s run of three consecutive wins come to an end, and De Boer believed the game was lost inside the early stages.
“Effectively, we lost it in those opening 20 minutes, because the chances we created did not go in. After 20 minutes, I saw a team that wanted to win and played pretty well.”
