Fans jeer Inter after 1-0 home defeat to Bologna


AP, Milan :
Inter Milan players left the field to deafening jeers from their own fans after the latest setback on Sunday.
Inter lost 1-0 at home to relegation-threatened Bologna in Serie A to pile more pressure on coach Luciano Spalletti, amid speculation the club is preparing to replace him with Antonio Conte.
Spalletti insisted "the players are still behind me" and said "votes of confidence are useful for people whose jobs are in the balance, nothing changes in my daily life.
"But the jeers are right, when someone pays for a ticket it's right to believe they deserve something different, especially if the team is called Inter."
Federico Santander headed in a corner at the near post in the 33rd minute and that was enough to give Bologna the win in Sinisa Mihajlovic's first match in charge after replacing the fired Filippo Inzaghi on Monday.
Inter didn't even have a shot on target in the first half and was jeered off the pitch at the break as well as throughout the second half and at the final whistle. It also had goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to thank for keeping the score down.
Inter is now without a win in four matches and has lost its last three, including the Italian Cup quarterfinal to Lazio on penalties.
The Nerazzurri remained third but have seen their advantage over fourth-placed AC Milan reduced to four points.
Bologna moved to within a point of safety after only its third win this season.
Krzysztof Piatek cannot stop scoring for AC Milan.
Milan drew 1-1 at Roma in a direct fight for the final Champions League spot with the 23-year-old Piatek on target again for his new side.
